Stars And The Moon

The thick-as-thieves brothers were up to something, but Hu-Dad was surprised to discover the stars and the moon were aligned.

Why are you two on the upper deck?
Why are you two on the upper deck?

We are only on the upper floor of the house at night because that’s where the bedrooms are. The upper deck isn’t covered, so it can be quite warm in the afternoon. So Hu-Dad was a little surprised to discover our dynamic duo had slipped to the upper landing earlier than expected. What were they up to?

Do these two look like they would cause mischief?

To be honest, they never did explain what they were up to. But do you see that moon in the shot above? And the red horizon from the sunset? Put those together, change a few settings on the camera, and you get a different image. This proves the moon and the stars really do align sometimes, even if it is over a couple of delinquents.

Delinquents? Ha! We look quite majestic!
Delinquents? Ha! We look quite majestic!

P.S. – Yes, for you photography buffs, these two images were taken just seconds apart. Cameras are quite amazing how simple aperture and shutter speed settings can change everything you see. And, yes, it helps to have a couple of cute models fixated on what’s happening at the neighbors. – Hu-Dad
