The Moon and Venus, 6 AM, 04/22/2009

I was headed out for my walk this morning and saw this beautiful pairing of the Moon and Venus. I wish I’d gotten my tripod, but for being hand-held this came out pretty good. Taken with a Pentax K1000D, Tamron AF70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di LD, set at 300mm, f/5.6, ISO 800 speed. If you look closely, you can see Venus showing a phase, which actually is about the same phase as the Moon, but it’s a little overexposed.

I was at Walmart tonight.  I wanted shampoo.  I couldn’t find shampoo.  Not just regular shampoo, anyway.  I could find vitamin-enriched shampoo, fruity shampoo, shampoo for damaged hair, shampoo that could clarify, fortify, moisturize, thicken, and nourish with coconut milk.  I can find hydrating shampoo, raspberry shampoo, grapeseed shampoo, and shampoo with conditioner in a variety of ways.  I can make my hair shiny and smooth, or pump up the volume, or repair split ends.  But what I couldn’t find was just shampoo.  Whatever happened to White Rain?  What if you just have hair?
