Skywatch .... super-dooper street light


A REALLY bright street light!
I am appealing for help with sourcing photos that I can use as reference for a painting of the Bosphorus Bridge, that I have been commissioned to do. If you can help, please drop me an e-mail ..... sueatelgeckodotcodotza
Tom at Wiggers world will link you to lots of really cool Skywatch pix. If you have time, go and meet some lovely people around the world.

Suzi: I thought the Sun was lighting the street light. Now I'm not sure. Nice SWF.

I am now taking a diminishing dose of steroids for my Rheumatoid Arthritis pain and it works. I believe the chemotherapy drug is spelled "Methotrexate" that is used to treat a lot of things from cancer to arthritis will be used next. I just relish in being pain free.

So I am not participating in Sky Watch Friday just because I might not be able to make it around to all.


I enjoyed seeing your blog post for Sky Watch Friday and I thought your photography was excellent.

I don't know if you like to read or not but if you do this place is amazing.

I just got my first shipment of used books from Strand's bookstore in New York City, day before yesterday and they are in excellent condition.

They have 18 miles of used books. Think about that—18 miles. I had to start out by just choosing a category, like photography, and go from there.

I don't know how in the world they can keep track of so many books.

Look up Strand bookstore or copy and paste the URL here: http://www.strandbooks.com/app/www/p/home/

Wonderful radiance! A wonderful focal point. Lovely.

This is blinding in its intensity, isn't it. Must have caused much squinting when you were setting it up.

Good luck with your quest Suki..

Pretty one for SWF! Which reminds me the quote... "we all live under the same sky, but we don't all have the same horizon".... Mine's up too hope you can drop by. Happy Weekend!

I love how the light gleams! Great color on a silhouette.

babooshka said...

Super dooper photography aswell. I love sunflares and try and include them when I can. My camerea is a sensitive beats and objects, but as you proved the results are stunning.

I will pass the word around re your photo hunt. 'm sure your interpretaion will be stunning.

That's some high voltage light! :)

Suzi-k said...

thanks all.
Mr Q, thanks for the link, I'll go there just now. "just now"... good old South African expression which means "a bit later"... did you hear it used when you lived in Pretoria?
Fishing Guy.... it is the sun
Julie, yes, scrunched up my eyes and hoped that I had the position right!
Babooshka, thanks, I bet in your circle of photographers there will be some interesting angles on the bridge!

Sorry about Istanbul, the nearest I have been was a congress I had to drop because of disease.

I'm guessing that does not meet Federal Energy Star guidelines for power usage. :)

I love the SWF picture. Can't help with the picture your needing but I noticed Wigger's has put an appeal on his site so I'm sure you will have one soon. Have a great weekend.

I don't know if this is of any help but I noticed i stock had Bosporous Birdge Images as downloads. Not sure what the fees are.

Lulu publishing might have downloads too, usually a nominal charge.
