Light Tunnel

Underground tunnel connecting concourses at Detroit Metropolitan Airport features an elaborate multi-colored light show behind sculpted glass panels extending the length of the walkway, as well several moving walkways. The light patterns are synchronized with an original musical score composed by Victor Alexeeff, which runs for nearly 30 minutes before repeating. This installation, one of the first large-scale uses of color changing LED lighting in the United States, was produced by Mills James Productions with glasswork by Foxfire Glass Works of Pontiac, Michigan.

Past, Present, Future
#BWProject2017

Curated by +Al Chris with assistance from +Maayan Windmuller and me!

I've been cleaning and reorganizing the house for the New Year, and after filling a tall wastebasket with things I no longer need - my ancient, beat-up leather briefcase and lunch box, business cards from my old job, etc. - I realized I had the ingredients for this week's image right in front of me. Goodbye, office job; hello, life as a photographer!

Lanterns

+Johnny Wills throws us a Tricky Tuesday that sent me digging deep in my archives for this seasonal shot of one of the solar lanterns in my back yard on a frosty, frosty day.

Cows
#joinindaily curated by +Johnny Wills

Apparently, I rarely shoot photos of cows. But Hey, "Cows" are today's theme, so here's an outtake from a 2015 Scavenger Hunt featuring my miniature farmers and their herd(s)... which has me giggling all over again at the memory of releasing all those ladybugs from their refrigerated container and watching them wake up and start scrambling everywhere. I was brushing ladybugs off my hair & clothing for an hour after I finished shooting!

Aww, sounds like the Inaugural Committee is trying to foil a great photo opportunity.

On the other hand, thanks to the AP, the world knows what that strip of tape - which is probably easy to remove - conceals. :)

In the Middle ... of the neighbor's roof.

This week's snow has kept me close to home, but also provided lots of photo opportunities right in my own back yard.

Today's #joinindaily theme is In the Middle. Interpret as you will.

Butterflies
#joinindaily

Digging back into the archives for these little flutterbys dancing at Oregon's Faerieworlds festival, which used to be my favorite summer photo opportunity. Fairies, butterflies, take your pick - they sure were cute!

Faerieworlds is a three-day photo opportunity, +Mary Wardell (among other things, the tickets and signs at the gate tell everyone that entering grants blanket permission to be photographed). It used to be in the Eugene area, but last year they moved to Horning’s Hideout 35 minutes west of Portland on Highway 26. After five years attending (and shooting) I stopped going, but the music and the people watching are great, whether you attend for one day or the whole weekend! http://faerieworlds.com

Digging deep into the archives for today's #joinindaily theme (Churches). Apparently, I don't shoot a lot of churches.

Story
Tagline
If you think I'm "that Pat Kight," I probably am.
Introduction
"... a Molotov cocktail-throwing Brenda Starr." - my old college adviser, with delight, on seeing me for the first time since 1974.

When people ask "what do you do?" my profession isn't the first thing that springs to mind. I do ... all kinds of things.

Things that interest me: photography, live theater, knitting, communication technology, the Internet as a force for change, Web accessibility,  cooking, gardening,  liberal politics, feminism, ebooks, speculative fiction, geeks, creativity, craft, intelligence, beauty, compassion, peace, living lightly on this earth.

I'm "following" a lot of people I don't actually know on G+ simply because they have interesting things to say. If you're among them, please don't feel obligated to add me to your circles (although you're welcomed, if you want to). 

If you encircle me, don't take it personally if I don't reciprocate. Thanks largely to photography circle-sharing, I keep hitting the 5000-person max G+ sets on how many people we can encircle, and when that happens, I can't add more till I find time to do some house-cleaning.  

I try to sort what I post according to who might be interested in it, although most of my photography posts (the bulk of what I share) are public. Special interests that (mostly) get posted to select circles include:
  • Knitting and yarn-crack
  • Theater 
  • Cooking  and eating well. NOT about dieting/weight-loss.
  • Politics 
My politics are decidedly left of center, and while I welcome intelligent, respectful conversation with people of other persuasions, I'm not interested in demagoguery of any stripe. In particular, if you are any brand of religionist bent on saving or converting me, someone who believes Fox has the only "true" news on television, a Tea-Partier or a raving Libertarian, do us both a favor and don't encircle me. Life's too short to argue with people being Wrong On The Internet. Unless it involves snark.
