Don't miss out on this.
Today I will share with you a short walk I did sometime before the lockdown. It was on an evening with a full moon that I decided to do some last minute marketing at our neighborhood market. On my way home, I was so fascinated with the moon that I began taking pictures of it every now and then till I got home.
Photo above shows the street with quite a number of these motorized tricycles (an indigenous form of auto rickshaw) which is a common type of public transportation not only in our area but in the whole country. Everyone seems oblivious of the full moon above with (I believe) the planet Jupiter shining brightly too on the upper left side of the moon.
I took another picture of the sky just before I crossed the street on my way home. The entrance to our subdivision is on the left side with the first lamppost.
I met this man who appears to be going to the market too.
Turning left on the first street, I took a picture of the moon over one of my neighbor's fence.
Almost home now.
Home at last. The walk really made me remember those movies I saw when I was younger starring Vincent Price. Gave me quite an eerie feeling.
Here's another shot of the full moon. Actually,the full moon has been associated with strange or insane behavior, including suicide, sleepwalking and violence. The lunar theory, otherwise known as the lunar effect, is the idea that there's some correlation between moon cycles and human behavior. Whether there is any substance to this is yet to be really established. Also in folklore, the full moon is the time when men turn into werewolves and vampires and hunt for their prey. Thinking of all these really can give one goose pimples lol.
Hope you enjoyed my short walk under a full moon. Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you next week for another edition of the Wednesday Walk. Until then, please stay safe and have a blessed week.
