LUNAR ECLIPSE











A beautiful copper moon on Dec 10, 2011.





It's not only iza's first time in watching the lunar eclipse, also mine. Iza was so happy to stay outside in the coldness with us till midnight.
Never ever did i have such a conscious feel on the depth of darkness of the sky. The moon was no longer a reflective disc against a dark background but a sphere suspended in the "emptiness" ... Maybe it's the visible details on the dimmed moon shaped the volume of the space ... the conceptual model of the space became something "tangible" ...






Eclipse pictures were taken by papa ziggy.
