The Lunar Eclipse aka “Blood Moon"

This past week a large portion of the world got to share in an experience of witnessing a lunar eclipse.  It seemed like this time around that everyone was excited to see it.  In comparasion to previous year such events where only limited to a few “hardcore” people that would stay up and trek out to photograph it.  It was a rare thing.  But for this one, everyone it seemed stayed up past their normal bedtime.  My social media feeds was buzzing with updates and photos.  Oh the photos!  There were countless photos coming in every minute.  It was fun to watch.

The other thing about this event is that it was awesome to participate in a shared experience.  Rarely in landscape photography do we get to experience a large amount of people to experience the same event together.  Usually there is only a handful of people around.  With so many people taking part in staying up until midnight and photographing it only made the event more exciting.

Another thing that made this particular eclispe was that this is one of the first times that the San Diego weather cooperated for us to see it.  With the exception of a few clouds, we were able to see the event in its entirely without much distraction.  So that brought in a nice change.

The big thing that I took away from this experience is that such things are best done with family and friends.  Such events in my opinion bring people a lot more closely.  It is like going camping, where as you sit around a campfire you talk and share stories.  Photographing this event with my friends Garrett and Justin, it was  good time exchanging stories and sharing post via our smart phones.  What all this equates to is this; when an adventure present itself, call up some hardcore friends, and go do it.  Nothing more to it.  Half of the adventure is just hanging out and talking.  So get out there explore, and share with other the adventure.

The photo that I present here is what I would have like to see.  One reason that I didn’t get this view in real life was because this event happen during a week day which meant that I had work in the morning so driving far was out of the question for me.  But having the idea of where I would like to see it and using some of my photography skill sets allowed me to share my interoperation of the event.  And the result is what you see.  the lunar eclipse over my home city of San Diego.

I took the original moon photos in a park near my home.  Which is about 20 miles north of downtown San Diego.

Interesting story about maps! #geography   #cartography   #maps   #npr  
Two mapmakers made the place up. It wasn't real. Then, oddly, it popped into being. I am not making this up. It happened. Then it un-happened.
