Orb night remembered

The adventure of orb photography with a thank you.


I’ve written a short tribute to my growing number of new friends that are hooked on orb image photography. Over the past three years, I’ve spent a bit too much time chasing a dream that could be considered a passion by many, an obsession by some.


Orb photography is my journey quest.


I’ve traveled two continents, three nations, and many states and regions; while photographing and speaking with countless participants and fans; as well as detractors of orb image photography.


I couldn't do what I do without the support of my wife and partner Nancy. For her, I am ever grateful. She was the one that opened my eyes to the true meaning of orb images. Thank you Nancy!


I believe, based on my personal experience, that orb imagery is quite possibly projected from the spirit realm; in the attempt by an intelligent source to communicate with the viewer. Orb images represent much more than a fascinating oddity. I have witnessed amazement and excitement, as well as comfort on the faces of folks exposed to the world of orb image photography.


Through practice, as well as a tune-up of my intuitive powers (we all have them) I’m able to call orbs to the camera. Granted, this takes a bit of time, as well as “believing in the possibility of all things possible.” In the past, when I've doubted the existance of orbs; they go away.


It's been said that pictures are worth a thousand words, I hold hundreds of high resolution orb photographs; captured under all light and weather conditions.


As I continue to share my journey through Hubpages, I look forward to receiving photo’s as well as best wishes and heartfelt stories from my readers and fellow writers.


Thank you.


Parks.




Orb night, orb bright, a wish I make, a wish I might.


Then darkness comes; a curtain drawn, a different world, until the dawn.


The sparrow swoops across the field, a barn owl’s hoot, as bat-wings shield.


In chase of mosquito, a dance across the sky of dusk, then falls upon the land a sudden hush;


of a not so silent night.


And then they come, the orbs of evening.


Slow to see, but soon we greet them.


Camera’s flash, words are traded, “over there! No, I think they've faded.”


Moments pass into hours go, as moonlight tints the evening show.


One hundred shots later, perhaps an hour or two, “don’t worry Nancy; I’m coming, a couple more will do!


Obsessive, I don’t think so, but then again, how would I know? As I turn to take that final shot, and dusk turns to darkness…


I believe it’s time to go.

      Thank you VioletSun. Yes, more often than not I must ask for ( thought) the orbs to appear. I'm directed to them intuitively. As to an answer to a question? I have received images in direct responce to questioning the welfare of a passed loved one. Also, advice as to important decision has been signalled by the appearence of bright colored orbs.

      The third blue photo is awesome! So many orbs. Have you ever communicated with them? Received messages? It never occurred to me that we can communicate with orbs until you wrote that you call them.

      Voted up and awesome!
