Oh swear not by the moon ….
‘Oh swear not by the moon, the inconstant moon that monthly changes in her cycles orb lest your love prove thus inconstant’. So pleaded Juliet to her Romeo in the first demanding throws of their love affair, so brief but so eternal. Change is all around us – creeping up on us in the dead of night and taking us over before we even notice. Sometimes we do notice and we protest but mostly life is too encompassing and we let it be – like the moon waxing and waning and imperceptably altering but seemingling holding an eternal rhythm. Everything changes, nothing stays the same.
I post this in to response the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge titled Change … many more worthy entries can be found here
The necessary PS: The picture was taken in winter at Milhac not 10 miles from here … my husband goaded me that the moon was an accident. It wasn’t – it was one of the first moments in my embryonic photographing life that I actually saw and shot rather than just shot and hoped for the best. I bite my thumb at thee, HB²!
