“Irises” by Vincent Van Gogh was painted while the artist was a patient at an asylum in the south of France. It fetched a record US$101.2million at an auction in 1990 making it one of the most expensive paintings ever sold.
Now, now, I may be losing my marbles once in a while but I would never be able to paint even a rough caricature of these irises now blooming in my garden. So glad that there are these things called camera and photoshop that I can present them in any way I can …..
You are seeing the actual colour of the moon taken at 5pm today. It was still low in the horizon hence the lovely orange tint and I could just stay there and compose my shots with more different foregrounds but I think three is enough, besides it’s freezing cold out there at -1 degC.
Will try again tomorrow and still hope that the night will be as clear as today…..
Took this photo of the moon just half an hour ago. Did some research and voila! Will have to do moon-spotting for the next two evenings, hope it won’t be too cloudy by then….

I’ve created digiscrap for birthdays, congratulatory cards, birth/death announcements and all that but this is the first time I am doing one for an engagement. Well, H and I are so happy that our 40-year old niece is finally engaged!
Well done, Ruth, and congratulations on your engagement!
