Moonlight Adventure

You know the kind.  Those nights when you think you are cool and can search around the local church building for some eerie photo opportunities.  The moon is shining brightly at first and then it seeks cover behind a blanket of clouds.  You walk out to the cemetery behind the church, and then your nerves kick in, even though you are still on the paved road, but very alone.  Every nighttime sound is a horror waiting to happen.  Your pace quickens as you return to the parking lot for one more photo and then a quick escape to the familiarity and comfort of your vehicle.  Whew!  That was exciting!

Butterfly Swarm

There was a small swarm of Monarch butterflies in the community garden this afternoon.  They are migrating south to escape the cold weather.  There were so many that they often had to share the purple blossoms that they enjoy so much.  Photography is challenging, as they move so fast and the blossoms sway in the wind.  The reward is to capture just the right image to share with everyone.  Enjoy!

Besides having the most awesome lamps that hang from the ceiling, Chennai Cafe has great South Indian food.  When you walk in the door, the fragrant aromas hit you and you find yourself curious about the dining experience that awaits.  Their website explains things in the following way.

“Chennai cafe is an Indian restaurant that specializes on Authentic South Indian cuisines. We have unique dishes that you wouldn’t fine anywhere and is complimented by our extensive menu which covers most of the South Indian dishes.”

For lunch today, I enjoyed the Lamb Kurma, rice, Naan, and tea.  It was all wonderful, with just the right amount of spice.  And did I mention their beautiful lamps that are ripe for use with the Prisma App?
