The Full Moon Forgives

“I’m sorry.

I didn’t mean to do it, not really.

I mean, I considered it, but the possibility of death was slight.”

The full moon makes no reply.

“Okay, then. Thanks for listening.”

    Gorgeous Becca! How cool to combine with flash fiction. I tried last night and couldn’t get a good shot. I’ll try again, using he settings you posted as a guide. 🙂

  5. Beautiful job! You take such pretty photos.

    I wanted to take a picture last night – it was a lovely evening, but my camera battery is exhausted. That’s what it tells me, even though I’ve plugged it in to charge for two days now. 🙁

    I would find the moon’s cold and quiet as disapproving! But I suppose it is a patient listener (:
