Beam me up, Scotty!

There is beauty in these pictures. Besides the obvious, there's beauty in the pictures because of what they invoke. The first one was taken Saturday evening (using time exposure) over a marina in Daytona Beach, Florida after Discovery's lift-off. The second picture was taken today after the shuttle had docked with the International Space Station. I could stare at both pictures all day - they take me back to when I was a kid and I'd wonder and imagine and create stories about what it must be like to travel to space and then I find myself wondering all those things now! If I only had $20 million.
