that's about the best least lousy shot i got all evening. it was hard to get a clean picture with all the light pollution. i had to hold a piece of cardboard below the lens to block out the glare from the street lights. only if i could block out the rest of the city.
and that's the very last shot i took before i folded up the tripod. the moon turned bright orange before it went out of sight. the spectacle continues tonight. nice way to start a new month.
those are letters i cut free hand yesterday while trying to make christmas cards. i got inspired by april and max, who made their own last year. i thought i'd one up by using only recycled materials.
i thought about spelling holidays but it would require twice as many letters as xmas. i wanted to make five cards but i ran out of steam after three. mostly i got fed up with hunting for letters to clip.
ready to mail
i just realized that i hadn't signed any of the cards. i must remember to do that before sending them out.
that's al and that's chuck. i like the idea of putting these guys on a christmas tree. it's sort of like putting newton's tomb in westminster abbey. incidently, chuck happens to be "a few feet away from" isaac. i don't remember seeing his set up at all when i was there.
i took that picture last night at jg's office. he went to take the leed certification exam saturday. in a snap, he passed. i guess some of us are simply smarter than others. by others i mean me.
that's me and one of my very good friends from high school. she was in town for business yesterday so jg and i met her for dinner. the weather was terrible but we enjoyed our evening out. it's always nice to see an old friend.
