Just Once

Arriving at work early one summer morning I photograph a "Blue Moon" on the HSC Campus.  When there are two full moons in one month, the second one is called a Blue Moon.  I'm told the next Blue Moon will be in 2015.  August 2012

It is very difficult to photograph the moon.  For this one, I sat down at a picnic table and steadied my camera on my camera bag.  The street light gave me a little boost.  The photo was not anything special until I added a "Poster Edge" filter in Photoshop.

I was so tickled when I looked through my celestial items to find a clay mold of a gorgeous moon collection.  While I may have baked the blue clay a little too long, I loved the slightly burned tone.  I added a Sculpey glaze to the pieces.






The circular stamps were made using a wine cork!
 
"Just once in a very blue moon........I feel one coming on soon" are words from a song by Nancy Griffith, a beautiful songstress.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
