Once In a Blue Moon

If I understand it correctly the term "Blue Moon" comes from the event when a full moon occurs two times in a single month. Well tonight December 31 the full moon has occurred once again in a month. The next time this occurs is 28 years from now, hence the term "Once in a Blue Moon."

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you have a great 2010 and get to take many great pictures!

New Orleans Abstract?

This shot was taken at sunset on Christmas Day in New Orleans. I was in my usual perch in Old Algiers on the west bank of the Mississippi looking across the river. I have decided there are a lot of big corner offices in that building!

Memories of Blogging

Taken from the Main Street crossing in Drexel, Missouri looking south along the Kansas City Southern mainline.

We watched a movie tonight called "Julie and Julia." I am sure most of you are familiar with it. It the true story about a woman named Julie Powell who as she is about to turn 30 is struggling with her life and desires and so at her husbands urging decides to write a blog about what she She decides to do a 365 day project to cook all 524 recipes in Julia Child's book Mastering the Art of French Cooking. I readily recommend this movie.

I had all but decided to give up this blog in favor of the new Young Photography blog, but in reality there is room for both. This one being my fun blog and the new one being more of my business blog. Speaking of business. It has been quite good lately. My daughters and future son-in-law Nathan have also helped in that they have become my "marketing department" and have designed business cards, a vehicle sign and even a t-shirt for Young Photography. Thanks guys!

So bottom line is 2009 was a sad year for Ozark Photos and this blog was sadly neglected. I propose that 2010 will be much better and recharged. But be sure and watch this blog as well as Young Photography for my work in 2010. I look forward to another wonderful year as a photographer. It seems strange to call myself that but yes I do finally feel comfortable saying that I am a photographer.

Let's make 2010 a great year for photos and I look forward to sharing the journey with you.
