Genie Finally Shot the Moon!

 This was our view of the sky as we walked across the parking to Whole Foods in Charlottesville, Virginia, to do our grocery shopping. 

Now, just look at what we saw walking out the door after a wonderful supper. I could not believe my eyes. It was the moon,and it was a big moon, and I had my camera. Hip-Hip Hooray! I was one euphoric old lady. Thank goodness I had my Canon Rebel with me. Before Buddy could say “Calm Down, Dear,” I was out there in the parking lot clicking away. I cannot believe the pictures even came out because it my first solo try at shooting the moon. I have no idea if this is a good shot or a not so good one, but since it  is my FIRST one I think it is superb!  I am such a happy camper.

A country so rich that it can send people to the moon still has hundreds of thousands of its citizens who can’t read. That’s terribly troubling to me.”

  1. Love the evening sky and really like your "mysterious moon" shot. Gee, that would make a great cover for a mystery story. Good job Genie.

  2. I love the moon peeking through the trees. What a beautiful find!

  3. Creat night shots, Genie. I'm jealous!

  4. Good for you! Go tear up that half marathon!

  5. Lovely evening colours in that sky.
