Another travel moment

Years ago, on a road trip a friend roped me into getting a “reading” from Zoltar—if you’ve never seen one, that’s the entertainingly-creepy-looking animatronic fortune teller in a glass kiosk that pops up in oddball spots like mini-malls and gas stations—it was so delightful that the printout is still pinned to my fridge. On the way back from Utah yesterday, I happened upon another Zoltar, the whim struck, my latest divination is below. It was a wonderful weekend trip with many moments that give me wings; Zoltar seems to think big stuff is headed my way this month; what little I know for sure is that I’m incredibly grateful for so much good fortune.

Space pics

Terrestrial photography was feeling a little dull, I’m into space pics now. (Brancusi is of course an exception, in everything he touched he channeled other worlds, continued study.) The heavenly bods are positively gravitational, it’s delicious to muse on such hunks. This class of image is close to what we see in digital art these days—infinite space, gradients, spheres. Yet digital images don’t often muster gravity and magnetism. In a way digital simulations have too much freedom, the constraints of physics generate power, learning from simplicity and scale.
