About Me

Angry and tired. And tired of being angry. Still in The Struggle.

ohheckyeah wants to play with one of my photos, and I invite you all to play, too!

ohheckyeah told me she wanted to try turning one of my color supermoon photos into a black and white image, a la Ansel Adams. I tried doing this myself and wasn't happy with the results - about as far from the sharp clarity of Adams' work as I could be, imo. Still, I'm entranced by the idea of someone interpreting my image in a different way. After all, all art is derivative, right?

So in the spirit of derivative art and using other images to inform our own styles, here's a little processing challenge: take any of my three images at the above link and manipulate them as you wish. If you want to try making them b&w, knock yourself out. If you think King Kong should be riding the moon, hey, that's your gig and you should try to make it happen. Whatever floats your boat, Kids (as long as you keep it safe for the kids).

For the record, here's my pitiful attempt at converting one of the moon shots to black and white. Looks mushy to me!

So I didn't know it was a supermoon until...

...I came in here to post my vacation "moonset at sunrise" shots!

My sweetie and I went to Crestone, CO, for our three-year anniversary. Took the dogs. They growled at something in the yard where we were staying (coyote or bear, most likely), and woke up my SO around sunrise. He looks out the window and wakes me to show me the big, fat moon. Naturally, I grabbed my camera and stood on the deck in my pjs, getting eaten alive by skeeters for 45 minutes to get the following shots - the best moon photos I've ever taken.
