New planets waiting to be released, organize themselves strictly into specific Flight Patterns…. whereby the distance to each adjacent planetoid is geometrically proportional to their mass and inversely proportionally to their diameter. When the hangar doors are finally opened they disperse to the very edges of the universe at the speed of light in desperate pursuit of solitude.

For Sass because her wings were getting tired.

    They’re so luminous, beautiful eye-catching work Rhoufi

  • At 1:26AM – I thought I could sneak in, slap my tags on the wall and disappear without anyone noticing… but no… GH was standing under a street light watching. Thank you ma’am… ssssshhhh! ;-)

    I have profound respect for these planets : tutored to specific grouping, in your world they choose solitude [ desperately]!
    Stunning photography, as always, Rhoufi!

  • I have just returned from a world where everything repels everything else… thank heavens (!) in your real world they attract. I need to orbit a few people very soon… your world looks pretty welcoming ;-)))) Thanks heaps :-)

    Up where we belong!! We have lift off…And wow…what a view it is……
    This is so very beautiful…Thank you, thank you, Rhoufi
    And it feels like this: intent, insight,,,,height….night…flight…..shadow/light…rhythm/pausing/rhythm…breathe….
    Swooooosh… banking,… here….sharp shiny eye….catching….the gleam of …a new dawn..wings…beating toward a new day…
    Sweet flight, my friend

  • That’s the idea, that feeling of weightlessness, souls released from their tethers rising, breaking loose, scorn gravity. You got it Sass :-) Just need a bit more height and then… gliding might be possible again. Thanks again for the push :-)

    Beautiful work!

  • Hi Berns, thank you, I’ve been off the air for a while, so I need to visit you, but it’s too late. Hope you well and haven’t been arrested in the riots while I’ve been away. See you soon ;-)

    VERY cool! “desperate pursuit of solitude”….something we’ve all sought at one time or another

  • Thanks Michael – my solo photowalks are still a way of finding it ;-)
