Artist's Description

EVERY NOW AND AGAIN, I LIKE TO PLAY WITH LIGHT, JUST TO SEE WHAT IT CAN DO. SO, THE OTHER NIGHT WHILE I WAS TAKING NIGHT SHOTS OF THE NEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ACROSS THE STREET FROM MY HOUSE, I DID SOMETHING I HAVEN’T DONE IN A LONG TIME. I TOOK A PHOTO, USING MY CANON EOS KISS REBEL, OF “FAIRMONT SCHOOL ZOOMIED WITH THE LENS”, GOING FROM 300MM DOWN TO 70MM WITH MY QUANTARAY TELEPHOTO LENS, WHILE THE SHUTTER WAS OPEN WITH THE REMOTE SHUTTER RELEASE AND THE CANON CAMERA WAS ON THE BULB SETTING WITH EVERYTHING ON MY TRIPOD AS TIGHT AS I COULD MAKE IT. IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY, THIS SHOT WAS TAKEN FOR 10 SECONDS WITH THE APPERATURE ON F:16, SO I DIDN’T OVER BURN THE IMAGE AND BRING IN TOO MUCH LIGHT. THE TRICK WAS DOING THE ZOOMING WITHOUT CREATING TOO MUCH WOBBLE ON THE STREEMS OF LIGHT. WITH POST POLIO SYNDROME AND NERVE DAMAGE IN MY NECK, MY HANDS ARE STARTING TO SHAKE MORE AND MORE. SO, I WAS SURPRISED TO FIND THE LIGHT WAS FAIRLY STRAIGHT. THIS SCHOOL IS A NEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA ACROSS THE STREET FROM MY HOUSE. MOST OF THE OLD SCHOOL WAS TORN DOWN, ALL BUT THE ONE BUILDING THAT I WANTED TORN DOWN THE MOST. THE ONE STRAIGHT ACROSS FROM MY HOUSE, WHERE THE KINDERGARDEN CLASS WAS. NOW IT’S GOING TO BE A DAY CARE CENTER, SO HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE A LITTLE BIT QUIETER. THE NEW SCHOOL IS SUPPOSED TO BE READY BY THE END OF AUGUST, BUT THERE IS A LOT MORE CLEAN UP WORK TO BE DONE, SO THE CONSTRUCTION WORKERS PUT UP AN 8 FOOT HIGH WALL SO THEY COULD CLEAN UP WITHOUT DISTURBING STUDENTS OR NEIGHBORS. I DON’T KNOW WHY THEY BOTHERED, IT’S JUST SOMETHING ELSE THEY WILL HAVE TO TEAR DOWN WHEN THEY ARE FINISHED WITH THE OTHER MESS. SUCH A WASTE OF COOD PARTICLE BOARDS AND 2X4’S. BECAUSE WHEN THEY TAKE THE WALL DOWN, IT’S ALL GOING IN THE RECYCLE BENDS TO BE GROUND UP AND PROBABLY BURNED AT THAT POINT . I KNOW THE FOLKS THAT OWN DURAFLAME LOGS AND THEY WILL BUY ANY TYPE OF WOOD THAT CAN BE GROUND UP AND COMPRESSED INTO BURNABLE LOGS THAT THEY CAN MAKE MONEY FROM.
