Looking for happiness.

In all the wrong places. Well, almost. Last night was supposed to be the night that's supposed to be full of falling stars. Perseid Meteor Shower they call it. So Igor, my brother and I just wandered a bit away from the light and looked for some happiness falling down from the sky. But the moon was extremely bright and we were extremely too lazy to really leave the city and I was so extremely busy with my cam that I only saw two falling stars. My bro got luckier with six and Igor scored the medal with a grand total of eleven.

But when I got home and when I browsed through my blurry pics (I did something like that for the first time and it's really pain in the ass) I noticed two extra stars. And since pictures are not of really great quality, I just placed some squares around falling stars. I don't want you to miss your happiness. LOL

 

Oh... and this one is to blame. :)

It was a really lovely night here, but a bit too bright. Oh well..... there's always 2009, right? :)

That's the moon. We've got one them here too. But it's not nearly as nice as yours.

Well... that's the point of all that falling :)

Thanks for the post, Tomaz. Cool shots, even if they weren't what you were hoping for in quality. I can't tell you the last time I've witnessed a falling star.

Hope you're having a good Wedensday!

*Hug and a smooch*

Hey, Cory! Yes, pics are not spectacular, but it was fun! And... who knows... maybe some of the wishes will come true! :)

And my Wednesday (at work) is going to end in an hour and Friday is a holiday here, so it'a another long weekend. YAY for that!

Hope all is okay with you!

KISS

Growing up in Idaho I used to go out by the blackberry bush well away from the houses and spend hours watching the stars streak by listening to the planets. Living now in Everett I don't think that it would be the same. The lights of the city would just be to bright.

That is a great shot of the moon.

Stars... For me it's one of the most magnificent views. And sometimes, when I am not too firmly on my feet, it's also the most depressing.

This is chapter from one of my "short fiction stories":

There's nothing more majestic and more beautiful than night sky without the Moon and full of stars. And there's nothing that would be able to get me in a really deep depression and despair. I mean, I can sit at the window, look at the sky and enjoy like mad and then I can get so depressed in a moment that I am only able to cry. I never feel so tiny, worthless, pathetic, alone and lonely as I feel when I look at the night sky. A terrible feeling of total nothingness is echoing inside me and makes me feel so black I could be able to do something really bad then.
I just had to move away from the window once as I was feeling one of those dark moments coming my way and it felt like something was wrong with my room. Its corners started to soften, its walls seemed like getting lost inside them and all of a sudden the ceiling just got blown away into infinity. The floor ran away from my feet like mercury and I found myself immersed in the explosion of colours and sounds and I just took off. I turned into a single shining beam, left the demolition behind me and soared into the sky. I find it hard to explain what I had felt. I find it hard to describe what I had seen. You know, wherever that beam took me I just became something else. Things totally inconceivable to my present mind poured into my now inconceivable, but then totally self-evident, perception. I do not know exactly what I have seen or heard or felt, but when I landed back in my room, still echoing some weak blue-violet light, I was pretty sure that I was ready to do all it takes to relive what I'd just experienced. All.

Still, two is better than none. It was FAR too cloudy here last night to see anything, not that we usually can with the light pollution of the Boston metro area.

So, combined with those in pics, I have scored four, which is good! :)

And I guess we should escape to one of dark hills just out of the city, but we didn't feel like doing that at 1am in the middle of the week.

our skies fogged over so no falling stars for us. I've been wanting another "great" meteor shower like we had about 10 years ago. It was just incredible and once in a lifetime I fear. I remember at one point we were counting 10+ every few minutes... it was wild!

I only remember a 10+ night more than ten years ago. It was so strong. We were just lying on the blankets and staring at the sky offering us a magnificent show. :)

Oh hey!! I forgot about that meteor shower! Martyn and I were going to go up a local mountain to get a better view.
