The visible reminder of invisible light.

"Every atom in your body is billions of years old. Hydrogen, the most common element in the universe and a major feature of your body, was produced in the big bang 13.7bn years ago. Heavier atoms such as carbon and oxygen were forged in stars between 7bn and 12bn years ago, and blasted across space when the stars exploded. Some of these explosions were so powerful that they also produced the elements heavier than iron, which stars can't construct. This means that the components of your body are truly ancient: you are stardust."



  1. Beautiful subject, photos and words. You are so good at recognising the beauty in things that so many people overlook.

  2. What a beautiful post! I love the last image and the idea that I am stardust x
