A New Experience
When I began planning tonight’s blog post, it seemed like I should include a couple of stills from last night’s slideshow video. It’s a good thing that I did.
Do drop in, there’s plenty of room
I got home this evening, I discovered that the 8Gb SD card with all the
spectacular pix I took on the way back from the Jefferson State Blues
Society Sunday Jam, had quit working.
Fortunately, I have extra 4Gb SD cards that will work in the FZ35 and I took these nice clear moon images, tonight.
These moon shots
are amazing to me. I took them from my balcony, hand holding the
camera. I do not
have a steady hand, but I have learned how to keep relatively still with
my eye on the viewfinder and the camera up against my eyebrow. That,
combined with the optical stabilizer, helps me get long zoom, slow
shutter speed, clear shots, some of the time.
it is interesting that one can see a slew of faces on the moon when
pictures are this clear. Of course I can alway squint and blur my vision
to the point where I see the traditional ‘man in the moon’.
My trusty companion,
the inner cosmic voice, (intuition/collective consciousness/guardian
angel), showed me a 'sign' last week, when a 32Gb class 10 HCSD super
pooper SD card showed up on one of the sites I visit. The card was on sale for a low price I could afford. Thinking I
might need it one day, I ordered one. I love it when these magical
‘coincidences’ occur. It will arrive early this week, (perhaps tomorrow).
a moon picture from Saturday where a bird flew to the perfect spot to
make a balanced artistic composition. I spent an hour or two ‘playing’
with it to find the right look for a birthday card. I ended up with several versions, (concepts/treatments/variations on a theme).
I didn’t use this design for the card, but it goes well with tonight’s theme.
