Ábalos Sleeps

During this visit to Spain, I wasn’t able to do as much creative photography as I would have liked. With all the great people, food, wine, and sights to see, I was more distracted than usual. I still managed to capture a few images that were more artistic. Here’s one taken at night in the little town of Ábalos, La Rioja, where I’ve had the pleasure to stay on many evenings.


Was nearly a full moon that evening and this town had gone to sleep. Not even a stray cat in sight. More about Spain on the way.

Moonset Aruba, video

As the sun was rising over the southeast tip of Aruba, the moon was setting. My intention was to make a video of the sunrise, but haze put a stop to that. Over my shoulder, I noticed the moon and decided to try out some techniques. Here’s how it looked. (Be sure to play it in 720HD for best viewing.)

Not bad. This was an opportunity to test out the limits and functions of the new Canon XF100 video camera that I brought with me to the island. It’s working well, providing higher quality video for my work here. Stay tuned here at the Bent Page and my YouTube channel, lenswork4, for many more videos from Aruba. Bon dia.

There And Back

It’s coming up on the 4oth Anniversary of the first human to walk on the moon. It must have been literally amazing to see that happen on television. Today, we take space travel as a sort of ho-hum event, unless there’s a tragedy. Otherwise, it’s just another day at the office. Nonetheless, space exploration remains a dangerous, and at the same time, adventurous business that attracts some of the greatest minds on planet earth. I salute these brave and intelligent souls. They have more guts and brains than me. It’s one thing to get there; something else entirely to get back.

If you’re interested in checking out the restored tapes of the first moonshot, go to: http://www.nasa.gov/home/index.html. They have a great website at NASA, full of info, photos, and videos. Check it out. You won’t be disappointed.
