“As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.”  Carl Jung

I reached back to November for this shot – taken on Treasure Island with San Francisco in the background.  I had one camera on the tripod, and the other in my hands that I was shooting back with.  I was a bit surprised when I saw the light trails in the road behind me.  I had set the shutter speed slow on purpose – looking for the motion blur.  The light trails are a bonus!



“It was a great surprise to me when I discovered that most of the ugliness I saw in others, was but a reflection of my own nature.” – Unknown

Tonight I am packing for a week-long trip to visit my Kids and Grandkids.  As I was busy to-ing and fro-ing I noticed my warped reflection in the living room windows and thus had to snap this picture.  It certainly is how I feel somedays!  I think this photo is a good reminder for me to always be “checking” for a warped perspective in any given situation . . . so easy to fall prey to old habits and experiences . . .

“From now on we live in a world where Man has walked on the Moon. It’s not a miracle.  We just decided to go.”  Tom Hanks

Gorgeous full moon several evenings in a row here . . . so I “captured” this moment with a long exposure thus the halo effect.
