The Jellyfish in the Sea

leave a comment »

Last summer was all about the underwater camera. My mother and I both have one, and we wound up at Morton one day, dueling to see who could get the best shot of the jellyfish that were floating in the bay. This was probably my best shot from that day — it’s harder than you might think to focus a camera underwater on a subject that just kind of drifts around with the tide, all while trying not to get stung by its floating brethren.

The Moon Before the Eclipse

The Moon Before the Eclipse

Before the last lunar eclipse, I went out and got my camera and tripod all set up so when it actually happened, I’d be ready for the perfect shot. Of course, the best laid plans of mice and men… Two hours later, clouds ruined all that preparation. I went out every few minutes, hoping that all the cloud cover would give way, but to no avail. The only thing I succeeded in that night was in annoying my housemates with the banging of the screen door.

Sunset Over the Marshes

leave a comment »

Poets and artists always rave about the quality of light on the East End, and, having lived here for most of my life, I would have to agree. My favorite time of day is usually late afternoon, but waiting for the fireworks on the fourth of July down at the Beach Lane bridge, this sunset almost convinced me of early evening’s endearing qualities.
