i got my camera back tonight.
it’s nearly impossible to see the stars in Portland. this isn’t due to smog or constant cloud-cover (contrary to common midwestern thought: no, it’s not always raining and overcast..), but rather due to light pollution. Portland was probably the brightest city I’ve ever lived in.. Lakeland, Michigan on the other hand isn’t necessarily the darkest homestead (Big Sur obviously takes the cake..).. but I’m still generally in a constant state of awe. i missed you guys.
