The night sky…

… somewhere in the backwoods of New York state… Well, I mean… I know where I took the shot… But if I tell all you guys, then it’d just be a madhouse of cars with out-of-state plates… Garbage from impromptu barbecues strewn all about… … a whoopin’ and a hollerin’… The next thing you know there’s a Gov. LePettime through-way being built, and all kind of shenanigans… And then someone’s gotta go back for a boat-load of dimes…   The stated goal of beginning the journey of shooting deep sky objects is still the thing I wish to do… but you know that journey that begins with but a single step…?

Obsessing over the details, reliving the decisions that led you to this choice or that… Trying to figure out how to make it a more perfect expression of your inner self…
