New Moon (26/366)

New moon on a telephone wire, Albuquerque, NM, Jan. 2012
No time for photography today, and not much inspiration either. I grabbed this shot before getting in my car to drive home from internship, and instead of pulling out and setting up my tripod I just rested my camera and long lens on the hood of my car and hoped for a good shot. That's not "good photography practice," but I'll cut myself a break because a person can only do so much in a day.

I'm very tired this week. I'm wishing I didn't have to commute to and from Albuquerque twice a week, 2000 miles per month, 22,000 miles by the time internship is over in June. I wish I could move up there and live a more normal life... maybe because the past six weeks have brought water outages and crippling snowfall and a long Internet outage, maybe because it's winter and Magdalena's charms aren't so apparent, maybe because I'm just tired. I'll keep going because I know it's worth it, and because when I'm with my clients, in the moment, I feel energized. For now, that is enough. It has to be.

Sometimes you only have time for a quick shot. Nicely done.

Hang in there lovey. The commute may be a grind, and the Winter is only adding to it, but these too shall pass.

For a photo that you disparage, I really love it. Like the moon is peeking down on you and walking with you on the drive home.
