Chasing the Light

April 9, 2004

I was ready, and so was the night sky.

I know it was a nerd thing to do, but I went onto the web and checked with the Navy to make sure the time was right.

I grabbed the tripod, backpack and yelled "I'm off to shoot the moon."

I drove around the lake hunting for the perfect place, and found it, of all places, on the asphalt of the Presbyterian Chapel parking lot.

Over the past hundred years, there have been over a thousand moonrises that might have been seen from this spot.

This, I think, was one of the best.
