When asked why he chose "The Moon and Sixpence" as the title for his novel about the life of a fictional artist based on real life artist Paul Gauguin, W. Somerset Maugham explained that the title was a reference to individuals who, while reaching for the moon, miss the sixpence at their feet.
This photo journal is about finding and capturing that sixpence.

A Rare Moment
This hummingbird flew right in front of me while I was out shooting pictures. He was less than two feet from me! It would have been great to capture him in color, but he was there and gone that quickly.
