Frank's Sketchbook Entry of the Day
| Moon Plane
May 22, 2022
I was flying back from Florida a bit over a week ago and the plane's wing
was between an overcast layer that was breaking up below it, and an almost
full moon in a clear sky above it. The full undercast looked cool, but
lacked any texture, just mostly a light gray color. This actually looked
a bit more interesting. All I had was my somewhat newer flip phone so
I figured I'd see how the picture looked. I was surprised that the moon
was visible at all. I kind of like it and it was better than nothing.
I could see how this sort of thing could inspire the lyric, "If you get
caught between the moon and New York City," though I might not have even
been in New York state when I took this picture (I was flying into Syracuse).
Also, I must admit the title of this image is less inspired, more literal
The slightly larger, full resolution image is
I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random
sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes
just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly
scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also
am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated
it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of
people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title
provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind
if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search
engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.
Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox
properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't.
I don't care.
If you want to see the image without the annoying blue-lined background
image, just click on the image.
