1) February 8th, 6pm, outside Vanderpoel
2) A lamp post illuminating the side of a tree
3) Another cold, windy night here at Hofstra. As I was walking to the Student Center I passed a barren tree, lit up on one side by a lamp post. The tree had no leaves and its branches were at sharp, jagged angles to one another. The light hit one half of the tree, creating a bright white reflection on one side, and a dark shadow on the other. The light lit the tree from above on a steep angle. The stark contrast between the two sides of the tree created a feeling of danger and suspense. The scene was like a black and white film with the dark sky behind the tree and with the only prevailing colors being white , black, and gray. The light cast sharp shadows on the ground adding to the almost melodramatic feeling of the moment.
