"October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came-
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band."
- George Cooper, October's Party
"The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry's cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.
The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I'll put a trinket on."
- Emily Dickinson
We use energy star qualified CFL's - compact fluorescent light bulb. Not only do they save money but they use 75 percent less energy and lasts about 10 times longer than an incandescent bulb.
Lighting is responsible for one-fourth of all energy consumption worldwide - mostly non-beneficial night time lighting.The United States is the largest energy consumer in terms of total use and the per-captia consumption in the US has been pretty much consistent since the 70's. It is also referred to as light clutter, light trespass, over illumination, and light pollution. Yikes.
As I searched, I realized I have several photos containing primary colors, so I narrowed it down to two, or deux as the case may be...
The first photo was taken in Hilton Head, South Carolina and the second one in Nice, France; two cities whose common bond is the water that separates, as well as unites them (and us)... fcp
“I have played hell somewhat with the truthfulness of the colors”...Vincent Van Gogh
