The Weight of the Worlds

The space shuttle Endeavour flew over my head a few minutes ago. The children and I waited for it on the rooftop porch. Sam was hot and bored. “Mama, there’s an airplane,” he told me, pointing to a regular old plane flying over the Hollywood Hills. “Now I need to watch TV.” I made him wait.

I am feeling totally overwhelmed by the experience, so here are the six photos I took as it flew by.

These photos are full size and uncorrected. Click to enlarge.

P.S. Sam thought it was pretty damn cool.

    I was going to say it was pretty damn amazing, but now I feel redundant.
