G.R. MoonShine

Dorothy Dorney's avatar Dorothy Dorney

GR MoonShine is symbolic of the associations we sometimes make when a full moon occurs: its beauty; its fullness; the allure of its glowing light; the mystery and magic all its own. We all have memories associated with phenomenal events during a full moon, some that seem to stick with us. It is for this reason that I super imposed a full moon into the composition to echo the phenomenon associated with a full moon. That one evening in Grand Rapids, an event occurred that was unforgettable, embedded in visual memory, tangible to the lore of a full moon. This moment was unfolding quickly, with the lens of an old smart phone I excitedly captured this event…the one where the Grand Rapids community stood together to make something so special happen, the massive lighting of lanterns, which may never occur again. GR MoonShine is a shared experience that we may all place in our hearts and tag in our memory.
