shoot the moon

i'm really liking shooting the moon right now. i guess cuz the challenge for me is to get a picture that looks the most like what i'm looking at at that moment in time. well, this didn't cuz the sky was actually still lit up (purple and pink hues). BUT, i purposely adjusted film speed to get something that only highlighted the moon. so for me, this was cool cuz i made it look dark outside when it really wasn't - the opposite of what i'm used to trying.
Exposure Time = 1/500 sec (Shutter Priority Mode)
ISO = 250
Aperture = f/5.6
Focal Length = 240mm (that's the max of my lens)

custom railing

well, it's taken some time, but we finally have the railing up! yeah, right! i guess this will hold us for the winter. at least it will keep Matrix from jumping off - he actually did this past weekend. oh, and yes, this was taken with the camera that was part of the massacre last week. but the lens is a loaner from a friend - thanks Joe!

we leave this week to go down to Fl so Nacho can hang with his P's and deep sea fish, and i can hang with my family. i called my sister yesterday cuz i remembered that i need a place to stay and they'd probably like a heads up that i'm coming - i'm sure there are parades to plan in my honor. it never fails to amaze me about where we are and how far we've come. that post could go on for pages. but suffice it to say that there was an ample amount of time (almost 10 years) where my sister and i didn't speak to one another. i mean, we'd be in the same room, right next to each other and not speak. i have so many friends that can't fathom how you can do that....and neither can i. and thanks once again to my awesome Nacho, that bridge was finally built and crossed and we have a great relationship now. when we do go home, she's the first to know and that's where i stay. i've watched us both move from being very cautious with one another, to finally being the sister we always wanted for one another. AND i get to see my favoritest nephew play soccer. HOW AWESOME IS THAT PEOPLE!!!

mom would be proud! i'm sure she is!
