In Europe, there was a lunar eclipse recently, right during the moon rise. Called the "Blood moon," the eclipse would make for very dramatic photographs. It also happened during the golden hour, just before sunset. Chris used the app The Photographer's Ephemeris to know where the moon would be in the sky and when, and what lens to use to shoot it. Unfortunately, at the last minute the clouds rolled in and he lost it all.
Don't forget our current assignment - "Shoe". Take a photo of, about or otherwise concerning the concept of "shoe" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "shoe" as well! And if Chris likes it, it could end up on next month's photo contest review segment!
