Up-close with the moon

“The moon looks upon many night flowers; the night flowers see but one moon.”

~ Jean Ingelow

I have a link up with the moon ever since I was born… ever since my parents kept my name – Moon. 🙂   The moon is cool, calm and beautiful, and I never get bored looking at her. I always wanted to capture her beauty ever since I got my camera. It was just before a full moon the night sky was clear that I found a chance to get up-close with the moon.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ephemeral Moon

I once asked my parents why they kept my name ‘Moon’. They said they liked this name when one of my aunts suggested it for me. When I was young I had so many embarrassing moments with my name which was uncommon in our community. Anyway, I don’t know when I started liking my name. Probably when I realized I like the source of my name that is, the moon very much. 🙂 Ever since I felt a connection with the moon and am always charmed by its magnetic existence.

The moon is an enigma to me. Its appearance – ephemeral but its presence – eternal.

That night when I looked through my window I was amazed to see the half-moon with a reddish glow which was transient. I didn’t waste time in capturing it with my ‘third eye’ – my camera. 😉 🙂
