Memorial Day 2022

Memorial Day this year is Monday, May 30th.

Floral Haven Cemetery, Broken Arrow, OK

It’s a day to honor those who died while defending our country.

Floral Haven displays every Memorial weekend thousands of casket flags donated by family members .

Many people also use the day to honor family members who have passed on.

Skywatch Friday – The Super Moon Lunar Eclipse


An almost full moon. I took the photo on Tuesday night so this is actually waxing gibbous at 98%. But hey, it is full enough for me.

Then this is the following morning. I got up and went out to get the paper at about 5:30 am and I had to run back in and get my camera and then I had to go across the street and stand in my neighbors yard to get away from the trees. Yes, that is part of the eclipse I didn’t hold my finger in front of the lens to fake it.

And this is Wednesday night’s moon. Yes, I used a Topaz filter on it to jack it up a little. Jacking up is a technical term here in Oklahoma. Do you jack things up where you live?

And this is my favorite Wednesday night moon. Yes, another Topaz filter. I love messing with photos.


I’m taking a photography class and one of our assignments to get a photo of a flag in manual mode. Being the apple polisher that I am I got a bunch of flags flying in a good stiff Oklahoma breeze.

What about you? What have you been looking at?
