Woken up last night by the flashing of red and blue lights over the road. It’s not unheard of for the police to be checking out whoever and whatever is going in the units over the road, but it’s not often they’ve got their lights going. It’s a scene we see regularly in film and on TV. I got up to have a squizz. The front door is one of those early mid-century doors with textured glass panels; the glass is all raised pointy diamonds and the lights flashing through created tiny bar shaped shadows in the glass. The effect of these and the flickering colours was dramatic, at least for me seeing me this in real life. It must be a challenge when making a work for screen to portray the sight of police lights in a fresh way.
