When the student is ready, the teacher appears.


When our watercloset door is just on the verge of being all the way closed, light from a row of clear lightbulbs above the sink refracts into rays of light on the floor. Whiteboard on floor, Gitzo tripod with center post contorted and me practically performing gymnastics in this tiny space to get the framing right (using a fixed lens just to see if I could do it). Many "aha" moments for me. Maybe for woody too.

Note after votes: How very nice to have a personal best score and first time in the top ten. Feels like a good way to finish a first year since registering with DPC. I love having this result from noticing something as humble as a light pattern on a bathroom floor. Thanks for the votes and comments.
