Seeing the Light

I’ve been reading photography books lately.  One is about capturing everyday moments, which is obviously something I’m interested in doing.  :)  It has assignments at the end of every chapter.  For example: Shoot only in black and white for a week to train your eye to see the luminosity (relative brightness) of your surroundings instead of just the colors.   Another assignment suggested photographing an object in the same location in your home throughout the day to see how the light changes from dawn until dusk.  This morning my son was playing in his room with only one window shade open, which was creating strong, natural directional lighting.  I grabbed my camera and watched him play for ten minutes.  Here are the results, in color and then black and white.
