Ian’s new music and some of my new night photos were on display Saturday night at 98 Bottles. Robert Bush described the night perfectly, so I won’t bother to add anything. Click on a photo to go to the full gallery.

I followed the signs to the Old Jameson Distillery, where it was all made up until 1971.
The bar sat above the original supports for the stills.

At this point, I realized that I’d been out shooting for almost 6 hours and the sun was still in the same position. Wow, Northern latitudes.

Southern California got a perfect view of the lunar eclipse last month. With thousands of other people capturing this on camera, I knew I wanted to do something a bit different, and make the dark red moon part of a landscape.
