Nightswimming



Nightswimming
Remembering that night
September's coming soon
I'm pining for the moon
And what if there were two
Side by side in orbit
Around the fairest sun?

(R.E.M. - Nightswimming)


The Mediterranean Sea.
September 2011.




The sun's setting behind the white buildings of a town called Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer in the Camargue region. The moon's rising above us, it's rising above the Mediterranean. There's hundreds of stars shining above us. Soon we'll drink the beers we brought.

We set up tripods and cameras. We're hoping to see a shooting star. None around. Doesn't matter. We've got some great pictures already. We're tired but there's nothing better than being tired after a long day of driving through one of Europe's most beautiful countries. Right now, we wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

Have a nice weekend.

- Dom
