June 17, 2012 – V.2 – Aurora Borealis

Skyheartphotography One Picture a Day Project

I took a picture of Aurora Borealis by accident and I didn’t even know it.  I have been wanting to photograph the Northern Light for a long time and last night I was photographing some very interesting and unusual cloud formation.  My eyes noticed some weird line in the sky so I took a picture of it.  When I put the image on my computer, I saw something that resembles Aurora Borealis but I didn’t believe it.  I definitely did not see the vibrant color shown in  the photograph.  I used the term “looked like Aurora Borealis”  Only until I saw the entry from Lake Superior Photography’s Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/#!/LakeSuperiorPhoto) whom said that he took some Northern Light photo last night at around 11:30 PM (same time I was taking that photo) that I believe that I finally took a picture of the Northern Light.  So, I decided to post June…

Window on Strathmore Avenue

I was out lookin’ for pictures this morning at 6. Just across the street from where I live, to the west and maybe 3 doors away, I came across two dogs in a bay window. One was a German shepherd; the other was all white, maybe a poodle. The all-white dog was goin’ bonkers. It was barking so loud and jumpin’ on and clawing at the window so hard that I thought a psychiatric unit was gonna show up, tranquilize the thing and stuff it into a straitjacket.
The wild white dog was gonna make for a great shot; and I was excited; but every time I got ready take the picture, the dog ran from the window and disappeared. I tried to take the shot several times; each time the damned dog vanished.
The shepherd was not excited and stood there motionless, looking out the window. I went ahead…
