The time on the clock tower at *deepbreath* Camosun College Lansdowne Campus’ Young Building *gasp* isn’t wrong.

It was, in fact, 5:30 in the morning when this shot was captured.

The day before, I had received a message from my ma-in-law, who had seen the moon against the tower that morning, calculated that the next day — the day this shot was taken — would be the full moon, and suggested it would be a great photographic opportunity.

So . . . drag myself out of bed at 4:00 am to freeze my ass off at a deserted college and take photos along with my mother-in-law? I’m in!

“It’s so crazy,” I thought to myself, “it just might work.”
