Sunday night proved to be almost perfect, with clear blue skies and only a moderate breeze. That’s important, because a strong wind can blow the camera around. When that happens, the ISS/Shuttle that should register as a line in a long exposure can sometimes look all wiggly. Not in this case. In order to minimize any vibrations, I also locked the mirror up using the custom functions of the camera. When the mirror flips up, it can introduce a tiny amount of vibration. It might not register if you were shooting a long exposure of a still life, for example. But when you are shooting a needle thing light trail from space craft, it will show up as a series of bends, or sawtooths, in the line.

…Thompson parents are worrying about the health, safety and educational equity of their children and repairing their school with duct tape [slams duct tape on table and points to sign in audience] that you won’t pay for with the $120,000. -Meg Moloney
But what stands out the most from this show is the raw emotion displayed by Ronnie. Ronnie playing is a full-body experience. If you are close enough, you can even hear him humming along with the notes of his solos.
You might think that since the top of this snowbank is dark, that it would absorb heat and speed the melting process. I think the reverse happens. Whereas sand spread lightly over a snowy sidewalk helps to melt it, sand and refused layered on top of a snowbank seems to insulate it.
