Thursday 10th April, seeing now that the full moon this Monday night will be a full lunar eclipse, or a so called “blood moon”. I had no idea before I started. Hope it’s a clear night just past midnight.

two nights later, found an old vivitar doubler for the 500mm takumar so, crop factor plus makes it a 1400mm lens on the sony nex6 –  iso 400, ss 60, adjusted f stop f8. crazy, wasn’t even dark yet, used self timer on tripod.

hoping next several nights (full moon) are like these last couple, must have been higher 60’s and clear today.

man on the street

Sunday, September 4th, 2011

On a recent trip back to Southern Ohio, I met this fella on the street in a small and  very old river town named Gallipolis (in all probability where my French ancestors settled in far West Ohio circa 1790). Seeing my camera, he wanted me to take his picture, but didn’t understand that I couldn’t give him a copy right there on the spot. So I promised I’d publish it on my famous weblog (haha) and paid him a fin for the privilege. Didn’t catch his name, but for pushing a lawn mower around downtown in 98 degree heat, wearing 3 wristwatches, 2 pair of suspenders, and various other trinkets, crosses, and talismans, plus a necktie – he’s pretty hard to miss.

Hi Ho.
