The moon last night was beautiful. It was big and yellow and not at all how my photo shows it. I am fascinated by photos taken in low light. I am fascinated by the way light affects colour. Our eyes are pretty amazing. We actually see in low light really well. Our eyes perform much better in low light than cameras do. I am fascinated by light and colour in general. It is one of the reasons I am so interested in patchwork and quilting. It also manifests itself when you draw or paint. You know how people often talk about how evocative smells are, well for me light is the same. That quality of light that would happen when I lived in Brisbane at the end of a warm day, just before a thunderstorm erupts. Occassionally I have seen that light here in Adelaide, but it feels so Brisbane to me. I'm looking forward to the weekend. I'm really hoping to stitch!
