Tide Pull: Sun + Moon

Beginning in 2006 perched from a house on Lake Pontchartrain, I photographed the sun and moon. Feeling connected, there's the comfort in knowing people everywhere rely on the same sun and moon for light and tide. 

The rise and fall of water or tide is pulled by gravitational forces of the sun and moon. While the moon goes from new, to full and back, the sun rotates 390 miles away, giving it 46 percent tide-generating forces of the moon. 

In viewing the prints all together, salon-style, there's a meditative aspect that feels both dreamy and solid.
