Friday Night Lights

Yeah, yeah, I know...original title, eh?

Well, in this case, it was true. These were taken last Friday at the local high school game.

At The Beach

Some pix taken at Capistrano Beach last weekend. Still getting used to the settings & playing around with the features on the camera.

More Moon

But no pesky Jupiter trying to upstage things this time!

I actually took this one a few months ago. If you expand it, the moon is a bit blurred; that'll teach me to use the tripod. I still like it though:

The moon sent me some nasty emails saying that, while the sunset pictures were very nice, it wanted some equal time. So, we set up a time on Friday night, got together & here's the result:

I was messing with the settings on the camera to see what I'd get. This first one came out with an unexpected, star-like halo. The little pinpoint of light to the right is Jupiter making a guest appearance:

The moon doing its "sun" impersonation, with Jupiter, again:

This next one looks better as a small picture; is severely blown out when you view it full-sized. It's Jupiter again &, if you look closely, you can see its moons. When I focused the camera, I could get a clear shot; as soon as I pressed the trigger, though, it got all wonky. I still think it's pretty good for a camera with a standard lens to pick up another planet's moons. Maybe someday I'll get a good telephoto attachment or some kind of set up to connect the camera to my telescope. Anyway, it's included here, warts & all:

Last but not least, the guest of honor:

Another favorite natural subject of mine is sunsets. Some are plain, average' others are simply stunning. They're all beautiful, though.

This first one was taken off my balcony back in June:

This next one was taken while at sea, on our first night on our cruise to Mexico back in April:

This last one is one of my favorites - the nuclear sunset; taken last March:

So, here it is - the inaugural post for my new photo blog; yet another in a long line of sites that I start & then life gets in the way &, well...

Anyway, I intend for this to be a visual representation of the life that goes on around me, rather than my witty, oh-so-funny verbal interpretation on my other site. As this site hopefully won't require too much thinking other than how to load the picture & center it properly, I might, just maybe, find myself posting more.

Or, I'll forget about the site & let it become a tumbleweed infested eyesore. Whatever.

First pic, weeds, taken somewhere up in the hills during my Death Hike. I likes to takes the pix of plants:

Here we have - more weeds. Mustard, to be exact. I took this at the old Air Force base I was stationed at:

Gee. More flowers. These are actually flowers, though, not weeds. Daisys, planted outside of my town's city hall:

Last up - not a plant, but a peach tree! In full bloom, no less! I took this photo earlier in the spring this year from the window of our apartment. The fuzzy effect was quite accidental; I took the picture through the screen part of the window, giving it a cool look:

So, there you have it; my initial foray into the world of photobloggery (don't I sound so cool?). Let me know what you think. If it looks like there's enough interest, I'll keep the pix coming.
