The Moon

Although it has been discovered that the moon is an ugly place, we earthlings have refused to vision it as such. I for one had always been infatuated by the different shapes of the moon; especially when it’s a complete rounded sphere. In that sphere I see moving objects that pose for a while to form a shape that brings an episode in my life clearly before my eyes. Those shapes would blur again by the moving objects to form a yet another token shape that keeps me going on and on.

The act is so serine and comforting. It is also a mind awakening. Like a blend of soul and body meeting to review old files and project future plans of action.

As I was watching the full moon the night before last night, it occurred to me that I can capture these shapes on my camera, but unfortunately, it was too late to do that since the shapes were mostly vivid at the dusk.

These pictures I took last night, as you can see, did not capture what I had aimed for. I guess it was not possible for my humble camera to filter the light properly, and as a result, the shapes were lost.

Nevertheless, the dancing light in front of the camera made its own shapes, and I thought I’d share them with you, my favorite is the heart.

    Oh my God Ayya! I was practically mesmerized by the full moon for the past few days now. Glad to see we’re on the same wavelength 😛 Another thing I noticed is many people including myself see a face on the moon while others swear to have glimped some sort of animal shape or something equally weird. It’s fun to see compare and contrast what everyone else sees 😛 So what do you see? A sad face? Two people hugging each other? A rabbit? 😛 Okay take care sweets, laters!

    Most of the times I see a face, I also see maps of places; like one time I saw the road map of the area between NYC and RI, I used to drive that road every time I visited the State, and as soon as my plain landed in NYC I would higher a car and hit the road to Newport RI to visit a relative. It gave me some feeling of a relief, thinking I have left the tiresome restricted world and basked in a free land, it was so exhilarating then and seeing the shape in the moon brought that feeling back.
    I also see two lovers hugging each other, may be that is my wishful thought? :p
