SkyWatch #28

These are two of my favorite photos taken not too far from Denali National Park, Alaska. I love the clouds in both of these pictures.

Check out SkyWatch Friday for more photos of the sky.

SkyWatch Friday

It was cold last night (20F; cold for us in the deep south) when I took this, but luckily 5 or 6 Jack and Cokes helped with that. These were not photoshopped or anything, I just used different settings on my camera.

This will be a little more interesting than I planned for

I went to my first photography class last night, which I am pretty excited about. I've always been interested in photography, but I've never taken formal classes for it. Well, I did take Photo I during my second year in college and somehow got the film jammed in my dad's 35-year-old Minolta, got way behind in classwork and had to drop out halfway through. I don't really count that one.

I got to class a little more than 10 minutes early, but the class was already mostly full. I took a seat all the way in the back. I wanted to be near the front at least, but I guess people started getting there 30 minutes early or something.

I got to sit behind a flamingly gay, 18-year-old, self-proclaimed expert wedding photographer. He was dressed in a newsboy cap, patterned hoodie, Gap 1969 skinny-legged jeans and black/white Converse. His boxers were also from the Gap. How do I know? I spent half the class being distracted by smiley faced Jack'o lanterns, frowny faced Jack'o lanterns and upside down Jack'o lanterns.

I've already submitted my SkyWatch photo for the week, but I just took these and I'm so excited that I got the moon to show up as more than a bright, white ball. I don't want to wait until next Thursday to submit them, so I'm making this my own personal SkyWatch. And hopefully I'll have something better and different to post for next week.

I dig these fluffy clouds! At one point, they looked like mountains behind the trees, but you couldn't see that in the picture. So, I give you this one instead.

Umm...I believe you are mistaken

You can't really tell from the picture, but this is a refrigerator magnet. I know this because they were sent out around my town before the election. Note the edges starting to peel up. Why would anyone think this is a bumper sticker and why would you want to put it on your car anyway? I'm just confused. I took this picture last night, Jan. 5, 2009.

Here is the magnet that I got off of my refrigerator.

I wonder if this person glued it to the car to keep it in place. I can't imagine any other way it would stay on for so long with the edges peeling away like that. This makes me kind of sad.
