Good Things Do Happen After 2 a.m.

I am borrowing, rather refuting, a bit of barroom wisdom from How I Met Your Mother. Last February 19, just mere hours into the (lunar) new year, what could be deemed as a series of rather unfortunate events led to this picture.

The voices of intoxicated people coming home from a party at around 2 AM woke me up and alerted me to the fact that the power was out. A quick check on social media revealed that this was a blackout.

A blackout on the night with a new moon meant only one thing – a rare opportunity to photograph the stars. And so I did, staying up until 4 a.m. just gazing up into the sky and shooting the heavens.

    1. Thanks. 🙂 I would’ve wanted to actually go out, but cases of theft increase significantly during a power outage. And our neighborhood gets a lot dodgier as the night wears on, so I opted to stay in the backyard. That and my wife wouldn’t give me a ‘gate pass’. 😀
