Good Friday

Litchfield, Connecticut

The Lourdes in Litchfield Shrine holds group Stations of the Cross processions around their quarter mile outdoor pathway every Good Friday. I've photographed the proceedings several times, including today. I was raised in a Catholic family but have been a non-believer since about age 14 (with strong tendencies from about 6) and religious ritual fascinates me. I made it the subject of my text/photographs thesis on a round-the-world college scholarship trip fifty years ago. I'm editing the take this afternoon and will put up more pictures in the coming days.

Moonrise Last Evening

Woodbury, Connecticut

I saw this after dinner last night, looking out the window over the kitchen sink. So I went out with a camera. I was a bit surprised to find that the capture retained lots of information on the ground as well as the delicate wisps of cloud in the sky, along with actual detail of the "seas" on the moon. The camera I've had for about a month now has much more exposure range than the one it replaces.
