Since I’ve been paying more attention to the details of my world, I’ve realized something else I’ve largely neglected, the moon. Once I began looking up, I realized the breathtaking beauty of the heavens. The moon, wrapped by clouds and adorned with stars, takes me on emotional journeys. I feel small, like a pebble on the longest beach. I feel alive, ready to take on the night. I feel silly, imagining I can pick the moon out of the sky and put it in my pocket.
As beautiful and vibrant as the moon and stars are, they are quite difficult to capture and share. I’ve spent many hours trying to get the perfect shot. The shot that will convey my journeys to others. But, a perfect shot is not necessary as we all have our own masterpiece just above us. So, I hope that as you take a look at my humble attempt to snap a moment of beauty below, I might inspire you to join me and look up.
These moon pictures were taken since August and are in Ohio and New Jersey. To get a better view, click on the photo. To view more of my shots, please visit my galleries.
