I wanted to test out the new dirt my friend and I collected as well as the light penetration studies I hoped to implement.  The light effects are super cool, and the dirt is surprisingly sandy – as in, not native Cincinnati dirt, which is more clay than anything.  I may need to do more mixing, but I need more dirt anyway so maybe the two sources will even out.  I received an email from my craigslist ad weeks ago asking for dirt.  I like when aspirations seem to align like that!

Here are some photos from my first sample endeavors.
