So I guess, Utah it is... But, dude, there's just one thing. First you gotta swing by Washington state to pick me up. It's practically on the way XD

Actually, its cool man. Now that I think of it, I'd rather take my chances hitchhiking than ride with an ATS member


Admit it bro, you were thinking the same thing.... "Id rather have a random hitchhiker as a road trip companion than someone I met on ATS!"


And we at ATS always talk about how everyone needs to be awake like us....when really we all know what being awake really means. Being scarred for life in some way shape or form...but more likely multiple ways.

I know I sure as hell wouldnt ride in any car with the kind of people who would have someone like ME as a passenger!!

I dare you to live in a city with no lights on at night. It's a pipe dream. Violence and looting would be rampant.

If you want to see the night lights leave the bright lights of the city and live where it's peaceful and quiet...and safe.

Thanks for that....sort of makes a lot more sense that ancient men were so well educated in celestial matters.....
Looks like that, and the fire pit were all the entertainment they had in the evening...besides survival....

Yes I can imagine it, it was called the aftermath of Winter Storm Alfred when 99.9% of my state was dark for oh... 2 weeks or so...

It still exists. All you gotta do is get outta the city and away from the towns. Being out in the boonies may scare you to death, but it's where you gotta be if you want to see the milky way. I think it should be required. It would do people good to get some perspective.

The problem is that there's too much unnecessary light. For example, many shops insist on turning on their lights (whether lights inside the shop or neon lights) even though it's well into the night and the shop is closed. Why? The companies can pay LESS for electricity if they use MORE. That's completely ridiculous and Greenpeace has been trying to tell everyone, but nobody seems to listen.

Definitely hauntingly beautiful. Almost has a "Earth after people" mantra to every image. Thanks for the post!

Those pics remind me of the sky when I was young (early '60's) and we lived on the farm in far north east Texas. I used to lay out for hours in the summer, and for as long as I could stand it in the winter, to watch the sky. Hauntingly beautiful.

SnF for those memories!

Wow. Absolutely stunning. Thank you for posting that. I would love if we were able to, as a society, eliminate our electricity. Yeah it'd be challenging but, imagine seeing that every night.

I liken the absence of stars in a city to the removal of a person soul.

I did a thread on the biggest cover up I know of.

And this is it

By taking the stars out of our lives we have forgotten what we are.

Where our place in the cosmos is replaced by our place in the city

Where our sense of wonder is loat

We have forgotten .

Even outside the city . What you see is a pittance of what is.

a mountain top on Kauai taught me that.

Lol it's not either or. That I don't have time to dedicate hours upon hours of my time to make art freebies for random members on ats doesn't mean that I don't have the photoshop nous to actually do it.

i47.tinypic.com...



That took me all of 10 minutes, with a horrible skyline image(it's too close, I would have used a skyline with more distance but didn't have the time to cut out 100 buildings) and a pretty ordinary image of the milkyway

You can see how if I spent a large number of hours doing this, actually putting effort into perspective, scale, colouring and lighting, that my original statement would be verified

Anyone with a fair understanding of photoshop can blend together an image of the milkyway and a skyline. Thiery Cohen might be a good photographer but his photoshop skills are bog standard




Look at where the sky meets the hills, it's sloppy as hell and he probably spend an age doing each one!
