The Dark Side of the Moon

If you came to this blog expecting to read something about the Pink Floyd album " Dark Side of the Moon", then I'm sorry to disappoint you. : )
Rather its about our very own moon, the earth's only satellite. I was doing some reading on stories about the moon from past centuries and it was facinating ! Many cultures and civilizations considered the moon to be a dark and mysterious object. Infact the word "lunatic" is derived from the Latin word "Luna" because it was believed that the phases of the moon and insanity were linked.

Popular legends and myths mention demons and other scary characters coming out on the day of the full moon. The most popular full moon character would be the "Werewolf" who transforms from a timid human into a blood thirsty wolf-like creature when he sees the full moon.

Well me being the brave man that I am, was intrigued by all this literature and decided to get some shots of the moon from the safety of my apartment terrace. And as luck would have it,

It was a Full Moon !!!

Here are two of the shots that came out good.

Enjoy them and I wish you good mental health
