Meeting House and Super Moon

Saturday (March 19, 2011) night at 10:10 Pacific Time, I posted this to Facebook:

I better go out to look at the moon while it’s this close.

I took my obsolete Kodak CX7330 camera to capture the historic event: the once-every-18-years (?) super moon.

Here’s my favorite of the resulting photos:

Fall Apples, Roadside

Yesterday morning, early, I rolled the garbage can out to the side of the road.

And decided to take a few early-morning, sun-rising fall photos. Of the maple trees. And the fog.

Then I looked west down the road.

And saw the fallen apples.

Fallen apples -- Hubbard
casting shadows near the bridge
blurred beauty
on Whiskey Hill Road’s shoulder
going to waste
fall apples, wasting away

I’m thankful I could see those apples at that time of day in that kind of lighting with that kind of background.

Above all, love God!
