Light Observation #11

1. Colonial Square middle gate, Saturday, April 19, 10:00 PM

2. Light from the flood lights on the building is hitting a blossoming tree outside of my dorm.

3. Earlier that day I had noted how lovely the sunlight looked filtering through the pink blossoms. Now it was much later at night, and the scene was completely different. The sky was a deep blue/black and amber/orange light from the floodlights on the building filtered through the branches instead. The tree itself looked menacing, and the blossoms were no longer the pink blush but instead a sickly and dim orange. It was a completely different scene that was chilling and beautiful at the same time.

3. Amusement

4. Though I’m sure I’m not the first person to think of an amusement park for this assignment, I think that this fits the theme perfectly. The sun setting in the background signifies the end of a beautiful day. The lights on the ride are just starting to come on, bringing the fun of the day into the later hours. I think that the colors on ride and in the sky behind it are fun and lovely, giving an amusing atmosphere to the picture.
