    I think if Mother Earth made a time capsule, she’d put this film in it.

    I enjoy the way the people are only seen in silhouette, it gives me the feeling that they could be all of us, it reminds me that we are all part of something beautiful

    Perhaps strangely, this incredibly beautiful moon rising had me thinking about the beauty of Earth from space–the earth we are destroying. Thank goodness we’ll be extinct before we colonize the moon.
