These past few days I have been shooting Project 365 shots that are not related at all. Here are some examples:

The clouds blew over so I decided to brave the cold and go back out for one last set of blue moon shots.
These are for my friend, Linwood. I think he would probably enjoy them.
According to popular definition, a blue moon is the second full moon in a month.
A full moon occurs every 29.5 days, and most years have 12. On average, an extra full moon in a month — a blue moon — occurs every 2.5 years. The last time there was a lunar double take was in May 2007. New Year’s Eve blue moons are rarer, occurring every 19 years. The last time was in 1990; the next one won’t come again until 2028.
I haven’t done a moon photo in a while and this one reminded me of the Rodgers and Hart class:
Blue Moon, you saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
I’ve been taking quite a few pictures of the moon lately and have posted some on flickr. Unfortunately, pictures of the moon get kinda old really quick, so I am just gonna bore everyone one last time with the latest one. I think it turned out really well.
For the photo curious only: I tried for about an hour to get a shot and was just getting big orange fuzzy blobs. My mistake was in thinking that the camera knew the exposure better than I would. (This is one of the few times this has happened) I was using every auto priority thingy that it had. Aperture, shutter speed, full auto, etc. I had looked at exposure settings of other pictures of the moon and they weren’t even close to what the camera was telling me, so I finally set it to full manual and dialed in what I wanted and it worked! For reference, it’s shot at ISO 1600, shutter speed was 1/160 and the aperture is f11.
