Night Light

Lit by the light of the moon, textures look so much softer and yet, tactile. There's some sort of extra character given to things by the moon. Immeasurable, due to the absence of light, but flickering into being shapes and expressions from another part of our brain, as it assembles the unknown.

The stars twinkle and add a little movement to the scene. Looking at the sky through a telescope, or even binoculars, the movement of the night sky is almost dizzying. That subtle moving light, not as noticeable to the naked eye, plays with your mind, as well.

Turn on an artificial light, and it all disappears. The world seems solid, again. Still, you'll feel your eyes drifting skyward.
