My NYC pal, BL Ochman, twittered late last evening that the moon was beautiful, so I grabbed my Pentax Lumix camera and headed for the back yard. Gorgeous. I struggled to get a good picture, and failed, even when I used my tripod. Not to worry, I’m going to set up my Canon digital SLR so I can try again tonight.
Little did I know that earlier that same evening, just a few miles away, my brother, David Crook, was in the parking lot of Big Lots when he spotted the magnificent sunset. He grabbed his Pentax and got a few good shots. Granted, sunsets look their best with some kind of landmarks involved, but in this case, they would have detracted from the splendor in the sky. Here’s what I think is the best of the “lot.”
