Ursa Major

Ursa Major

One night in 2002, I took an evening walk outside with my dog, Rags, and I stopped to contemplate The Big Dipper. I thought about all the different names it gets from different countries. In Sweden, for example, it is called The Wagon. In Britain it is called The Plough. Here it is referred to as Ursa Major {Big Bear} or The Big Dipper. Two hours after my dog walk, I felt the presence of orbs and sensed a photo op. I took my first shot of the night and happily screamed out loud at what appeared in the LCD screen. The orbs had placed themselves in such a way that they actually formed a replica of Ursa Major. Garth has made prints of this and one of these prints is matted and framed and in every photo exhibit I present to the public.

A billion stars go spinning through the night,
Blazing high above your head,
But in you is the presence that will be,
When all the stars are dead.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke
