Light

But soft! What LIGHT through yonder window breaks.....

PSHunt

First off, I'd like to thank Leah for inspiring me to join Saturday's Photo Scavenger Hunt. Thank you also to Ghee for getting me to do memes, and a honourable mention to Frances, on whose blog I first saw this meme. And of course, to the head honcho TNChick, muchos kudos! Now to the picture....

This is a picture of the speaker's chair in the Debates Room in Hart House, at the University of Toronto. My study group used to meet there this past October (to study, not to debate). During a formal debate, the guest speaker makes a speech to shed light on the issues being debated. This is usually the highlight of the evening. Former speakers include the Rt. Hon. William Lyon Mackenzie King, then senator JFK, the Rt. Hon. John Diefenbaker, etc. Incidentally, the pursuit of knowledge and academic enlightenment, is often represented by a lighted lamp.

Hey Angelo, welcome to the Photo Hunt. It is fun isn't it?
Your picture looks great and the post is so true to the theme. You write so well. UoT must have lots of great rooms like these one?

Eric said...

Unique interpretation on the theme of light. I like the light play behind and above the chair as well. Welcome aboard...

Hey,

Angeleno- Thanks for visiting my blog! What a beautiful picture that is. I am more determined than ever to take a photography class and to actually really learn how my camera works. I usually just use the "auto" setting!

Nothing like the smell of polished wood -- and all the famous butts that have sat in that chair -- enlightening for sure. Thanks.

Angelo said...

Hi Ghee, I could never be a speaker, I have stage fright :)

I turned the moderation on again, coz I wanna make sure I don't miss any comments. I like to respond to all of them as much as possible.

Have a great week ahead Ghee!

Shoshana said...

Angelo, about stage fright, have you tried going to local meetings of Toastmasters?

It's a wonderful group to get rid stage fright and anxiety, plus you get to hone your talent or develop one.

Angelo de los Angeles said...

Thanks Shoshana, I've never heard of the toastmasters, but if I build up the courage, I'll look them up one day :)

Firefly said...
