Almost Full Moon

Went over to Livia's place to shoot some photos of the moon this late afternoon before meeting up with Martin, an old E.piphany co-worker. We went to eat at Sabra, which is one of two kosher restaurants (three, if you include Izzy's Bagels (or however you spell it)) in the SF Bay Area.

Anyway -- the moon shots would have been better, but I forgot to bring the tripod quick-release plate, so I just set the camera on the tripod and held it there. Not ideal. :) Exif data is below the images. The moon was nice and orange. I had to use "sunny" white balance (it is illuminated by the sun, after all) because auto white balance just made it white.

Here's a photo of Livia's music. She was practicing Sibelius Violin Concerto for a concert this weekend:
