Like days in a row.

I’m out of the gate with getting back to not only posting my daily taken photos daily but even blogging about them.

It was not a big number of photos today, maybe 8 taken, four tossed. My pick? The first one. When I went out side to wave bye to Cori going to school, the brightness of the big blue prairie sky caught my eye, but the moon was hanging vivid and high.

This one was not chosen, I was playing with the arrow end of the fake weather vane on our light post. Not only til I was editing and writing captions, that it reminded me of the old filmstrips my elementary teachers used, and that little pointer thing they could move to point out something in the frame.

Let grandpa have Wikipedia explain

The filmstrip is a form of still image instructional multimedia, once commonly used by educators in primary and secondary schools (K-12), overtaken at the end of the 1980s by newer and increasingly lower-cost full-motion videocassettes and later on by DVDs. From the 1940s to 1980s, filmstrips provided an easy and inexpensive alternative to 16 mm educational films, requiring very little storage space and being very quick to rewind for the next use. Filmstrips were large and durable, and rarely needed splicing. They are still used in some areas.

I should know better; moon photos almost never come out from the little lens in the iPhone like the way I see it. But I did anyhow, and still it’s nice colors.

It’s not about the quality of the photo it’s the experience.

Two down, infinity to go.
