Night Lights

My last trip out to California to photograph weddings has come to an end... Safely back in New York to photograph the wedding of a very dear friend of mine! In about a week I'll be boarding a flight back out to the San Francisco area to photograph a couple multicultural wedding celebrations and a styled shoot in Sonoma! Needless to say... I'm looking forward to photographing out on the West Coast again soon! 

On my last flight back to Syracuse, I took a few photos of the city and airport lights from my plane window. I photographed them in such a way that they'd simply become out of focus, colorful little dots. I find them so beautiful!

I jotted down a little free verse poem that was inspired within me as I marveled at the magnificence of the twinkling lights...... 

 

The land

Seen from the sky

Sleepy eyes have closed

Another day has gone

 

Galaxies of city lights and sparkling stars

Sprawled out carefully

Within nearly infinite darkness

 

Looking up...

The magnitude and wonder

Overwhelms the understanding within me

 

Looking down...

Twinkling souls

Fast asleep, stresses have melted, books read, babies fed

 

Another morning dawns in the blink of an eye

Galaxies of beautiful souls

Galaxies of beautiful stars

 

We're but twinkles in an endless night sky
