Mundane Monday #161: lighting

Welcome to Mundane Monday #161, shots of mundane objects that are not so mundane on second glance.

A lamp or a light could be mundane. It isn’t when the electricity goes out. Suddenly light and head and power become much less mundane and much more amazing.

This light is in the lobby of the Hotel Murano in Tacoma, and it is another example of the amazing glass art that is all over Tacoma.

Last week’s photographs for Mundane Monday: stairs. Published on Tuesday, so no other entries…… hope for some beautiful photographs this week!

It’s Monday already somewhere in the world… I am posting before my Monday this week.

 

 

 

question

Blogging from A to Z, Q is for query, quest, question.

I took the afternoon from work yesterday to go for a walk with my son, who is visiting from Maryland. We went to Chetzemoka Park and down to the beach. More blue herons and more photographs! Hiking back, we saw a halo around the sun, above the ridge. I know that this is formed from a reflection of ice crystals in the atmosphere, more information here. It is magical! And there was something in the tree…. what is it? A quest with a zoom lens reveals:

In the first picture the angle is different and the eagle is right by the trunk of the tree, difficult to see. We were watching great blue herons take off from the beach and land in  trees on the ridge but I heard an eagle’s cry and the silhouette is wrong for a great blue heron.

Queries and questions and quests: happy letter Q.

Mundane Monday #156

Welcome to Mundane Monday #156: our theme today is serendipitous light. Does serendipitous light contradict mundane? I don’t think so. We were walking on the beach in the evening and as the angle of the light changed, Marrowstone Island lit up under the lowering clouds. I stopped taking pictures of the flock of brant and took pictures of the land and sky instead.

What picture do you have of serendipitous or accidental or fortuitous light? Link and I will post them next Monday.

Last Mundane Monday #155, the theme was close color.

Happy Monday and I hope that your sky and horizon light up more than once this week.

There, I managed to mess up links to #155 at least three times….learning.
