"When the Sun and Moon Embrace" Self Portrait Photograph by PhenomenaLewis.
When I photographed When the Sun and Moon Embrace, I had no idea it would end up looking like this. In all honesty I was going to leave the original file in my archive, but for some reason I kept going back to it until I started playing around with it in post-production editing. I started to layer different cloud images around it and that's when I realized it started to look like two different parts of a day, the morning and night. It was similar to the line in my poem where I mentioned the sun and moon embracing, "...my brain, hoping to find that there is no rain - a place where the sun and moon embrace..."
All of the pieces in the Inner Dialogue series are titled from my poem.
This was photographed in my bedroom in Connecticut.
