The moon has been incredibly beautiful these last few days. I do enjoy catching them from time to time. These shots were taken yesterday morning as I wandered around very early outside on Columbus Street on a very much cooler morning. From the front of the house to the back yard...we were brilliant, beautiful and sometimes even blue.
I must confess though, I missed getting the most beautiful moon on film. Close to 5:30am on Friday morning, I was coming back home across the Causeway with John, after spending another special night with he and Mike at Mahogany Oaks. We had warning of the beautiful moon through the tall pine trees surrounding Mahogany Oaks, but there was no way to know it would be quite so incredible hanging over Lake Ponchartrain. Just through the toll gate, there it was to our right...full, glowing, golden, and beautiful with beyond dancing diamonds. I sware, if I didn't know better I'd have been tempted to hop out of the moving vehicle and walk that beautiful yellow brick road across the water to the moon.
My camera was in the back seat tucked away in my backpack. I thought about getting it out. Instead, I savored the moon and its yellow brick road bumping across the Causeway for as long as it stayed with us. The camera stayed right where it was.
Sometimes, that's the very best decision. WIshing you a full moon on the water making yellow brick roads kind of Sunday! They say there's a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow...I wonder what we'd find at the end of this very special path?
