Moon shot from Skid Row
The sky looked inviting this evening when I was walking down the street.
The clouds were moving rapidly across the sky.
I wandered to the roof of my building to see if there were any interesting shots.
Looking toward the south, a grey canopy of clouds was sailing west to east across the heavenly airscape. There was nothing to the west worth seeing and in the north,our City Hall stood as majestically as it always does.
I figured there was nothing special in the sky until, while turning east, my eyes landed on the moon. I thought it was a beautiful shot. I ran downstairs, grabbed my camcorder leaped the stairs to the roof entrance. I have learned that shots like this can change within a minute.
I have taken alot of pictures during the last few months but I really wanted to share this one with the people of cyberspace who read my blog. Thank you for reading it.
At first glance, this photo seems like any other picture. However, the longer you look at it, the more the shape of it changes. The depth changes as well as the texture of the surface. It talks to you. Enjoy it.
The Skid Row 3 on 3 Street Basketball League will be honored on February 29, Leap Year Day, at City Hall Chambers. The ceremonies were postponed out of respect for the Officer Simmons. Officer Simmons would be proud of the work that the League was doing in Skid Row.
