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!"
