Day 207 : lights


Sandy: Tonight I strolled along the waterfront on the Embarcadero in San Francisco to view the art installation of lights on the Bay Bridge. The world’s largest LED light sculpture – 500 ft high by 1.8 miles wide – is programmed to never repeat a pattern over the two years while on display. It had the same mesmerizing effect on me as sitting by a flowing fountain or lit fireplace. The lights dancing, sparkling, fading in and out brought a peacefulness to the area. The bay water reflected back a very faint glow, like the lights were tapping on the surface. It is anticipated that over 50 million people will see it live, plus more online and in the media. (Sorry, my rendering doesn’t do the bridge justice. Drawing an illumination is near to impossible especially when it is 25,000 tiny white lights.)

Sandy’s year long journey – going from being a right-hander to left-hander, and Kelly’s parallel trip as a left-hander doing things as a right-hander.
