Photo Observation #1


1) 4:37 PM, December 30th 2013. Photo taken by me from the backseat of a car while driving near Mt. Fuji.

2) Sunset

3) As the road gets darker by the minute, the blinding rays of sunlight pours into the car brightening up the place as if it is wringing out the last bit of energy before disappearing. In contrast to the cloudy sky and blurred silhouette of mountains in the right window, the setting sun is not only bright and powerful but also serene like the moment of silence.

Light Observation #1

1. 21:40 PM, January 28th 2014. The parking lot, North Campus, Hofstra University.

2. Streetlight in the parking lot.

3. As I walked through the parking lot in the middle of the night carrying my things from my old room to the new one, my face and ears hurt from the cold air. Everything around me including my blue suitcase looked colorless and yellowish like in the tunnels because of the orange streetlight filling up the whole parking lot. The sight was reminiscent of the cold winter in the airports in Europe and reminded me of the childhood with the nostalgia of traveling and being away from home.

Photo Observation #1


1. Taken by myself outside Hofstra USA in the Fall of 2012

2. Sunrise/Sunset

3. This photo is of a sunset. It is particularly interesting because of the cloud formations, but the lighting itself is incredible. From bright whites and yellows to deep purples, this photo contains all the warmth of the day dimming down into night. It seems to have the daylight disappearing even as you look at the photo, letting night take over.

Light Observation #1

1. 7:15 AM, Wednesday, January 29th 2014. 614B Portsmouth House, Colonial Square.

2. Sunlight filtering through semi-opened blinds and hitting the floor and bed.

3. Eyelids twitching open from the unexpected brightness, I was suddenly awake with blinding beams of light biting into my eyes. The more awake I became, the more the room became a warm, peachy color.
