After seeing my shots of the moon, a few of you asked via comments or e-mail for tips on photographing it. I offer a few today at Blissfully Domestic. I had a really rotten night’s sleep, so I’m going to eat some dinner and head for bed. The moon was “new” just a few days […]
So. I’d considered it, and Colleen mentioned the possibility over at Sarcastic Mom’s place. Would you be interested in sharing stories (and/or reading stories) about honeymoons? If so, I would be happy to host. I love blog carnivals. 🙂 I have some lovely stories I could share. And, well, some that that I WOULDN’T share. […]
Tonight at 8:57 p.m. eastern daylight time, Atlanta, Georgia.
As you may know, there was a total lunar eclipse last night. Fox certainly knew. When Ed took him out to pee and to give me a Lunar Eclipse Update, he howled at the moon (Fox, not Ed). I love this one… The bright spot on the left is Saturn. The bright spot above the […]
I wish tonight’s lunar eclipse weren’t in the middle of the night — or that I didn’t have to work tomorrow. This is my favorite shot from the last total lunar eclipse (on Feb. 21, 2008). And this is my favorite artsy shot from that eclipse. I looked back at my whole post from that […]
Ed and I don’t have children. And all of my cousins are nearly grown. (The youngest will be 16 in March.) So, Christmas is suddenly a fairly understated affair for me and mine. But I do have one nephew, Francis. For better or for worse, I find myself getting him stuff I liked as a […]
Many, many moons ago (like in 7th grade), I took the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator for the first time. I was an ISFJ. In a nutshell, each letter means something. I=introvert S=sensing F=feeling J=judging Then, I was pretty much an OFF THE CHARTS introvert. I still get re-energized from being alone, rather than from being with […]
I have a new post up at Blissfully Domestic’s photo page. This post discusses the most important photo tip I know. Several of you mentioned interest in how I photograph the moon. Look over there for a post on that subject in the coming weeks. Anything else? I’m looking for ideas. Please?
This was a week of sunsets and moon shots. Wednesday night’s sunset. Thursday night’s sunset, taken from virtually the same spot. This was Friday’s sunset, taken at a local shopping center. The moon about 6:20 on Thursday night… This is the shot I was trying to post for Sky Watch Friday… when I ended up […]
We’ve had some REALLY pretty skies the last couple of days, and I’ve been taking photos. Not feeling otherwise inspired today — and having the aforementioned lovely sky photos — I decided I’d do Sky Watch Friday. Then the intermittent computer network problems we’ve been having the last week or so became… um… mittent again. […]
