Shoot Me NowThe Moon

The Moon
Published on Saturday, April 21, 2012 by

Day 21 of the photo challenge has “Moon” as the subject.  Moon.  I suspect moon is the subject BECAUSE THERE ISN’T A MOON IN THE SKY RIGHT NOW!  BAH!

I briefly considered mooning something and having someone take a picture of me from the FRONT folks… the FRONT.  But that began to just sound WEIRD.  Then I considered asking strangers in Corolla to moon the camera.  Unfortunately, right now there are just tourists… the tourons have yet to hit the beaches.

A few minutes after we arrived at the beach house, I began to ponder the moon.  It was then, ahem… in the bathroom, that I looked up and saw the moon.  A towel hook that has been there for years, unseen because frankly, it is always there.

From now on, I will always make a point to see the moon.

  • Amazing isn’t it that sometimes the things we’re looking for are right before our eyes. I have the same problem with car keys. Great towel hook.

  • I like the angle. Were you sitting upon the throne when you shot it?

  • Of course you looked up to see the moon – you can’t look down to see it – unless you are in Australia, right?

  • Well this qualifies quite nicely.  Love it.

    Have a terrific weekend.   🙂

  • Isn’t it just typical that the moon would choose to disappear just when you need it the most? Great take on the theme, Katherine!

  • But where on earth is your towel then?

    I was hoping that at least one person would be brave enough to shoot the moon at us, but for some reason I never expected that you’d be the one to actually consider it. I certainly didn’t consider it.

    Anyway, what really interests me about this picture is that you didn’t really know the moon hook was there until you started thinking about the moon. I think that’s one of the things I like about this challenge — that it makes you stop and take a look at the world around you, which we tend to ignore because we’re lost in our thoughts or in a hurry or whatever.

    Kudos, Katherine!

    • Thanks!  I had to laugh about me not being one you would think about considering a “real!” moon.  Maybe it’s the Catholic schools I went to that put it in my head?!  Us Catholic girls… ha ha!

    I adore crescent moons. I take vintage looking photos with people sitting on a crescent moon. So glad you looked up from where you were sitting in the bathroom! 🙂

    Yup–no moon means viewing the meteors tonight will be excellent………’cept for the clouds.

  • I love that it was unseen because it’s been there for so long. Lovely post Katherine, and great take on this theme.

  • that crescent moon hook is totally-super-cool, and I want one! 

  • I love it! And … I love that you almost missed it because it is always there. I did the same thing with one of my objects… I don’t remember what it is now – but I know I almost did it.

  • These are really fun, Katherine.   Good job!

  • Wow that’s really cool.  I wish I had one for my house.

    OK, but do you know why the moon is often depicted on outhouses? Apparently, the men’s privy had a sun on it and the ladies’, a moon. For some reason (that I cannot recall) the sun symbol went out of favor and now you just see the moon in pictures! 

    Sorry about that, sometimes the free association thing in my brain needs reigning in :-/

    Yeah! The towel must be included in the picture lol! Just kidding. I should say that’s a great lesson learned.
