Date: 2/04/2016 Time: 9:40 p.m. Location: Outside of Lowe/Bits
Objective Description: It’s dark out and the only the light is coming from the street lamps around campus. There is also some glow coming from classrooms and offices in Lowe and Memorial. The few people that are out around this area of campus are mostly silhouetted and hard to make out.
Subjective Description: Many people feel scared or anxious in the dark. I usually feel that way a bit as well, except for tonight which is why this lighting moment caught my attention. The gentle glow of the street lights accompanied with the light from a few random offices was actually a wonderful moment. The lamps were not bright and harsh so the light coming from them was warm and comforting. It was very peaceful out and the darkness, with the accompaniment of the lamps, was beautiful instead of frightening. The silhouetted people and dark buildings made everything feel abstract and almost dream like.
