3) “Amusement”

4) The word amusement takes on two different connotations to me in this picture. For one, the musical “Ghost” was a HUGE source of amusement and entertainment in my life as it was another factor that played into me wanted to be in production theatre (specifically light design). The production value of this show was so extremely high, with the illusions and tricks of the eye, projections, set and lights. It was one of the most amazing productions experiences I have ever had. The second meaning of the word amusement comes from the lighting of this photo. The illumination of the poster causes the image to be projected onto the building in such a way as to suggest that the poster itself has a “ghostly” counterpart. It is also kind of cool that it is harder to make out the man’s figure in the image projected on to the building.

2) The fluorescent color of the ceiling light being affected by the fan just below it.

3) I always thought that it was strange the way the lights in the ceiling were directly over the ceiling fan as if the fan was an afterthought. I finally realized why they usually but the lights as part of the fan, below the propellers when I felt myself getting annoyed by the constant shadows of the fans propellers passing the light and creating an almost rhythmic appearance of a shadow. At first I was very excited about this lighting moment but found it to get extremely annoying after a few minutes.
