I’m still figuring out the ins and outs of night photography but I’m making good progress. Having multiple photographers in the house is helpful in this endeavor, though one of them keeps telling me, “just use your phone, it takes better photos”. I still love my Canon Rebel from 2009.

The photo above is looking west towards the city from our roof top. It’s a 30 second exposure courtesy of my tripod.

Now I just need to figure out how to take better photos of the night sky and the huge number of stars we can see here. Right now things are a little out of focus. I’m getting there.


I just realized that I never left the week’s obligatory cat photo. I know y’all were clamoring for it, so here it is.

This whole “seeing the sunrise” thing is kind of cool. Invigorating, really.
