friday night lights – then and now

Last year, my son Peyton was a freshman in high school.  He was also in the marching band.  On September 7th, 2012 Jordan and myself attended the home game.  The band was awesome, our team won, it was exciting – BUT – there was another grand performance which took place – high above the game –

Can you see the emerging face?

 … the face emerging further & …

2012 football 3



Last night, the two P’s and I took a walk along Lily Lake down the road from where we live.  We were gifted with quite a performance.  It was as if two separate stories were being told simultaneously – the southern sky and the western sky.


due south


due south, we kept walking…


taken south shifting slightly west, kept walking…


slight south, more west, kept walking…


a few seconds after the previous photo was taken…


walking west – due west…


walking west, slight camera shift north…


walking back to the car, camera slightly shifted south…


walking back to the car, photo take a few minutes later due west, slight north…


kept walking, slight shift of focus to the south…


Peyton shot this photo – due west, as we were leaving.

What might we see next year?

      The sky does look like something so not like the sky it seems. So fascinating. xx

      Thank you. xx

      How is you son? I hope he is okay. I read about his anxiety issue in a comment you had written. xx

        Thanks for asking! His psychotic fears are increasing lately. We just went to see the psychiatrist… she suggested to add medication but my son doesn’t want to take more pills. He is also having IPEC therapy (something absolutely wonderful. Helped me too with all kinds of issues. Here is some info if you’re interested: ) but as he pays for that out of his own pocket he can’t have as many sessions as he would need…

    Wow, wow, wow, love this gallery. Beautiful captures! They all are so perfect! My favorite colors of the sunset are purples, and orange. 🙂

    • 18. words4jp  |  September 22, 2013 at 2:53 am

      I love the purples and pinks as well. They are breathtaking to behold;)

    The gallery of photos of the sky are breathtaking! Absolutely stunning!

    • 21. words4jp  |  September 22, 2013 at 2:52 am

      Thank you. They are quite pretty. The one’s from last year are what got me fixated on taking photos of the sky.

    These are achingly beautiful sunsets — amazing! Although the Face in the Sky is a bit eerie. Fascinating, but eerie: a very strong I-want-to-sculpt-Devil’s-Tower-in-my-mashed-potatoes type of eerie.

    • 26. words4jp  |  September 23, 2013 at 2:22 am

      I agree it is freaky!! Those three pics are so cool – when I took them I had no idea how they would turn out. I was quite amazed how they looked on my I-phone post ‘click’.
