The light here

is so bright. Even in the NZ equivalent of the end of February (2 months after the equinox), when the sun comes out, it is dazzling. For me, this makes everything more noticeable - and if you know me, you'll know that 'noticing' matters both theoretically and empirically!

At nine in the morning, the light sent shadows of old oak trees across the road:

Meeting up again with paintings I made and left here in 2015, I notice how they too captured the light. In the title too!
