I’m currently teaching a lighting class and a recent assignment focused on texture and the ability to minimize or exaggerate it as the situation required. Since sandpaper is all about that texture, it served as the perfect model.
That title might seem a wee bit heavy-handed, but bear with me.
Over the summer, I got to work with a new client. Slingshot Tools is an on-line retailer, carrying the safest and most precisely machined construction accessories on the market. I’m not talking jack hammers or drill presses; I’m talking about saw blades, drill bits, safety glasses and the like.
I hadn’t seen the ocean in nearly 20 years.
It’s interesting, that while I’ve spent my entire life with constant access to the Great Lakes, any time we go on a trip, I’m still drawn to water. We went to the Great Smoky Mountains and ended up hiking along rivers. We went to Chicago and always seemed to gravitate away from the city, to the shoreline. Any time we venture into Northern Michigan we go hiking – but we always hike toward the water.
