An Ode to the Stars



"When you're feeling too big
Or too much, or too full,
The stars will come out
And they'll together they'll pull
Every piece of your heart
Back together, you'll see
You'll feel rather small,
But that's how you should be."

    1. Ahh, it's all a facade--my camera helps a bunch to bring out the stars I can't see! I leave it on a long exposure so the shutter stays open long enough to catch the light from the stars invisible to the human eye. But still, there are enough stars to swoon over near me! Someday I wanna go to Cherry Springs State Park in PA or some park in Utah, 'cause those two places are well known for having the most beautiful starry skies. Supposedly you can actually see the Milky Way!!

    1. Thank you! Absolutely, it's on mine too! Except I don't think I'd get much sleep; I'd be too busy photographing the night away and too excited about "LOOK AT THAT STAR. LOOK HOW BRIGHT IT IS. LOOK AT THE MILKY WAY MAN. THAT'S OUR UNIVERSE."

  4. Oh I love the stars so much I make sure to go look at them every night. I love photographing them too! It is quite beautiful where you are! The one of you two indoors is fantastic as well<3 At the camp I work at during the summer you can actually see the milky way and oh my it is so so amazing.

    I also love this quote by Van Gogh "I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream"

    1. Ohh, you lucky duck getting to go to a camp to see gorgeous stars! I can't imagine seeing anything but the stars I'm used to seeing; just the photos I take surprises me that there are so many stars I'm not seeing! And that quote is wonderful. <3

  5. oh you. such a genius with your camera. all of these frames are so stunning. may i ask for any tips on capturing the stars?
    also, i read in an above comment of the places you want to go to stargaze. yes. those are great, i want to go there too!!! but you might also want to consider adding the high plains of Kansas to that list. oh my goodness, girl: with the sky so open, far from town lights and nothing abstracting your view it is wow. whenever i'm out there i always make sure i go outside at night. seeing a concentrated band of stars across the sky means the milky way.
    i hope you get to see it someday! :)

    1. Dude, I just typed up a bunch of information and tips and it went on forever and ever so I think I'm gonna write out a post on how to photograph the stars! Look forward to it very soon, 'cause it's prime time for stargazing in the winter!

      Oh of course, any open fields that stretch for miles and miles would be marvelous for stargazing I'm sure! I can't believe you live so close to places where you can just about see the milky way, I am SO jealous. I only especially said those places in PA and UT because they're on the top of the list of places to go to stargaze, the darkest places in America--and supposedly you can even see "airglow," which is this tinted bit of sky at the horizon that you can rarely see!

  6. Oh this is such a sweet post! I would love to live somewhere where I could see more stars at night, you don't see many of them in the city. :)

    1. </3 Cities all needs art installations of little star-filled skies, like little transparent blankets covering each city with artificial specks of light.

      Or, like, at least "darkness days" or something where everyone turns off their lights to cut down on light pollution for a night. :)

  7. I don't think I need to explain my obsession with the stars to you, you already understand. I so wish I'd had a better look at the sky when I was in the mountains in Nepal :( I find it so amazing that the N Hemisphere sees the constellations upside down to how the S Hemisphere sees them...
    Let's go on an adventure to see the stars somewhere without light pollution. Oh wait, DISTANCE.

    1. Break my heart again, why don't you! If only we could have us a little road trip to go see the stars. ♥ I think I knew that in the back of my head that the constellations were upside down in comparison to the opposite hemispheres, but I forget--it's so weird to think about though!

  8. The photo of you is absolutely amazing and sensual and grounded and incredible.

Silkworm and I love hearing what other people think. In fact, it's probably our favorite thing, so don't be shy to leave us a note or ask a question!
