What happens to you at a Full Moon?
“…spooky effects have been ascribed to the phases of the moon….But when the statistics are redone properly, the correlation with lunar phase always evaporates….Yet many sensible people—including police officers and emergency room staff—continue to believe otherwise.” —Steven Strogatz
There has been said to be no evidence based research to prove that the full moon has any effect upon us in any fashion whatsoever. However, oddly enough when there is a full moon, I always seem to know it has passed the next morning. No, not because I have sprouted hairs and been howling all night. But because I will pee all night, up, down, up, down, constantly and toss and turn all night long.
What does this say about me?
No idea, not sure I want to know either lol.
Just that I know this happens every time, so there must be something in it right?
On to the photo editing bit now.
I decided it was time to play around with my trial of Corel before it runs out.
I had in my ‘To Edit’ folder some photos, in my mind not very good ones, nonetheless I couldn’t face throwing them away, of the full moon the other night.
So I decided to play around with the shadows, highlights etc, to darken most of the sky, with this it did take away most of the cloud. Bringing more of the cloud in made it just too fluffy and fuzzy which wasn’t the look I was trying to achieve. I could have taken all the hue away from around the moon but actually quite like it, so kept most of it in and kept a touch of the original colour from it too.
Now I quite like it and won’t be trashing it, though it is far from perfect it is suitable enough to invoke some stories in my head of bats flying around and mystical going’s on happening, hehe.
What do you think?
Here we have the same full moon again, edited in Corel. I used a heavy black and white filter, although I tweeked around a bit I decided the filter in it’s original state was as good as it was going to get.
I wanted to show you this photo, mainly because the two lights up in the air are from an aeroplane however they remind of two eyes, some kind of alien being boring down from above, surveying the world and the full moon in it’s glory. The lights below by the rooftop are actually big sports lights for a football match that was going on, nothing I am afraid more exciting than that but one could of course let one’s imagination go wild!
So what happens if anything to you upon a full moon?
