for some brain-dead reason, i could not for the life of me remember how to make my camera stop taking ridiculously long exposures. it's so simple, it's very embarrassing. but the reverend and i are working so hard these days that many things are slipping past our beleaguered brains. after figuring our my stupidity, i took a few goofy pictures using camera functions that i had to dig out of the recesses of my consciousness. that second picture really expresses what life is like here in the middle of every night.
