March Photo A Day - Moon

I love the moon. I mean who doesn't? Mysterious, unique, shiny. It has a Dark Side. I bet there are cookies over there too. It is really, really hard to take photographs of the moon with a point and shoot camera. As such I present two quick peeks at some recent attempts.

The one is the first full moon of this year. I took a series of snaps as it rose up out of the Atlantic. My peeps and I were goofing around after a seriously delicious dinner and I didn't even know that there was a full moon! Luckily, I never go anywhere without my camera!


This one I took this month. Again another unsuspected full moon. Unless you pay attention (which I really don't) I think the full moon rather sneaks up on a person and then acts all surprised by the response.


"What!" says the moon. "You think I'm so very pretty?"

"Umm? Yeah? Why else would I be all like, 'ohh full moon! Sweet!'" I tell it.

"And these clouds don't make me look...plump?"

"No. Of course not! If anything they are rather slimming."

"Shucks!" the moon says blushing just a bit.

"Ugh!" I mutter, "Such an ego!"

  1. A red full moon has to mean something, right? Like werewolfs turn into wolfs, but fully nude, hairless wolfs?

    I love the moon too. Especially when it's a creepy little sliver.
