The Super Moon in Phoenix-Arizona – a timelapse by Mircea Goia

Three days I have hunted the Super Moon last month around Phoenix-Arizona (USA).
The end result is this timelapse video, which is actually my first timelapse ever. But won’t be the last :).
I have used a Sony RX10 III camera ( which is also my photography camera.
As you see in its description (if you google for it) it is a bridge camera, no DSLR nor a point and shoot camera.
The lens is fixed and it’s a 24-600mm one.
The moon was shot using various zooms, including the maximum 600mm. I filmed in both 4K and HD but I only exported as HD because my computer can’t handle 4K (need to get a new one).
I have processed the images in Adobe Lightroom and used LRTimelapse software for making the timelapses.
I finished it using Adobe Premiere CS 6 for the final editing and some corrections (including Red Giant Denoiser for removing some of the noise).
You can find me here:

I used a song composed by my friend Sergiu Muresan, who is a film and games music composer. Some of his music was used in some of the trailers of well known films. You can find him here

If you like it you can like it and share it on social media, thank you :)!
Any questions? Shoot in the comments :)!

Kirby’s Augusta: A Super Woman named Lulu



Views:3765|Rating:5.00|View Time:3:21Minutes|Likes:17|Dislikes:0
In May 1884 faculty members of the Medical College of Georgia gathered around a teen-aged west Georgia girl and tried to determine her secrets. The effort, as far as we know, was unsuccessful.

Her name was Lulu Hurst and she was called by The Augusta Chronicle “The Amazing Wonder of the Nineteenth Century.”
What made her a wonder?

The story Lulu and her parents liked to share was that she had been struck by lightning during a summer storm at age 14 and soon began to exhibit unusual powers. Parts of her body gave off sparks. Clothing and objects flew about her house.
If she tried to open an umbrella, according to accounts in The Chronicle, it immediately would turn itself inside out and fly about the room.

Then there was her strength.
Although Lulu was not all that large, she could push around men twice her size. To demonstrate what some newspapers began to call her “animal magnetism,” she would mount a stage and ask any man in the crowd to try to take a cane from her hands.
They couldn’t.

Soon, Lulu would be leading the larger males around as they tried desperately to jerk it free. Among those flummoxed by her maidenly muscles was former Confederate Gen. John B. Gordon, then a U.S. senator.

 She was a sensation. She performed across Georgia, putting on shows in Atlanta, Athens, Augusta and Savannah.

In Macon, members of the Mercer University faculty examined her with keen interest. They apparently reached the same conclusion as their college counterparts in Augusta: No one could explain Lulu.
Even she couldn’t explain it.

And there were a lot of them. Not only did the staffs of MCG and Mercer examine her closely, so did others, including Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone; geologist John Wesley Powell and even a 10-year-old Winston Churchill who caught her show in New York.
Yes, Lulu the Georgia teenager went big time.

Atlanta Constitution editor Henry Grady was enthralled with her, and his paper began to cover her exploits. She went to New York and New England and even California.
She performed for members of Congress in Washington, D.C.
Her parents went with her, so did the family business manager Paul Atkinson. Her travels earned the equivalent of a million bucks in today’s money.

Then, rather abruptly, she quit show biz. Her father tried to talk her out of it, but Lulu seemed tired of the attention. She had not, however, grown tired of Mr. Atkinson, her manager. They married, moved to his hometown of Madison, Ga., and lived happily ever after.

She claimed her powers were nothing special, simply the proper use of leverage.
Some believed her.
But some thought she just wanted people to think she was normal.
Yeah, right

Daughter of a Preacher Man follows Seattle band Willow and the Embers on a three-week tour retracing the fault lines of Willow’s family history. In each of the small towns where her father preached when she was a child, we hear Willow’s voice: onstage, in train tunnels, in churches and cemeteries, her haunting music unearths the silences that fractured her family years ago.

“I just wanna take you and run away.”

Liz and Bailey knew the moment they saw one another at work that they wanted to meet. It only took one date for them to know there was something special between them. Their relationship took a turn when Liz’s brother passed away, and they were both reminded of the importance of their faith and families in their lives. They moved halfway across the country to be back close to Liz’s family, and celebrated their wedding not far from home in the adorable town of New Harmony, Indiana. There were so many special moments that day, but their first look is what truly stole our hearts… I imagine it will do the same for you.

For Arizona, celebrating MLK day has a lot to do with the Super Bowl

“How could anybody in his right mind go to play there?” With the Super Bowl at stake, Arizona politics stood in the way 23 years ago. And history almost repeated itself.
