We celebrated my husband's birthday yesterday with a big dinner at a steakhouse, followed by chocolate cake and ice cream at home. Lying in a food coma on the couch afterward, I looked out the window and spied the moon. Naturally, I grabbed the camera and headed outside into the cool night air, my feet crunching through the grass still damp from the day's rain. Steadying my hands on the back fence, I took a few photos of the Virgo Full Moon:
I love how the trees and rooflines can frame my shots.
We have just a little digital Canon SureShot, but it takes great pics on infinity mode!
I have little stickers for my planner* that help me remember the moon phases. I try to go outside under each full moon. It reminds me to look up, breathe, listen, get a global perspective.
Last night was perfect; cool and clear, when the bugs aren't attacking and the air is easy to breathe. Moongazing is one of my favorite things to do.
*I found my stickers here, on Etsy.
