It's Thursday and tomorrow is Good Friday, a statutory holiday in Canada. We are in a good mood knowing we have a 3 day long weekend so I went downtown to meet Mrs Skoot when I noticed
a bright, wide-eyed moon up in the sky. Orin (from Bellingham, WA) was in town to attend the Vancouver Auto Show and we had planned to meet for dinner, but first we had to have some decadent ice-cream
Orin "Skootin Old Skool"
We talked about this and that, took photos of each other and had a great meal at a very busy, popular Cambodian Restaurant where we had to wait an hour for a table. Soon we were finished and it was time to part ways
We may have arrived hungry but they had to roll us out, as you notice we nearly licked the plates clean. (I did take a few photos of our food but I leave it for Orin to make his blog post first)
I couldn't get that moon out of my mind, so when I arrived home, I dragged out my Camera, tripod and telephoto lens. Yes, the same Nikon 70-300mm zoom I used on the previous posts and tried to photograph the moon for you. It wasn't easy, I had to fiddle with the settings but eventually I ended up with something good enough to post
The Moon: Canon T2i, Nikon 70-300mm zoom, F8 1/125s at full zoom
