Playing With the Moon

That’s pretty much what I do. I play with the moon. I grab my camera and go looking for the moon. Then I try to get the perfect shot. When the mood is right, I run that thing through a digital art/photo-editing program and give it a little boost. Sometimes I leave it just as I shot it. Either way, I have fun playing. Here’s a little haiku to go with this one:

I chase phantom moons

Across empty parking lots.

Capturing bliss.

Good night, bird

Have you ever had an idea or a thought that kept you awake? As a creative person, I get lots of those. They’re the birds on the tree branch, right outside your bedroom window. Their chirping soon gives way to to screeching. All you can do is roll over, put the pillow over your head, and hope the moon lulls the birds to sleep.


Here comes the sun…


I really like art that depicts the sun and moon together. I did this by taking two different drawings and merging them together, then changing the color. After several days of dreary weather, we’ve had intermittent bouts of sun, as I like to describe it. This morning’s sunrise was spectacular! My cheap camera can’t take good pics of bright objects. (Either that, or I still haven’t figured out how to do make it do that.) Anyway, the sunrise inspired me to put this together.
