David mon ami,

But there is a great value here!  Your ability to see "LIGHT" and be
motivated by it and make use of it.

That alone is worth all the value of seeing and appreciating a magical light
moment. Look there are far more people about the world, including many
"camera carrying photographers" who couldn't see light nor be motivated by
it if this guy ran over them with his boat. 

They use their eyes to merely avoid banging into telephone poles or kicking
over garbage cans. See Light? Not in the blink of an eye unless it's some
damn twinkie light flash going off destroying the "available light" that
motivated them in the first place.

The moment they use flash they illustrate they don't have a clue what "REAL
LIGHT" is all about.

But this? Without question the light has made something out of nothing! Good
on you!

Sometimes the "LIGHT alone" is the picture as we see here. Is it going to
win a Pulitzer prize? Not likely, but who cares as it's such an eye catching
