As I stood in the darkness, adjusting my camera to take a shot of my neighbor’s tree with the street light illuminating the bare branches, a crackling sound behind me made me freeze in place. Then I heard a voice apologizing for startling me. It was another neighbor inquiring about my photography as he walked by with his two dogs. Shortly after he passed by, I ended my session. Not because I was outside in the dark and I was afraid, but because I was outside in the dark and it was freezing, or at least moving in that direction. This is a different sort of moon shot for me. Yes, that odd shaped light in the background is the waxing crescent moon. Here are two versions of the same shot, the second in black and white. I have wanted to photograph that tree in the orangey streetlight for a long time, but I think I like the B&W version better than the color version.
