One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2015—Cassiopeia

My nephew Michael, who gazes at stars through telescopes, not camera lenses, has annotated the photograph of the night sky that I posted earlier today. In case you were wondering what I was focused on, Cassiopeia is smack dab in the center…not that I knew it at the time. The only constellations that I recognize are the Big Dipper and Orion. I was at Blue Bird Camp at age 8 years old when I remember first hearing of the constellation Cassiopeia which was pointed out to me and I was told she was sitting in her chair. I could never find it again.

It’s kind of fun to see a map of the stars superimposed on my own photo. It makes me want to go out and do some more night photography. We have so much light pollution around my house, though, that even the new Lightroom Dehazing slider couldn’t help.
