Last night’s full moon. A slightly different take on the challenge for this week – got a crazy idea in my head that the moon would make a good history subject… Also missed the lunar eclipse this morning, had the wrong time zone so instead of getting up at four, I got up at five thirty. =(
Remember that digital photography class I was taking as an elective this year in school? My last day of school was Friday, so I’m officially free for the summer (couldn’t have asked for better weather, either!). I picked up a couple tips and tricks about the camera, but I actually learned the most stuff about the photography editing techniques that we learned and used for several assignments.
For the final assignment, we were supposed to make an online portfolio in blog form of at least ten of about best photos, preferably ones that had been taken during the course. I turned mine in a little early and got an A+, and my teacher used it as an example of what was “A” grade and an outstanding!

Black and White SS challenge! Shot in black and white. A ball of baby spiders in the half rotten stump by the porch. They’re yellow and black, but during the summer I never see any with that coloring, it’s weird. I think I’ve only seen one that looks like these do now. You’d think with so many clusters you’d see a few adult ones. Can spiders change colors?
Also shot in B&W. I really liked how the stem and the thorn looked lying against the woven wire with the gatepost behind. This one of the original rose bushes – from about 1880. Very pretty white flowers and a faint scent.
