7:12AM is the time in View of Delft

Update — I did have one morning in the beginning of May that had the perfect light, so I witnessed it from my apartment because it was in the beginning of my sleep catch-up mode and I was sooooooooooo tired.  Further, on all the days I set my alarm for it — of course it did not rain prior to 7am.  I will probably attempt this every year now just for fun. 

The NY Times had a fun little travel article about Delft, where the visiting author specified the exact time in Vermeer’s View of Delft painting was 7:12(am).  Pic below is a screenshot of said clock from Essentialvermeer.com.

That does give me more guidance as to the lighting in the part of the tunnel that has been slated for a sloping landscape.

This is a self-created slideshow study (for the previous Lucy Nouveau project) regarding lighting which is going to be revisited this morning with a cup of tea and freshly baked deliciousness just popping out of the mini oven.  It may be wise to go see the view myself, one of these days at 7:12am.  *Life Goals*

Further this week, it has been entertaining scrubbing twenty years of established lichen colonies off of the tunnel walls.  See the difference! Shiny!

The entire tunnel is now a vision in my head which is going to be painted with much gusto.  Enjoy your day!

Thanks for reading my blog.
