    Mom's Moon

    There is nothing special about this image other than it was taken today on Mom's 100th birthday. I just talked to her on the phone and will participate in a big family celebration this weekend. I'll be the "official" photographer. I wonder if the moon was full the night she was born?

    Canon 1Ds3, 500mm f/4 +1.4 II, ISO 200, f/5.6, 1/640 sec, manual mode

    After a quick search I found out that the full moon closest to your Moms birthday was September 15

    Yes, a milestone birthday wish to your mom also. What history she could tell! I hope you have asked her many, many questions about her life.
    Nice moon too...

    That is Great indeed; In our part of the world, 84th birthday is specially celebrated because that completes 1000 full moons in one's life. So she is on to her 1200th full moon. Prayers for her well being and more happy years
    Regards

    PS: Mom is the most splendid gift of God to all mankind !!!

    Thank you all for the kind comments and wishes for Mom. I will certainly pass these on to her tomorrow. Maybe I'll get an image good enough to share here.
