Color Palette #115 :: Twilight
You ever do that thing where you take pictures, then forget to upload the pictures, so that once you finally get around to transferring said pictures off your camera, you’ve totally forgotten what it was you were doing or trying to accomplish with said pictures?
That’s this right here.
I think I was trying to capture a gorgeously huge full moon, but lacked the proper lens to zoom in and do it justice. Also, the patience to worry about composition. I’m sure my neighbor enjoys me taking lots of photos of his roof.
On the flip side, can we be impressed that I managed to get another low-light shot that’s in focus?? Not to brag or anything, but straight out of the camera, this photo was way darker than it looks here. I was super excited that, if nothing else, this is as clear as it is, given that the only available light was literally coming from the moon.
In other unrelated news, I broke down and bought the Epiphanie camera/laptop bag I’ve been lusting over for a year and a half, because I’m so attached to my laptop that I can’t stand to be parted from it for a few weeks (I recognize and accept this is mildly ridiculous, but I’ll be paying for internet access at the hotel whether I use it or not, so I figure I should use it). Review on the bag coming in September, once I’ve had a chance to break it in, but right now I can say I’m already impressed.
It’s also fifteen days till I leave and I haven’t accomplished a single thing on my travel to-do list, other than order a new bag. Preparing for a trip is a little exhausting sometimes; I figure if I start packing now, I might be done by the time I head off for the airport.
I have, however, received necessary packing supplies for The Palette Club and am waiting for the second round of test prints to arrive (I’m being very particular about them). And I’m making headway on the last few open projects I’ve got going on that I hope to finish before I go.
I’m calling this week a win.
What have you been up to?
