It has always intrigued me how Sam is able to capture smoke in photos. Not wispy smoke but smoke that almost looks opaque, like this one from her Tumblr account. When I saw sunlight steaming through the window of the powder room earlier today, I wondered how smoke interspersed with the sunlight would look in photos. The photos above, taken a few hours apart, are unaltered and unedited, just cropped to fit in the panel. Not as good as Sam’s; I should ask her if she enhances her smoke photos with Photoshop or whether there is an ideal light source for taking photos of smoke.
As for the title, well, it is a ray of light and there is no intention to draw a parallelism between the Madonna and the toilet, of course.
