Moonlight Dinner

Trust me, this wasn't on purpose.  But, it looks like the theme of the week is "moonlight".  That's because of the wonderful full moon with clear skies that we are enjoying around here.  This shot is one of those shots that if I would have been two minutes sooner, I think it would have been spectacular.  I was actually driving away from the moon, but, as a photographer often does, I looked behind me to the side to see if there was anything to see. I saw the glow of the moon and new I had another nice full one.  I turned around and went down a sideroad to find a good foreground.  A big full moon is nice but its even nicer to have something in the foreground.  And that's when I saw the fine dining establishment in the shot.  Like I said, 2 minutes earlier and I probably would have had a moon lower in the sky which, I think, would have made it better. But, this is what I got.

Traveling by moonlight

One of the best/worst things about this time of year is the early nighttime sky.  In this case, it was nice since I was on my way home from work and saw the big orange moon in the sky lighting the way.

Got to be fashionable, even if sweaty

Been a looooong time since I last posted.  Life has just gotten in the way of shooting and posting for awhile. Hopefully, it'll get back to normal soon. In the meantime, I found some pics on a memory card from October that I forgot about.  They are shots of my daughter taking part in a volleyball league she was in this fall. I think she only joined because I wanted her to, but in the end I think she had fun and she played even better than I thought she could with her lack of experience. I must say, she was the most stylish player on the court and she was also the one that smiled the most.  Those points make her a winner in my book.
