Some nights after dinner, a few of us MBQ-ers will head out to the docks to look at the stars and soak in the Southern Hemisphere constellations. Here are a few shots that I’ve gotten, including views of the sky and some experimentation with long-exposure photography.
A few of us decided to show off our spelling skills. Turns out the Bruins know how to write the abbreviated name of our university.
A few of us walked up the hill at Gump one night to get a good view of the moon rising over the bay. On the way up, we stopped to take pictures of the stars, partly blocked by the palm trees that line the path up the hill.
Most nights, we head out to the docks after dinner to see the stars. This is a view across Cook’s Bay with a silhouette of the mountains on the other side of the bay.
Once we got to the top of the hill to take our photos of the night sky, we heard a rustling in the bushes and saw Skippy, the station dog, coming out of the bushes. He had followed us up the hill from the dorms by the ocean, and was very interested in our cameras. I tried to take a selfie with him, but he was moving around and making me laugh too much.

Playing with long-exposure, I tried to get a shot of my friend Irrawaddy taking a picture of the night sky. She moved before the shutter closed, and I ended up with her ghostly imprint on the photo
Flower of fairy, I can’t decide.
