|These just might be the prettiest potholders in the world! Michaelanne made them for ME! Don't worry I won't be getting these little beauties dirty anytime soon. I'll just use them to brighten my kitchen for now. :)|
|I love the details-the yellow and red house, the teapot, the birdie...|
|Beautiful butterfly in flight-I'm standing on the deck pointing down for this shot.|
|Same here-oh, boy-I've got a mess under the deck which I should really fix up. Maybe~maybe not!|
My mom called me last evening and said, "Hey, did you see the moon tonight? This is the day that the moon is closest to the earth and you know how I love the moon! Can you try to get a picture of it?" I told her I'd try, but I've tried before without much success.
So-I decided to use trusty Google-what the heck did I do before Google?
Dear Google, how do you take pictures of the moon? I clicked on the first thing I saw which was this- www.tzplanet.com/words/how-to-photograph-the-moon/50 -got my camera (which is a nice point and shoot with great zoom-Mother's Day present last year-yay!) turned my settings to manual and did the best I could to set them correctly (I didn't know how to change my aperture). I rested my camera on the deck railing (I don't have a tripod), zoomed all the way out and tried to hold as steady as I could and got the moon in that little box as best I could. I was shocked and tickled pink that it actually worked. I picked out my crispest photo to edit, then cropped it and sharpened it a little.
And that's the story of how I shot the moon.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
