2013_05_25 Full Moon

Okay, doin' some more re-posting. I accidentally deleted this post as well from back on 26 May. The photos were taken by my wife Bettina on the night of the 25th. We use the 'Manual' setting on an inexpensive Canon PowerShot A590 set on 'Spot' metering so that it focuses only on the Moon. The details aren't too shabby and often times we'll get clear enough photos by hand holding the camera. Other times we use a tripod. Anyway, for those who had already seen these photos earlier in the week, here's a rerun :-)  Enjoy - Again!

These were all taken in sequence and he camera was hand-held

Okay, don't ask me how the heck we did this. All we did was take the photos and upload them, then when proof-reading the blog it turned out that we had somehow made a .gif image. I haven't a clue what setting the camera was on to be able to come up up with this one.

This too was an accidental .gif but there is far less movement

Marxville Diner - Red with Gray Roof

I wuz goofin' around, tryin' things out and accidentally deleted this post from two days ago. here it is again - OOPS! You'll notice the sign on top says 'ARXVILLE' and not 'MARXVILLE' - one of these years I'll have to find a replacement, but I'm in no big hurry.  Enjoy!

Shelly's Dance Graphics

My daughter is a big fan of the TV shows 'The Dance Scene' and 'Born To Dance' and has been making graphics based on the various dancers'  publicity photos. For her it's a nice way to pass some time and she's gotten some nice feedback from the stars themselves. Here's one example:

Kenner 1996 #28893 Batmobile

Here's the last of a set of four 'Batman Forever' licensed toys made by Kenner. Ya know, even though the movie may not have been all that memorable, the gadgets were waaaaay cool! I really do like the over-the-top look of this Batmobile. It just has a nostalgic comic book styling which appeals to me. Enjoy!
