Another Light Show

John's light (click to enlarge)
February 2007

What do you do when it is 9:15 at night, you're exhausted and you need to post your blog? With no pics "blog ready" in my camera from today I was getting nervous...I had to get creative and quick. I got our new lamp, a white wall and started shooting and experimenting with my camera. I really liked this image above because of the way the light sweeps across the frame. It is warm and soothing. Every now and then I like to use sepia or black and white tones in my editing but this one is exactly as I shot it...with no changes. I am very happy with it. It made me want to crack open a book and start reading (for those of you who don't know me, that is a big deal). The image below is from a different angle of the same lamp. I like the very clear contrasts of light it offers.

In the rush of getting my post done, I inadvertently came across a couple of gems that I didn't expect. I think they are already two of my favorites. I love it when that happens...

Anna, I had to come back so I could sign in. Google will not let me into my blog or comments unless I leave comments where I can sign in with my google password. I cannot do it on the regular sign-in-page. POOH!

Feel free to delete this later.

Hi Anna, thanks for visiting my blog. I really like the second photo here. It looks like it would make a good poster photo for a science fiction movie
