The full moon happened two days ago but the moon’s brightness was still in its fullness early last night. It stopped me right on my tract while I was on my way to the wash room from my bedroom.
The moon view was in an adjacent room with a peeping view of the ocean and the sky in between the roofs and side walls of our neighbors’ buildings and residences in the Poblacion. The window faces the seemingly endless Pacific Ocean if not for these residential houses blocking the view. The partly hidden dazzling moon view was enchanting nevertheless.
It was a mesmerizing sight, magnetic enough to seduce my shutter bug impulse. I captured the moon in the above photos but my camera also caught a reflection or refraction (?) in the window glass pane of a moon goddess gazing (more of staring) right in front of me (photo below)!
Perhaps my imagination’s getting darker (or shinier?) from too much Kahlua in my black coffee. You be the judge anyway.
