This is a study of the contrast in colours that happen between day and night and how darkness effects your perception of your surroundings. As a young child I can remember looking out of my bedroom window on a night and being intrigued by how the colours became faded and muted. Everything would appear to become lifeless and still and the glow from the street lights would add a transparent blanket of orange to a scene which seemed to dampen every colour apart from green, for some reason it seemed to radiate. Then when there was a full moon out the light from natures spotlight would highlight and cast a shadow over wherever it fell.
As a teenager I would walk to my friends house after school and a short cut to her house was through a cemetery. On the way to her house it would still be daylight but when walking back home, darkness had fallen and I can remember saying to myself its just the same as it was in the daylight, so I would make myself walk (not run) through the creepy grave yard instead of taking the long route home. Even today I still get an eerie feeling when darkness falls and I'm in an isolated area and I just tell myself I wouldn't feel this way during the day. Sometimes this reassurance works but then other times my heart starts pounding and I run like the clappers.
