    Special moon this weekend

    On my drive home from work, the radio was discussing the full moon this weekend (May 5-6th specifically). On Saturday, the moon will be the closest it will be for more than a year and appear 16% larger and 30% brighter for North American audiences. Apparently, having a full moon during this close swing period (what the radio called it) is fairly uncommon and might provide some good pictures. My local weather forecast is for 100% cloud cover but thought someone else could take advantage of this.
    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.

    Partly cloudy here on Saturday. Hint, catching the moon at moonrise will make the moon appear even larger.

    Hmmm... I guess that explains why I was getting some hits from the last "supermoon" on my stock site. I'll have to strategize a little more for this one, if we'll have clear weather.

    We've had Tstorms here every day, but generally clearing at night. I'll be sharing it with a very special someone who's new in my life and interrested in photography too.
