Hi psephis, Thanks very much! glad to hear from you, sp
Wow! The hits just keep coming!
Thanks K, I'm really happy that this appeals to you. sp
I like this picture. I suppose they put the streetlights sidways for the wind? My colorblind boys can't see the difference between red and green stoplights...they have to go by position. Isn't that interesting? With all the colorblind males in the world, I can't believe they still use the red/green system. Just something I notice that many don't.
Dear Julian, Yes, the new streetlights do better in storms, compared to lights that swing from wires! I guess your sons might have inherited the green/red colorblindness from their great-grandfather Robert Slane, or possibly another ancestor. That must really be confusing sometimes. Thanks! love, sp
Didn't know my grandpa Slane was colorblind. My boys got it from Maren's dad as it passes through the girls but shows up in the boys. There are always ways to compensate for colorblindess, but the boys are still convinced that peanutbutter is green and grass looks better when dead.
I'd hate to be without the colors! Very appreciative for vision in general... but I know that the perception of color is very personal. I have always seen color ranges slightly differently in the left eye and right eye. Maybe the colors can be scientifically defined, but the experience of them is going on in our brains. thanks, & love, sp
Me too! My left eye sees color just a bit duller and my right eye just a bit brighter...together is the best. Maren thinks I am just strange. I used to feel bad for the boys being color blind, but that is just wasted energy. Besides, I think some things may be even cooler for them than for us....like dead grass, haha.
I love this shot! I love driving around the city at night (I'm worse than a kid.LOL)
Dear Julian, the kids being able to appreciate the color of dead grass is definitely a plus, except maybe for their future neighbors. and hi bc, I'm glad you saw it, the lights of all kinds are beautiful at night. but the worse to see the pot-holes! sp
