The Series "Light House"

Nothing is less photogenic than a bare wall, or a corner, or a door frame.....until the wall is painted dark red, deep blue, or mustard yellow, until rosy-fingered dawn passes through the window, and red becomes orange, until the 'golden hour' turns one side of a corner turquoise, the other white. Then, a light green oval appears, with hazy sfumato edges. Cherry red windows shine on a dark red wall, and a sharp edge curves. The light moves fast--and I move fast to catch it.
