Moon Over Singapore

I took this photograph last month from the parking garage next door to my block. No extra equipment was used (such as a telescope) other than my Nikon D40X and a telephoto lens (which is slightly discolored, giving the moon the slightly tan color). Also, no other phototrickery was used, other than cropping the photo to the 300 x 300 pixel size.

Hi there!

I have been trolling the internet looking for american expatriates to contact regarding my interest in the Obama 08 campaign and I came across your blog. I am interested in arranging meetings, fundraising events, and similar activities for the campaign among the expatriate community in Singapore. The link to my group on the Obama site is

There is a certain critical mass of group members I need to hit before I can do much for the campaign. I am not sure what the critical mass might be but I am pretty sure it is something more than the one american resident (me) currently in my group!.

Anyway, I have no idea what your political leanings might be but my email to you is an effort to widen my net of american contacts in Singapore. If you can forward this message or link to my site that would be greatly appreciated but I will also understand if you decline to do this.

Irregardless I enjoyed browsing your blog this morning!

Subhanallah, gorgeous moon. Unfortunately, we didn't see much of it, if at all, because it rained all day last night!

Yes, I'm sorry to say that I didn't get to see the eclipse either. The weather here is such a problem for those of us interested in astronomy. This particular photo was taken a month ago, back in July. I saw that the moon was clearing over the HDB blocks to the east, so I grabbed my camera and ran down to the car park next door to take some pictures. At least these came out decently.
