Tuesday I started another face pot. I tried some new things with this one and it's another step on the face path. After working on this one for a while I decided that I need to make the pots larger so I can work on larger features to help refine them. Since I can't add clay to the outside of the pot and can't really touch the outside too much it limits my efforts when the features are too small. It's all a process. I like this little guy and am thinking about a lid for him. We'll see.
When I got home (way too late) I was struck by the sight of the almost full moon while walking into the house. I decided to snap a photo of it, but if I went into the house to get my tripod and back out again I would surely wake everyone so I backed up the wall of the garage and braced myself there. I took about thirty photos to get two that weren't blurry, but getting the two was all that mattered. This is an unaltered photo --it's exactly the way I framed it in the viewfinder when I took it. No pushing or cropping required. If you take a lot of photos some of them have to be keepers. It's the law of averages, and I always try to obey the law.
