Tis’ the Season
It’s that time of year again, where everyone is in a rush, and the stress levels are high, even though it is supposed to be the season of giving and caring. I guess I never understood the stress part of it, or why people find themselves to be of more importance than the next person. To top it, I think that the whole “Black Friday” and “Doorbuster” thing really adds to the problem. I wonder if parents brag to their children about what they went through to get them there this year’s gifts.
“I had to trample 2 old ladies to get you that *insert this year’s hot toy*…you should be grateful”.
It seems that most people are trying to satisfy themselves rather than the needs of those they are actually buying gifts for.
The whole thing makes me feel a little ill to think about.
Tis’ the season indeed.

Sodium Burns (and UFOs)
The photo above was not exactly what I was looking for, it was a bit of an accident. The “UFOs” were caused by the reflection of sodium lights just below the three peaks at the bottom of the photo. I was mainly trying to get a decent shot of the steeple with the crescent moon in the background, but as luck would have it, this one wound up coming out the best exposure and clarity-wise…so here it is.
Of Darkness and Light…
…in full moon’s light.
A long exposure taken during a full moon in order to simulate daylight. The photo was originally taken for a JPG Magazine photo contest called “Dreamscapes”.
I am not sure what the ship’s name is in reference to, but most ships at this particualar port are of Norwegian origin. Most are still active, though, due to recent regulations, there are quite a few vessels that are sitting here, rusting away. I am also told that one of the neighboring ships to the Zibet was recently part of a show on the Discovery Channel called “Deadliest Catch”, though I can’t seem to find which ship it was.
