And so the Moon obsession unravels...

"A loyal companion, it’s always there. Watching steadfast; knowing us in our light and dark moments and changing forever, just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light...
The moon understands what it means to be human. Uncertain, alone. - Cratered by imperfections". ~ Tahereh Mafi. 

I like this quote. I think there is a lot of truth in it. There is a lesson to be learnt: 
The moon is one up; the moon is more grand. The moon is more noble and wise. The moon has seen it all. The moon can see around corners. The moon knows the beyond and can predict the tomorrow...you can't. Sit back and chill in it's temporary spotlight <3

But about the moon obsession...

It's real. 

And it is so happening right now. 

Let's just be tolerant of the grainy first attempt? ;)

Outer space, anyone? 

Clear night. Full (ish) moon. Creme complexion; utter perfection...

There is something so beautiful about the moon. 
The centuries and centuries of history we have tried to uncover? The moon knows it all. The moon knows all of our mistakes, the moon giggles at our giddy attempts to decode the past...the moon empathizes with our ambition and tears; the moon has seen it all before. 
Listen close. 

Are you superstitious about anything? I'm not particularly superstitious - not even about the moon! Beautiful pictures just turn me into a poetic werewolf. I must say I am rather proud of the improvement that has been made between the first full moon shot (January) and the final picture (March)! The latter definitely looks like the clearest of clear nights, and certainly does the moon a justice uncontaminated by cloudy pixels. 

<3 Photo's.

Are you a morning bird, or a night owl?
