Build complex toys and simple tools

The Olympus C-2100UZ was my first digital camera, way back in 2001. And, as my first digital, it was wow! -- 10X zoom lens. optical image stabilizer, and a whopping 2.1 megapixels. One of the first subjects I tried was the moon. After all, I had a lens equivalent to a 380mm lens on a 35mm camera and, with the image stabilizer, shooting the moon became a reality. I turned on spot metering to get the correct exposure and the result was a picture of the moon where you could actually identify some of the features. Wow, indeed.While I realized that astronomers and even amateurs with big telescopes could take better pictures of the moon, I could finally take pictures where the moon became one of the elements in the image.So here's a collection of some of my better moon shots. I've even included a moonlit scene from a long time ago.

2. Never link to a web page that is more interesting than yours.
