Full Moon Over “Mirror Lake”, NH, By Polymath Richard (‘Dick’) Byrd, Esq. Of ‘Wolfeboro’, NH.

Over the last month or so I have posted photos, articles and a poem by Dick Byrd: lawyer, software entrepreneur, painter, poet, photographer, raconteur, Photoshop maestro, philosopher, writer, race car driver, mechanic & all-round-nice-guy.

Given his Photoshop wizardry, I always ask Dick as to how much Photoshop is there in a given picture — in this case, Full moon over ‘Mirror Lake’, that being where Dick currently lives, waterfront (though he has sold his place and moving ‘soon’).

This is what he said about this picture:
“Below is a photo of the moon setting over Mirror Lake in the evening from my kayak.

I photographed the shot of the moon and also the shot of the horizon over the trees while I was in my kayak.  BUT, I used Photoshop to put the two photos together.

I’m concerned that I made the moon just a little too big.  I wanted the “huge-Moon” affect you do get when the moon is close to the horizon, but I might have overdone it.  What do you think?

 It is also difficult to know just how much light glint to put in the water.  I did just a little of that.  I might try to improve on it.”

This should set you up for this Wednesday’s rare Blue Moon Supermoon and partial eclipse.

Given his Photoshop wizardry, I always ask Dick as to how much Photoshop is there in a given picture — ‘Mirror Lake’ (above) being where he lives and this was from his deck.

This is what he said about this picture:
“Of course there is some photoshop.
I took out a couple of houses visible thru the trees at the far side of the lake to get that totally rustic view.
I increased the saturation a little on the sky and reduced it a little on the trees and water.

A Photo Of Myrdal, Norway By Polymath Richard (‘Dick’) Byrd, Esq. Of ‘Wolfeboro’, NH.

First a poem-in-prose and now a picture taken in Norway.

Dick had this to say about this picture:
“Here is a photo I did that I like a lot. It was taken on a trip we took through Norway about three years ago.

We were held over at at train stop in this tiny town of Myrdal, and so I was wandering around taking photos.

It does have some Photoshop enhancement, l but then everything I do has Photoshop enhancement.”

This inspired ‘holiday’, alas, does NOT get the publicity garnered by the (much more ‘punchier’ sounding) “National Orgasm Day“. That is a shame.

This is a ‘holiday’ specifically for WOMEN.

As I too have pointed out (even more so in ‘THE book‘) this ‘holiday’, which was created in Brazil, in 2007, has to-date tended to be recognized in Latin American countries — liberal Norway the notable exception.

But WE really should do our best to try and change that.

So PLEASE make a concerted effort to celebrate this wonderful holiday on Monday.

I hope you did not miss yesterday’s “National Orgasm Day” 2016. 

The good news is another one is coming next Monday. It is a recognized and celebrated holiday in Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Mexico, Spain and Norway. And this year it will be during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil!

It is a holiday, established as a municipal law, by an elected Brazilian ‘Councilor’, in Brazil, in 2007.

So this is the 10th coming so to speak.

You can read all about it on pages 20 – 21 in my “Orgasms: 101 Facts & Trivia” book.
