Heaston Visit - Little Rock AR
Posted: February 5
 
This past weekend I visited my good friends Bill and Jane Heaston in Little Rock AR.
 
It was a fantastic weekend filled with basketball, Super Bowl, old friends, new friends, many laughs and copious quantities of food.

This was also the first time I met Brecon, their one year old Corgi. Quite the people dog.
 
The photo above is of Little Rock's Central High School... a national landmark. This is the first school integrated in 1957. These students became known as the Little Rock Nine.
 

 
 
Blood Moon
Posted: January 25
 
We had a wonderful "Blood Moon" on January 20.
 
I had planned to go to Forest Park in order to get some foreground interest in the shot. As I came out of my front door and looked up in the sky, I realized that the moon was too high in the sky to get a shot with any foreground interest so I set up my tripod in my driveway. It was quite cold out but I was dressed for that. I was out there for about 45 minutes taking photos.
 
As you can see from the photo above, I am not very skilled at obtaining a sharp focus on celestial objects. If you follow this blog, last summer's Milky Way photos also highlighted this weakness as well.
