“The moon stays bright when it doesn’t avoid the night.” — Rumi
I was just sitting there. I looked up. I saw a quarter moon and a bright, glowing star. Since I made this picture with a smartphone, the quarter moon turned round, And, the star wasn’t a star at all. It was the planet Venus. I know this because I Googled the words, “The moon tonight.”
This picture is all about technology. Except it isn’t. It’s about nature. it’s about dreams. It’s about myth. And, magic. Technology forced me to make an art statement rather than a documentary one. That’s better, I think.
Oh, that orange stuff. Those are trees swaying in the breeze. I thought the sky needed a little context.
What do you think?
