What I see becomes a sort of visual illumination, like a match struck unexpectedly in the dark, a gift, lighting my path into wonder -Virginia Woolf

A Full Moon Weekend in August

Leave a comment

Being August it was easy to be outside. I was walking down the lane 9:30 pm, Friday, August 14 and there the moon peeked from behind the tree, barely over a house. Then on Saturday I noticed about the same time the moon a bit higher and more easterly. And on Sunday it was even more to the east.

I also wanted to document my neighbour’s use of incandescent and florescent light bulbs over the adjoining garage doors. They are fabulous in the rain.
