For Joy- An Inspiration


Above is a Pink Floyd Album cover. For some reason I had this cover in my head last evening. I don't listen to Pink Floyd and I had not seen the cover in years; however, I suddenly remembered how it looked and knew that I wanted to capture those colors! I headed off to work today and achieved the same concept as best as I could. Using my classroom's overhead projector, with lights in my classroom off, I held the cd with my fingertip and kept tilting the cd until I got what I thought was the rainbow of colors that I wanted.

I knew, by looking at the playback, that I captured a single beam of light. I was thrilled! I thought I had done the best I could do. With a slightly, and I mean very slight, different angle of the cd, I saw more possibilities. It was a challenge to get the cd in focus and keep the angle but I think I did it. Now I can move on! Thank you to those who have been looking at these images and for not getting too frustrated that I keep trying the same thing over and over, day after day.

I agree...and especially love the last image. Can't get enough of those gorgeous colors! Your Pink Floyd album cover was cool, too. I'm curious, though...do you have the original album? As a comparison, I'd love to see a photo of that. Hey...maybe that's an idea for a future assignment.
