Center of the universe

How could there be a center to what is always already centerless, boundless and beyond any concievable point of view?

Re: Center of the universe

I agree with your notion. I had heard this spot referred to in this manner before, and I suppose for some, it "feels" like the center of the universe, or should we say, the center of their universe. Anyway, hence the title of the photo. There's no doubt it's a special place for many people.

Re: Center of the universe

It is a great title for the pic. The Wave is obviously one of the most cosmic natural settings on Earth.
It looks like some giant did a pottery like lathe job on the place.
Is that sand down there front center?

Re: Center of the universe

That's sand, likely arriving there by combination of wind and water. Thanks for stopping by!
