238,900 Miles…

Houston… we have a photo-op. Earth’s moon (full), as seen from St. Louis, Missouri on April 25th 2013 at approximately 9:45 P.M. Or something like that.

Fly me to the moon…

Let me play among the stars…

Evening Blacktop

It’s been a while since my last Holga post, so I decided to rock another.

AND, dear readers, it’s time for an experiment… let’s see what happens to my stats if when I throw a random ‘twilight’ tag into this post. I mean, technically, it was ‘twilighty’ when I took this photo; I just didn’t happen to be attacked by any tween-aged vampires. I don’t think. Although… I’m fairly certain I used to have a reflection…

It’s toy camera time! This was shot with my 35mm Holga (at Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park). Sometimes it’s fun to go low-tech, and not worry about things like metering, f-stops, or… you know… looking in the same general direction your camera is pointed.

This was a long enough exposure that you can see the earth’s rotation in the moon and stars – which I thought was kinda’ neat. Of course, I was all hoped up on hot dogs and S’mores  at the time, so take that for what it’s worth, I guess.
