Starboy – A Sinful Sunday voyage

I bought a wide angled new lens to try and capture the ‘bigger picture’ to represent what I’m feeling at the moment. By chance, I turned the lens around and my world was focused in on one point. I made this gif with the resulting images.


We are made from the same thing as the stars – every element inside us was made when a star exploded – if that doesn’t make you want to reach out and grab your fellow humans and hold them close, I’m not sure what will. By focusing on the minute, I found my bigger picture this week.

‘Every atom in our bodies was formed not on Earth, but was created in the depths of space, through the epic lifecycle of the stars.’  Brian Cox

‘Every one of us is, in the cosmic perspective, precious. If a human disagrees with you, let him live. In a hundred billion galaxies, you will not find another.’  Carl Sagan

  1. We all need to do some reaching out. I can only hope more people start to feel that way so we can heal some of this hate


    1. I know – right? We’re only here for a tiny millisecond – and here’s the thing – you don’t run out of love! It’s one of the only infinite resources (I’m gonna make a give about that) 😀

    1. Thank you lovely Modesty – this is my first try – I adore gifs and always wanted to try and make one – I’m quite pleased with it and going to do more x x

  2. Not only a brilliant image, but important for us to consider the bigger picture this week as we start to cope with some frightening realities. Thanks for the reminder! x

    1. Thank you Jo – I’ve been a bit floored this week with everything – words eluded me. I’m glad I finally found something to say. I just can’t imagine living in a world where we don’t root for the weakest among us (but I fear we do). We are all made of the same things! Science innit?! 🙂 x x

    What a brilliant gif! Lovely smile in there, too!

    1. Lovely quote! And thank you about the gif – I’m so excited to finally make one – there’s amazing tutorials out there – this was made in Photoshop. I’ll be addicted to making them now…

  4. Love the gif…that’s so cool!!!
    how is the new lens working? I thought about getting one, but….
    Admiring your editing skills. Good stuff 🙂

  5. This is so beautiful. I love the effect you achieved with the inverted lens. Plus your words and the quotes were much needed balm for recent events.

  6. We are all made of the same, so why is this world full of hate 🙁

    I do love your image and gif though, wonderful effects.
