WINDOWS, 55/365

Lots of bright, natural light from many "Windows," Theme #362, is one of the nicest features at the local cancer center.

Mr. L. began his treatment at another clinic. Tiny high windows, stark lighting, a little too small for it's patient load. It was like an extra level of depression on top of an already depressing circumstance.

I watch patients and families here and I can see the difference this environment makes in their response and outlook. It's amazing.

  1. This shot is a pane, and another pane and another and another, and lights for the lighting effect and you have used a starburst filter to make it look like real sunlight, very clever. Great Take for the theme.

  3. Real sun, real sunbeams. No staraburst filter either. That's what happens when the Mr. has early appointments in a place with east facing windows.

  7. Love the sunburst! Before I read your posting I thought it might be a moving ceiling fan.

  8. A super take on the theme! I really like the shot, especially with the hanging lights in the middle. A lovely, bright spot in a scary kind of place!

  10. Nice shot Lorri. The flare from the sun plays nicely against the hanging lamps.

  12. Sunshine on a dull situation should brighten up the rest of the day. Hope goes with you....
