What does your future offer to you?
I noticed a lot of deviants captured the rare lunar event that happened last Sunday. I was delighted to ogle over all the creative and awe-inspiring exposures of the cosmic shadow play. I worked a long shift and missed witnessing totality but saw the waning part of the eclipse. A 'Super' moon is when the moon is closest to the Earth in its orbital path. It is on average 42,800 km closer to us at this point, hence looking somewhat larger. A lunar eclipse is when the moon is full (Earth between it and the Sun) and coincides with entering the node of the ecliptic path, therefore Earth's umbra is cast upon it's large moon. These two events happened at the same time, a relatively rare astronomic event. Rare in the terms of a human's lifespan, however very a common event in the history of the Earth's and Moon's gravitational dance. You can expect the next one in year 2033.
If I may feature some...
I am feeling bittersweet at this moment while my fingers press these keys. I feel as if I've let myself down. I haven't posted any new images in a week! I do however have a legitimate excuse for my only temporary absence. Just letting you know my artist friends that I have started college this Fall Quarter here in Seattle. I am finally on the path to becoming something I've always wanted to do. I want to explore the limits of human knowledge. I desire to look into the abyss of the final frontier and try my hand at astro-physics. As you might imagine this is going to take a lot of dedication from me, a lot of time. I needed a little time off from shooting to get into the routine, now I believe I've found the grooves and know I can still find time to shoot and make some art if I put my energy into it. It has been lingering inside of me wondering why it was being held back. Shooting pictures is something I find therapeutic, maybe its just releasing the energy I hold back inside in a creative matter that is soulful to me. I feel it gives life an extra depth otherwise overseen.
So I feel my life is on a new path that I will symbolize with starting on Sept 27th with the Total Eclipse of a Super Moon. Sequencing on the very eve of my college endeavors. I want to take this time to ask, does anyone else have this same eclipse symbolizing a new period for them? Let me know in the comments! I'd love to try to capture lunar and solar eclipses in the future as well as other astro-photography events. Blending my passion for the cosmos with my love for art. I've clearly been slightly obsessed with street photography and long to have more fun very soon as well as mixing my mediums up a little.
I appreciate all the support I've gotten!
I'm getting a new toy as well, once I get it I'll share.
If I may now feature some great photography I've discovered from my growing list of artists I watch here on dA!
