Question Of The Day: FAVORITE JOKE!! (Im gonna love hearing these)⁠
@mackmurdoc

Question Of The Day: FAVORITE JOKE!! (Im gonna love hearing these)⁠ "Battle of the Monsters⁠ Earlier this week I posted up just the scorpion but, if you back up you will notice its actually a battle between A Scorpion and a Grasshopper. Which will win in this galactic battle of the insects. Will it be the venomous powerhouse or the quick and agile? ⁠ This is 2 simple shots. ⁠ First shot I painted the insects with the yellow and green lens hoods by Light Painting Brushes . It was really dark out so all you would have seen was a silhouette against the city and milky way. ⁠ The second shot was taken in front of the insects. so i could get a clear picture of the milkyway with a different lens. im not going to lie. Ive never shot Milkyway shots with a 50mm but it makes for some amazing shots. I had brought my Startracker (Skywatcher Sky Adventure) but... I cant see to align it right so... i gave up and just shot it regular.⁠ Photo Details⁠ Sky:10seconds@50mm/iso4000/f1.8⁠

Question Of The Day: Favorite Song?⁠
⁠
There is nothing in this world like standing with your best friends looking upon the miles and miles on beautiful landscape under a billion stars talking about life from a philosophical point of view.⁠
⁠
Nature is my Anti-Depression⁠
The Stars are my Stress Reliever⁠
Adventure is my Happiness⁠
And my Friends are my Home⁠
What more could i want?⁠

Question Of The Day: What Have you Felt Proud To Teach Someone?⁠
⁠
If you have knowledge, Let others light their light in it. An orb in the night to light your way into the depths of the universe. To explore the Unknown and go where no other man has gone before.⁠

Question Of The Day: What’s the dumbest thing you’ve done that actually turned out pretty well?⁠

@mackmurdoc

Question Of The Day: What’s the dumbest thing you’ve done that actually turned out pretty well?⁠ ⁠ "This Edit Is Crap"⁠ I went on a spontaneous adventure, posted a status and invited a few people but it ended up being just Amanda Andrade and myself. This was an extremely hard shot to get. Because there was 1 group in the distant shining their lights which kept ruining the shot. The worst part was that where i was taking shot (The only spot to be able to get this image) had waves splashing up and drenching me. So, i had to use my sweater to guard my already wet camera from the waves coming in. The Milky Way was in a great spot, and Mars and Saturn were brightly illuminated (you can see them as one is red and one is yellow). It was a beautiful night to say the least. Who knew that you could get a spectacular night sky like this only 45 mins outside of LA. I definitely will be returning to this spot.⁠ #mycanonstory #canonfanphoto ⁠ Photo Details @Canonusa⁠ Camera: Canon

⁠Question Of The Day: What’s the best way to start the day?⁠
⁠
The Night Sky Is My One True Valentine Looking into the huge vast reaches of our galaxy and realizing that the Milky Way is just a tiny small speck in the universe. When you understand that you realize that our problems that we face on a day to day is so small and insignificant. So.. don't stress the small things. Life life free :) #MyCanonStory #CanonFanPhoto ⁠

I DID IT!!!!⁠
IM SO EXCITED this worked out. Last night, I crossed off a photo on my bucket list and got a picture The International Space Station Transiting at 17,150 mph in front of the full moon. I had less that half a second to get the shot. In order to get the exact trajectory I had to drive about an hour away to get to an exact elevation, and place where it would transit thought the center. I was slightly off but, still came home successful. I still have to process the picture but i figured Id post of the video for now as proof of this achievement. I had a great time out with my buddy's Simon @simon2940 and Tony. Enjoy #MyCanonStory⁠

⁠ ⁠ "Home Among The Stars" One of the very first astrophotography Milky Way photos I ever took. This was the beginning of a new life.⁠ im excited for all the camping im about to do next year, camp fires galore, stories and memories are going to be made. Some amazing things have happened this year and things are starting to take off.. This month has been a crazy good month and so far next month is going to get better and towards my goal of living a dream, doing my passions, inspiring others, and being what i was meant to be. Don't get me wrong. I absolutely love my 2 main jobs. Ive been a production assistant for Universal Studios for 9 years now . Some of the most fun cool jobs... but... Those arnt my dreams, not my passion. I see 20-80,000 people a day, im always around crowds, but my heart, my mind, my body, my life belongs in the peace, the quiet, the wilderness, in the desert and most of all under a blanket of the most amazing stars looking up at the endless abyss of
