Full Moon, Time to Howl!

Happy Friday the 13th! After a rather crazy week weather-wise, today was happily uneventful and I managed to be very productive the 4 hours I worked today! 4 hours of billing and dealing with reservations! Go me.

So, I think I definitely would like to invest in an honest to goodness tripod for my digital camera, especially when trying to take low-light pictures. One little shake and BOOM! Blurry as hell pictures…or worse. I also would love to get the newer high-end Nikon that can do videos and pictures…hell, I’d love the wireless feature so I wouldn’t have to keep taking my memory card out or connect it to a computer with cables. But, new cameras like that are super expensive! Super. It’s like the cost of 6-months worth of car insurance…give or take.

All photographs are mine. Don’t take without credit. Here’s a lovely picture of tonight’s full moon. Still a little blurry and grainy, but still fairly awesome. I took this with a makeshift tripod aka cookbooks stacked up with a crocheted beanie angling the camera for me. Whatever works, right?

And, the best picture of tonight? Full on backyard shot. I am not a great photographer by any means, but I discovered today that about 1 out of every 100 or so photographs turns out rather magical and awesome.

Wintry full moon night!

I was going through and showing everything on my camera to my grandfather and found some absolutely lovely photographs I had taken in 2016 that I didn’t even realize I had. Probably because I fail at looking at half of what I take until months (or years) later.

Speaking of bad low-light shots? Try on another full moon! This was the Super Moon from November of 2016. It was a crappy shot that turned out cool thanks to the lighting effects.

Here’s to spending the time to not just look through a viewfinder this year, but to actually see the value of what you’re taking.
