A Great Backup Plan

When The Backup Plan Is Not Too Easy

When I go out to make a photo that I think may not work I always try and have a backup plan in place. Knowing that I have to post a photo a day means that I have to make my trips count. I usually have a backup photo in mind that is not so hard to make. When I went out to make my photo of the planets all aligned (see post here) I knew that there was a very good chance that it wouldn’t work. My backup plan was the photo above of the crescent moon over the Purdue clock tower. Normally this would be the hard photo and I would have a backup plan if it didn’t work. Of course it was so dark that I really had no other ideas in mind. When this photo actually worked out it was a huge relief as I had something in the can. When you wake up at 3 in the morning you really want to know that you got something out of it.

Back In A Familiar Spot

Every summer I seem to find myself on this parking garage many times for various reasons. It just seems like things line up best from here during those summer months. I usually end up on this roof for a few lightning photos as well, but that big storm has not come through on a night off yet. This is a great view of the clock tower, and even though I always say that I will make fewer photos of it every year I still end up coming back to it over and over.
