Moon shot

Jordan's Nana called last night to see if he could spend the day with us today. Not much was happening at school, and he needed a break. We said, of course, he could spend the day with us.

After coffee, he and I stepped outside to feed the chickens. Kodak LOVES Jordan and it only took a moment and they were off to the races in the field and on toward the barn.

I watched them until they were out of sight. I could hear Jordan giggling so I knew things were going well.

Standing there, each breath sent a pillar of vapor skyward. After one of the long exhales, I followed the vapor upward.

It was then I noticed a half-moon directly overhead. I wasn't sure if my phone would capture a decent picture, but I gave it a shot. 

The picture would have been better with the camera, but I read where the best camera in the world is the one you have with you. It's hard to disagree.


  1. That is a better shot than I have EVER achieved with my phone.
    I am glad (and unsurprised) that Jordan and Kodak have bonded.

  2. I'm reminded of a friend when someone asked how far he could see now that he was old. He answered, "I see the moon, how far is that?"
    Yep Jordan's uncle spoils him along with the pups.

    Birgit here...It's nice to look up in the sky and see something that catches your eye. You caught this perfectly in my humble opinion.

  4. Kodak must be some kind of Christmas angel.


  5. A boy and a puppy...the best combo ever! Love the moon shot and that beautiful blue sky. We had blue skies today but it was 7de. this morning...heating up to 30 by the afternoon with still blue skies. I can get by when Winter has a sunny day in it!

  6. That's a definite keeper, Rick.
