Cold Moon (3)

It was brisk, but not that cold for this “cold moon” outing. My mother was visiting my wife and I, so I invited her along. It was fun trying to explain pinhole photography to her. She pretended to be interested. And, she really was interested in seeing the resulting photo.

The sky is clear again this evening and I’d love to set out the camera again, with color film this time. The moon came up a bright orange, passing through some clouds. And, the sunrise the next morning was brilliant red. Really need this one in color, although I do like the black and white.

I have developed some leaks in my tin can camera which I need to fix. We’re taking my mother out to dinner this evening, so I may be able to set the camera out after dinner. The moon will be less bright of course, but the colors should be interesting.
