Just FYI, trying to shoot at night, with a flash, and get the moon in the shot? Way fucking harder than it looks. And sadly, because of the noise, I wasn’t able to make the moon bigger. I tried, but no.
That being said, I love how this came out. And yes, I wish I had a bathtub in my backyard too.

Spent my morning watching some Chase Jarvis video where he talks about needing to pay attention to the world to be a better photographer, actually a better anything, and that having wide interests and curiosities is what separates the good from the great. It made me want to find a few people and slap the living shit out of them with the video while shouting “SEE?!”
I have lost count of the number of times in my life where I was told to cut off bits of myself to conform and to narrow my interests and turn off my curiosity and it always felt wrong to me and I could never understand why those people were so hell bent on making me *smaller*. I still don’t understand it.
In fact, I fucking hate it.
But that’s neither here nor there.
Where was I going with this?
Anyway, that’s the state of my brain this morning. That and I need to fix a bank error and that’s got me freaked out. Good times.
Did I mention that I’m also really fucking tired?
I think I need a nap and a Valium. Or a Xanax.
