The Third Planet

.

 

The universe is shaped exactly like the Earth,

if you go straight long enough you'll end up where you were.

Found.

I love the curve of the earth. Whenever I go home (which I'll be doing in just a few days!!!) I climb up to the summit of the mountain cradling my home, to this flat platform of cracked rock. When you lay down on it, turn sideways, and look just right, you can see the Earth curve at the horizon, just a giant orb puncuated with mountains, with us clinging to the sides, our heads always pointed towards space.

That's the feeling that inspired this photo. If you ever get the chance, do it, because I can't explain it, I can just show you a tiny portion of the feeling.

 

This is a GIANT, giant compilation of about twenty-five photos. It quite literally took my computer an hour, that's right, an hour, to piece these all together, then I had to do some warping, but I think I like it, for now.

 

Companion photo.

Do me a favor: view this large?? I promise you, it's pretty good.
