Staying at the Observatory Until the Autumnal Equinox
There are all kinds of interesting things to observe and photograph near the equinox; she’s going to stay until then, to have everything ready!
She will be alone most of the time, and it will get quite cool before she comes home…
So she starts her small travel wardrobe with some warm things, in the navy of the night sky:
There’s laundry in the housing facility at the base of the tower, so she doesn’t need much at all for clothing; these 9 pieces will go a long way!
But she realizes that if she takes a few more shirts and sweaters, she won’t have to do laundry as often! So she turns to one of her favorite recent astronomy photographs for inspiration – bright pink and soft sky blue…
She’s looked at the sky enough to know that there are almost infinite shades of every color to be found; she isn’t fanatic about everything matching flawlessly anymore!
Wool gym shoes – how smart is that?
(they come in a really fun pink print…)
Now she has just enough choices to feel like variety, but not so much that she will struggle with luggage. She has quite enough photography equipment to load into her car as it is…
Wouldn’t this be delightful? A few weeks away from the world, looking at infinity?
p.s. Three years ago, I think I proved that ANYTHING can inspire a wardrobe; I started with the scarf worn by Tom Baker when he played Doctor Who!
