Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

As the lights go down – Day 2, part 3

As the lights go down, things get interesting for photography, and I decided to mess around with my camera down on the beach in the fading evening light. The sunset itself was quite pretty, particularly the effects created in the still waters of the lagoon behind the beach, but more fun was had trying out different time exposures in the dusk as the waves were breaking on rocks and sandy shore.

I spent around 40 minutes and took about 80 photos, just seeing what happens to the movement of waves when recorded at different time exposures. To get an idea of what “essence” of wave motion is captured at different settings, note that the first photo below was a 2 second exposure, while the second was exposed for 15 seconds. The latter is a bit more ethereal, with the waves leaving only a misty trace, whereas the former has retained some of the shapes of the waves as they break.
