Guys. The universe is crazy. Like mega huge, stunning, blow your mind crazy. Like sometimes when I think too much about space and the stars and the galaxies and the universe my head starts to hurt crazy. When we were up in Buena Vista, we couldn’t get enough of the Colorado stars. Each night they came out big & bright – stretching forever and reaching so deeply. We got out out camera and let ourselves play around with the night sky.
Photography is a funny thing. It’s an attempt to tell the story of the moment so that other eyes can see and so that those there can remember more vividly. But how do you really caputre the feeling of the moment? The cool breeze that made us pull our hands up into our sweatshirts while we waited for the camera timer – the roar of the river breaking the silent echo of the night – dimly lit paths & the crunch of Chacos – gasps of awe when we would see a shooting star – the conversations about constellations, life, and deep space.
We tried to capture that moment, those stars. It was fun and while they are nothing in comparison to the real thing, they still tell a story and I’m still glad they are mine.
