More shots from my moonlight adventure in late April, these featuring more of the street lights as the full moon rose over the neighborhood. It's a supernatural thing to behold, and I can see why man has been mystified by it as long as we've looked in the night sky, assigning mythology and science fiction to this heavenly body circling our world. Imagine it's power, majesty, and mystery prior to our earliest understanding of astronomy. These photos were mostly dark and pretty blurry, and would normally be discarded by even myself, but began to take on an interesting character as I played with them in my photo editor- like that of a pastel drawing. The moon almost becomes a character in the scene, lurking out from behind the tree line and lighting up the sky....

A couple more shots from my evening of experimentation photographing the moon, featuring that floating orb from my April post. Yes it's only the result of my inexperience in leaving the shutter open to long, and my primitive editing techniques left a lot of digital noise and artifact that a professional would find undesirable, but the results were fun! The blue sphere above the moon looks like some distant planet, adding an otherworldly feel to the scene that appeals to my sense of imagination...
...today I turned forty-two...

Digital photo, 2014
As with the last photo I posted, there was little in the way of post-production technique applied to this photo. I could buy better software and try to be a little more serious with my photography, but I enjoy the spontaneity of my lo-fi approach. I may or may not be a step up from Instagram, and worse am socially arcane in that I still do not own a smartphone. My twelve year-old niece has one. But I don't care- never let societal norms dictate your vision. Be an an individual and think for yourself.
