This morning, I read of brilliant, modern methods of evil spirit removal in Afghanistan.
Here’s a snip:

‘The patient is kept in chains for 40 days on a diet of bread with black pepper,’ said Malik, the shrine supervisor. ‘He is given this to make bad spirits goes away. When someone is infected by ghosts, we read verses of the Koran, and married women without children give them amulets to make the spirits depart.’
‘It has been the same for 360 years, and thousands of people have been cured.’
The other day, I watched this painting with light video at fstoppers.
Last night, I got a bug in my bonnet to give it a whirl.
Mind you, I spent about an hour on shooting.
Here’s a touched up version of one I came up with.
Click below the fold to see the backgrounds I made with Illustrator. Feel free to download them and use them for your own painting with light test.
I’ll also post a couple non-touched up images for you to see.
The Moon is more than just a familiar sight in our skies. It dictates conditions on Earth. The Moon is large enough to stabilize our planet’s rotation, holding Earth’s polar axis steady to within a few degrees. Without it, the current Earth’s tilt would vary chaotically by tens of degrees. Such large variations might not preclude life, but would lead to a vastly different climate.
