…Has the sunshine or any other light source caused you to stop because it’s highlighting something you didn’t notice before? —WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge
Sometimes you have to create your own reality. It’s not so much about thinking outside the box as it is about thinking outside the Box Factory.
I was working a Swing Shift 3 years ago, 3 PM—11 PM. It was a quiet night and there were very few pedestrians on the sidewalk of the span. I was in the process of making the monthly light check at the South Tower and headlights of the passing cars caught my attention as they swept illumination across the rivet heads on the lower side of the tower.
Looking at the effects of the light moving across the rivets gave me the bright idea [pun intended] to see what it would look like if I illuminated the rivet heads from below. I had a new pocket flashlight that had an LED chip and an adjustable lens, so I played with focusing the lens and positioning the flashlight in various spots before I came up with this image.
It reminds me a bit of Frank Lloyd Wright’s stained glass panels with his chevron patterns.
