Large pic.


2) I found this photo through a google search on,_d.c./jefferson_memorial_at_night.jpg&imgrefurl=,_d.c./jefferson_memorial_at_night.html&usg=__MUwdhscgbnSue0II34vqrcrwnD8=&h=480&w=640&sz=45&hl=en&start=0&zoom=1&tbnid=mCbQwPZ5YFnfxM:&tbnh=135&tbnw=186&ei=lnO4TeP0N4fy0gH145XXCA&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dwashington%2Bmonuments%2Bat%2Bnight%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26biw%3D1213%26bih%3D591%26tbm%3Disch&um=1&itbs=1&iact=rc&dur=769&page=1&ndsp=16&ved=1t:429,r:6,s:0&tx=177&ty=109

3) Theme: large

4) I chose this picture because I thought the light shinning onto the water in front of the Jefferson memorial looked “large.” The building itself is large but usually reflections are smaller scale than what they are reflecting. In this case though the light is so bright and since it was taken at night the light was able to be seen and seen in a larger scale being reflected onto the water. I feel like if I were to fold this picture up both the memorial and the reflection would be the same size. I also really like how large and regal the memorial looks in this picture especially up against the black darkness of the night.

2nd lighting observation

1) April 26th – 10p.m – on the sidewalk of Hempstead turnpike: I had my 2nd lighting moment while looking through a fence onto Hempstead turnpike.

2) The light was seen through the open spaces of a neighborhood fence. Colors and the size of the lights from cars and the glowing lights from fast food joints across the road were skewed through the small open spaces.

3) The bright lights and from headlights of cars and the neon, unnatural light coming from across the street fast eatery’s were blurred and skewed through the fence that was in front of me. When I concentrated on looking through one time space everything on the other side of it appeared small and within itself. As opposed to taking in the fence and everything on the other side of it that made it big and bright. The cars where going by really fast and since it was dark out the light glowed especially bright. Colors were sharp in the darkness and I felt like I was in the city at one point being bombarded with unnatural, glowing light.

1st lighting observation

1) April 25th – 11:00 p.m – watching a movie in my dorm room. I was watching Jeppers Creepers on Monday night when I had my 1st lighting moment.

2) In the beginning of the movie there is a scene with a brother and sister driving in the country somewhere and they stop for a bathroom break and there’s a wide shot of the sky, and the car and the tree near where they stopped. The sky is pink, and purple. Layered over each other.

3) This shot was beautiful. It was calming and serene looking. It was as if the sky was a swirl of pink and purple ice cream. It looked soft and warm. Its interesting how the shot was taken because this is the very beginning of the movie and in the beginning its very light out and there are bright colors but as the movie continues it gets progressively darker and scarier.
