When I see this short, brief video, that I’ve been slaving over for the past week, I realize that it fails to invoke the emotional connection between process and outcome. Ever since I went out on my first camping trip, I remember sitting by the campfire and spending countless hours with my head tilted up towards the heavens and counting the shooting stars that would pass overhead. Some were as small as a tiny glimpse or a flash of light, and some carried on for miles. I remember seeing a cloud formation that stretched from one horizon to the other. At this point in my life, I was unaware of what I was seeing and after learning that it was our own Galaxy, it really put things into perspective. Under the city lights within the concrete jungle where most of us are somewhat forced to be, views of the Milky Way are impossible to see. This video, along with all the other night shots that I’ve ever uploaded onto Flickr, hold no comparison to the ever present beauty that is always around us.
I hope you all enjoy and I thank you for reading, looking, supporting, commenting, and all of the above.
