I’ve been playing with black and white lately…this is whole new turf for me.

My fourth week back in the classroom is drawing to a close. Four more weeks to go. My friends continue to ask how it’s going and–very honestly–sometimes I feel as though pure bolts of power and energy are shooting right out through my fingertips. Yowza! Next week is the Hundred Year’s War AND the Black Plague, so I am beside myself with joy and anticipation.

But I need to nap when I get home.

I don’t think my batteries are holding the same charge they used to.

    We have a light like that in our backyard … when I was a kid, it was attached to the gas line, and one lit it, and had a nice, flickering light in the backyard. Then, all of a sudden people got stupid and messed everything up, and no one could have gas lights any more because the stupid people burned things down… *sigh*

    Lovely shot.

    • Thank you, John. My son, who lives on a cul-de-sac, has a regular city streetlight right in front of his house. One day at dusk a neighbor kid and his dad knock on the door and ask if Matt could please turn on the light so they could keep playing basketball. Turns out the previous tenant had convinced the neighbor kids that he controlled the light switch for that streetlight. Love it!

    Thats great – i love the little pools and shafts of light playing in our environment. Hmmm – i’ve been strictly colour for some time, maybe its time to have a look at black and white.

    I see a lot of contrasts here. The light seems to blast out at you. Texture everywhere. Lots of grays. I like it.
