Blue Light

If you happen to be over at Facebook, I started up a page for Ottawa Daily Photo there the other day. Mostly for now it'll just be the links and the occasional archive photo. In between wrongful suspensions and being locked out for no reason. Did I mention I'm not a fan of Zuckerberg these days?

I have more from Kontinuum today. Staircases and passages in the exhibit tended to be lit with rich, moody colours, particularly blues, which gave things a dream-like feel.

Down at the main platform area, the images and music played for five minutes or so before restarting, and the lighting of the station itself mimicked the movement at times of a train rushing through, as will happen next year when the LRT does pass through these stations beneath the downtown core.


  1. Looks amazing - I'll pop over to Facebook now and we can like each other all over again - though, to be fair, I don't really understand it...

  2. ...not to be confused with Kmart's blue light special in aisle number 8.

  3. The display seems so interactive.
    Did you get a friend request from Zuckerberg?I think we all did. I had to chuckle.


  4. @Linda: so do I.

    @Kay: quite so.

    @MB: definitely.

    @Nancy: indeed.

    @Mike: it was a sight to see.

    @Tom: definitely not.

    @Francisco: thank you.

    @Janis: let's just say I dislike the way the site has treated me.

  5. Hello, I like the blue, cool effect. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

    1. Love these images William, you can't beat blue for that surreal feel!

  6. I like that idea of mimicking the trains passing through!

  7. @Eileen: there were times I'd catch some of these perspectives in red or orange, but blue seemed quite dominant.

    @Grace: definitely not.

    @Christine: it was enough to fool you into thinking a train was coming into the station. Logically speaking you knew that was absurd, but some part of you just registered: train, step back from the edge of the platform.

    @Red: very clever indeed.

    @Karl: I thought so!

    @Revrunner: thanks!

  8. Surreal and quite eerie! Gives me the blues!

  9. I bet you get an almost psychedelic feeling in this exhibit.

  10. What a weird experience it must have been!

  11. oooh I love these bludy mues! Er, moody blues~

  17. I think these photos are very fitting for Halloween haunting.

  18. Blue works well and to great effect.

    All the best Jan

  20. @Beth: it does, yes.
