The moon has always fascinated me. It has no energy of its own to emit light and yet it can shine so bright at night just by reflecting the sun. And while the moon can be visible by day, the sun is only visible by night during long winter nights near the North and South Poles.
Day dreaming at Night
At night when I can’t sleep, I stare at the silvery reflections through my window. I get the best thinking done—that is musings about life. Random things flit through my mind and things that seem trivial suddenly become all-important. In a way, the moon makes me day dream at night.
Friends Basking in the Moonlight
The moon evokes such a sense of wonder, I feel sad for anyone who has never sat through the night to stare up at the sky. I used to do that a lot during my undergraduate days. I’d sit on a hill under the open night sky somewhere on campus and we’d alternate between talking and silence to appreciate the tranquility of the night.
Behind my Lenses
My photos of the moon are some of the more memorable ones for me. I took The moon as the sun late at night in April 2013. It looked so much like the sun, I was amazed. After I took the photo, I turned it into black and white to accentuate the apparent ambiguity.Pacman ate the moon caught my attention when I was walking home at 1 a.m. in November 2014. It was such a simple frame. Technically all there is to it is the moon peeking through between branches. Yet with a little imagination, it could be interpreted as something else entirely. Re-interpreatations such as these are what make photography so much fun.
