Most of the time, you won't find the story you're looking for. What materializes instead is usually much more interesting.
Whenever we look up, chances are there's something beautiful to see. I asked strangers on the Internet to show me what they saw in the sky and it blew me away how many people were ready to share. I put a call out on a Facebook group forum called The Rising Tide Society and Bunz Helping Zone. It was a simple request: for people to show me their photographs of the sky. The responses came back in a rush of rich colors, textures and experiences.
Originally, when I presented the question, I was interested in seeing how I could blend all the images together in a large collage, giving a sense of commonality of what we see in the sky. I got something completely different — something much better. I got a diverse view into people's experiences. Each image gave an intimate look into a moment in life. These are unique pieces of captured time that give stories of our human experience. I was absolutely amazed with the response, and as I write this, people are still sharing. When I first asked the question, I thought the sky would be the common element, but it was really in the moment someone looked up. The common element was a moment of curiosity. Thank you so much to everyone who shared.
Below are some of the many captivating images. Enjoy.
