Lighting Observation 9

Date: 4/7/2016 Time: 9:23 p.m. Location: My dorm room

Objective Description: All of the lights in my room are out and it is almost entirely dark. The only light coming in is form the parking lamps outside of my window through the closed blinds.

Subjective Description:  The blinds are completely closed by the tiny cracks let bits of light sneak in. The light forms straight and orderly lines on my wall which is fairly blank. One of the lights is flickering and a patch of wall lights up randomly. As I try to close my blinds a way that will stop the light from coming in, the beams just move to the top of my wall and my ceiling. The amber colored pinstripes on my wall will not leave, so I just decide to enjoy my new illuminated wallpaper.

Photo Observation #2: College Student’s Night Light Night Life


My roommate, the lovely Kayla Bickel, took this photo. She was excited after getting her new camera and was testing it out by photographing things in the room last week.

This photo was taken at night in my dorm room, and it is the lighting that best represents my own night life.

The little fireflies of color in the room guide me into sleep most nights. They shine with life in the dark right before I close my eyes. They are calming and soothing. The soft small lights are anything but imposing. They do not blind or clash with their surroundings. Instead, they mesmerize and encourage forgetfulness of worldly cares. These little spread of rainbow lights on the wall can open one’s eyes to other worlds. They give comfort like a warm little candle in the cold dark night, and, with their bright glow contrasting against the surrounding dark, they gently whisper that those who see them are safe. They could instantly be a child’s favorite night light for protection from the beasts of the darkness because of their pretty hues that are apt to bring smiles of delight. Thus, these orbs, these gems, that hang in the room at night are easily declared this college student’s night light, a vital part of my night life. In addition, the lights, themselves, only breathe and sing their soothing songs of color at night and could be considered to have a night life.

Lighting Ob #2

  1. 2/3/2016, 3:09 pm, My dorm room
  2. Objective Description: The only light on in my room at the moment is a lamp with multiple heads
  3. Subjective Description: the light from this lamp comes off as a very warm and serene light. The normal lights in our rooms are very bright, harsh florescent lights that we try to avoid as often as possible. The lamp also has different colored shells for each light bulb which contribute to the warm and relaxed feeling of the light.
