Moon Lace (243/365)

“Moonlight is sculpture.” 

Nathaniel Hawthorne (American short-story Writer and Novelist, master of the allegorical and symbolic tale. One of the greatest fiction writers in American literature. 1804-1864)

TIME:  9:27 PM
PLACE:  The backyard
SUBJECT:  Leaves and moon

Once again, I left picture taking until the last minute.  I worked from 8:45am-1:45pm today, then made a quick stop at Target for some essentials (toilet paper!) and the grocery store.  Rushed home to put the cold stuff away then walked to school to register StellaDella for Daisy scouts at 3:00pm.  That meeting lasted until 4:30, then came back home to make dinner.  I sat down after dinner to catch my breath and the next thing I know, it’s 8:30pm (stupid internet).  And I have no picture.  DramaQueen suggested taking one of the moon.  I tried to do an artsy type shot.  I took quite a few and wasn’t happy with them.  I wanted the moon to be more defined.  HH yelled at suggested to me that I “use landscape mode”, so I tried again.  Still not what I wanted.  He played with the apeture and I tried a third time (with the neighbor’s dog barking at me).  Now it’s late, I’m tired and this is as good as it gets today.
