Day 217—Howling At The Waning Gibbous

When I went out to get the paper this morning about 5:45AM, the almost full moon surrounded by haze beckoned me and my camera so, out we went, my Nikon, my Cullmann, and me (in bathrobe and with a nod to Paul McCartney’s version of “We Three” on his newest album) to the driveway. Only two cars drove by and there were no neighbors in evidence. I really wasn’t howling, just mumbling to myself. I took one shot then set the camera to timed shutter release, forgetting it was set to take five shots in quick succession. I thought it was interesting that this, the first timed shot, was perfectly focused and the subsequent four shots were blurred because the camera had not completely settled down from the previous shot. So much to think about when you’re trying to get something in focus. Even a tripod doesn’t always solve the problem.
