“Welcome to the roof of my building in Capitol Hill. Mandy’s topic choice of ‘Light’ was pretty broad, but I knew I was always fascinated with the form of old incandescent lightbulbs and I knew I wanted to incorporate one into my picture somehow. And what better way than to let a beautiful sunset light the scene?”–B

I had high hopes for this topic and had lots of ideas brewing in my head about what I would photograph. Sometimes the best photos are taken on a whim or, in my case, desperation. I had leftover sparklers from the last fourth of July and planned on using a model to take a fun firework inspired photo, but all my friends seem to lead very busy lives! As I was getting ready to step out the door to head to a bonfire with some friends, I took notice of the glass bottles I had saved for use of small flowers perched on my windowsill. An idea was born and I captured this cool effect of placing a sparkler in a bottle. The smoke is incredibly dense (and smelly). I was just happy that the smoke alarm didn’t go off in the stairwell.

Speaking of smoke, I am really excited about the topic that Brent chose for next week!

Smoke, fog, and steam.

Maybe he’ll let me reuse my photo from this week…
