Last night was the ‘Super Moon’.
“The biggest and brightest full moon of the year arrived Saturday night as our celestial neighbor passed closer to Earth than usual.”
So, since I’ve always been a bit of a nerd where astronomy is concerned, I sat in my yard at roughly 10:00 p.m., playing with my camera settings while pointing the lens at the moon. The moon was supposed to “peak” at 10:34, so I was outside for the best of it.
My camera is not set up for photography such as this, but I opened my lens up nice and wide, with long exposures, and got some fun, albeit amateurish, shots.
I love the star effect of this one:
I only have 30 shots similar to these, but I don’t think I’ll bore you with them.
I am now on Instagram. IT IS GOING TO BE ADDICTING.
The Hub-O took the picture of the moth. I like it.
It’s getting hot here. Boo. However, Tater has been playing outside a lot and it’s been so fun watching him have run and play.
Spud and I have officially begun our Summer Reading Program. I started this a little “program” a few summers back in which I pay Spud to read books. It has been working out well, and I was excited to do it again this year. I have been keeping a record of the books he reads and how much money he earns….I may post that.
My Spudman is a bookworm, and it makes me so proud.
Anything else? Nope.
There was zero point to this. I just wanted to blog.Tweet
