Sky and Silhouettes

Posted by on August 30, 2011

I grew up in a place where the sky is the scenery.  The land stretches all the way to the horizon in every direction.

Maybe because of this, I have always felt comfortable with the barrenness of the sea.  It has always been more important to be able to see lots of sky than to see the land. I have had friends who felt exposed, vulnerable under such a huge sky.  They needed the closeness of trees or buildings around them to feel safe and hidden.  Maybe this is because the sky is so unpredictable, so changeable.  I feel claustrophobic when I can’t see enough of the sky.

These photos by Isac Goulart, celebrate the sky.

Like a Maxfield Parrish painting, these images capture the beauty and majesty of clouds dancing in the sunlight.

And when the sky is open and the sun is beaming photons all around – it makes me want to dance, so I do.
