Well, here we are December 11, 2013 and the earliest sunsets of the year in Boston. That is something I really hate! It has been grey and gloomy, and the solstice is very near. There has already been snow and ice. I am refusing to let it get me down. People are dressed in bright seasonal clothes. I spent a half an hour on Sunday watching the children and parents in line at the Mall, waiting for Santa Claus. I was going to take a few pictures, but he apparently was running late. Too many reindeer to feed?
There are pictures to be taken – even in the seemingly drabbest light and most mundane things. I amused myself taking this IPhone image of the sun bravely trying to break through thick December clouds and then through a tightly woven pull-curtain. It is, I think, a tribute to the beauty of diffuse light. I’ll take the Moiré pattern as an added bonus.
