I am falling behind on posting these photos, but I’m doing pretty well at keeping up on taking them (most days)- here are a few
January 19, 2012
A daytime shot of a sunny morning shining through the leaves of thick foliage.
January 20, 2012
For some reason, I am fascinated with the perspective view of hallways and fluorescent lights.
January 21, 2012
My first South Carolina thunderstorm.
January 22, 2012
(Mulligan: More shots from the thunderstorm last night)
Pouring rain on wet pavement in the light of an amber streetlamp.
January 23, 2012
(Mulligan: did I really miss two days in a row? I suck at this.)
- On a rainy night, a car passes an open camera shutter.

2012 photo of bedroom ceiling fan #2. Probably by the end of the year, I'll have enough for a book of ceiling fan photos.
January 25, 2012
A fountain on the College of Charleston's campus. Bright lights from below highlight the textures well.
January 26, 2012
Morning sun, a tree, and a cell-phone camera. Dig it.
January 27, 2012
I have not rotated this photo on purpose. This photo will become a set design someday- for something. I call dibs on the lighting as well.
January 28, 2012
(Mulligan, but I’m glad I didn’t take one on 1/28 in order for me to show this very cool shot I took the day before)
I pass this contemporary art every day. The way that the setting sun shone through the windows on this day really struck me.

My father-in-law Don walking up Folly Beach. I don't have very many daytime photos in this series. This is a good example of a strong directional source (coming from the right side of the photo), while the whole scene is well lit due to the bright clear day.
January 30, 2012
(Mulligan. This moon actually appeared over South Carolina on January 26)
I'm told that this sliver of a crescent moon is seen everywhere. But only South Carolina has it on its flag. The night before it was even slivery-er. No camera. Fail.
January 31, 2012
(Mulligan- back to Paris for just a second)
From Centre Pompideau on January 1. An exhibit that I threw out of focus. Once the details are de-emphasized look how the focus of the hanging lighting stands out.

This is on the top of my parking structure. I think it is to help guide ships into Charleston Harbor. Or it is Sauron's Eye.
February 2, 2012
Happy Groundhog’s Day. No picture of a groundhog, but if this is what winter is like, I’d be happy for it to hang around for a little while.
In some ways, Groundhog’s Day is the height of the year for lighting designers. It’s a holiday that centers around a shadow… I’ve never thought about it in that way before.
A detail of my lampshade. Not a real Tiffany & Co.

The iPod is the light source. The face of the microwave becomes a reflective surface. The old-school Tigers logo is a bonus.
February 4, 2012
During a focus session for "Hush: An Interview with America" at College of Charleston. Pictured is lighting designer Hannah Strickland.

A photo session with a guitar and a clip light. Look at those strings shine!
All in all, a successful month of January. I’m pleased with the light and shadow that I’ve been able to capture. 1/12 of my project is done. A few days missed, a few crappy pictures, and that will not likely change.
As Johnny Carson’s program used to say:
More to come…
