It’s there. Every night. Interacting with the landscape, shining some sort of glow… And the research about what we understand about the moon is still changing: it might be 200 million years younger than we thought. That’s three times as long as the last dinosaur. No small potatoes.
And we’ve all dreamed about interacting with it. Perhaps George Bailey said it best, “What is it you want, Mary? What do you want? You want the moon? Just say the word and I’ll throw a lasso around it and pull it down. Hey. That’s a pretty good idea. I’ll give you the moon, Mary. Well, then you can swallow it, and it’ll all dissolve, see… and the moonbeams would shoot out of your fingers and your toes and the ends of your hair… am I talking too much?”
Photographer Lauren Lavender has tried to capture that experience. You get it.
