new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

i was fiddling around with my remote live view on the 40D again last night -- it was a full moon, after all, and i do have a tradition of photographing the full moon. i mounted my little white onto the 40D, set it on the tripod on the balcony and connected it to my computer with two USB extensions.

you can really see the moon move on the EOS utility magnification window... and i got this idea for something a little different.

the offspring suggested i make some moon candy:

  1. Very nice.

    I had never tried shooting the moon before. This week I was away at a cabin, not able to read your blog, trying to photograph the same moon with the kit lens. More coincidences.
