seventh day for rest        
eighth signifies completion-
aftermath of math

When you alphabetize spelled out numbers, eight comes first (then 18, 11, 15, 5 etc.) You can make a fun cypher for middle school kids.
The school I stroller past recently painted new numbers on the sidewalk for bus line ups,  so I took a shot of that 8, then started looking for other eights.
So in honor of our eighth month: a study of eights! As always, working from a Samsung Galaxy III phone.

Stylized, newly painted…you can see the old stencil.


Stenciled, original..taken a week before


Shuffleboard, solarized


Datebook…crystallized and batiked…used a lens that comes on a rubber band that you strap over a phone camera.

May the Holy Spirit guide you in all your endeavors!

    I am intrigued by the lens you strap over the phone with an elastic band….
