September 30, 2015

Today marks the end of 6 years of shooting the dailypic, 2191 consecutive days starting back on October 1, 2009. I just went through the year 6 set, and each year takes on a personality to me, this one feels like a 6th child. Kind of did what it wanted, gave me problems, but I was too tired to care. There is a closure each 30th of September. I feel the difference, I get a new energy, refocused, I like beginnings… and endings. To the viewer it might not seem different, but trust me, tomorrow starts something new. I find myself less likely to quit when the numbers are low, for whatever reason the days feel heavier when they are in the 300’s.

Thank you for looking. See you tomorrow.

A visitor outside the window. The family got nervous when I opened it for the photo.

The Blood Moon Eclipse
September 28, 2015

Here is my addition to the noise about the moon. You can not be known for taking a photo each day and not capture an event like this. Or so I was told by so many people. The amount of texts and messages last night asking me 1. how to shoot it, 2. where to shoot it and 3. when my photos will be up, were humbling. The moon is one of those secrets in the photography world, it seems like it would be hard to shoot, but (don’t tell anyone) it is not. As long as you have the right tools. With a long lens, a tripod, a timer/cable release and one quick change on the camera to spot meter you got yourself a decent moon shot. The thing is if you are missing one of those ingredients, it might be difficult. I am lucky to have all those things, so I am lucky to have these photos. And now I add them to the mass collection of other Super, Blood, Full, Red, Moon photos released in the last 24 hours. It may be an occurrence that only happens once every 24 years, but I am sure we documented it enough it could skip the next appearance and we would be fine.

Dan went to his first Tae Kwon Do competition today. He competed in breaking and assisted as a ref. Placed third in his event, by breaking 3 boards, elbow, punch and kick. Fun to watch, he had a great time.

Ran (walked briskly, maybe crawled at times) my second Rugged Maniac 5K today. I had great Rugged mates to help along the way. Beautiful weather, plenty of mud, water and fire, I am looking forward to next year already. I will be recruiting more friends and need to get the kids in on it too. Not easy to get this big guy over walls, but I survived. We were part of the Mudrats Team for WMRC First Class radio who has raised almost $20K for the Oliva Foundation.
