Lunar Eclipse

We had a full lunar eclipse in Tokyo, and the sky stayed clear long enough for me to photograph it. I took over one hundred photos, but I thought I'd share just five highlights.

I'm still working on learning how to photograph the moon, so don't flame me. :)


This was the exact minute of the full eclipse.

Wall Art Pt.1

We like our house, but the walls have gotten rather dirty right around little kid height, if you know what I mean. I'm kind of a clean freak, but I've learned to live with a certain level of mess, because there's just no way to have a perfectly tidy house with six kids (half of them being teenagers, half being little).

People are more important than stuff.

So my wife and I thought we'd just wait a few more years until the little ones were old enough to not run around smearing their grubby paws across the white walls, and then we'd repaint the walls. But a friend of ours, who just happens to be an artist, decided to do something different. He decided to take those crayon and pen scribbles on the walls and turn them into wall art! There was one particular section of wall that had a long zig-zag scribble on it. Our friend looked at it and said to the girls, "You know what that is? That's a dragon's tail."

The girls were hooked. They just sat and watched him transform a dirty, scribbled wall, into a work of art. Check out the transformation!

Whaaa! What's up with that head?

Look at the door! Yeah, our kids are wild.

I'll update here when the castle is finished!

Until next time, live...and love!
