A Venetian-Blind Rainbow

Here’s what I saw when I stopped by my office on the way to my 8:00 a.m. class this morning. Usually the light slanting through the Venetian blind into my office is white, creating interesting patterns of grayscale shadow on my multi-recessed wall. I’d never seen color in that light before, so I snapped this quick photo to document the mix of red, orange, and peach before packing up the gear for my film studies class.

Just as I was about to leave, though, the light  changed again—with an amazing last-minute bonus this time to start off my day. Not just color, but a rainbow!
