Being Square in July

Many of you would be aware that I’ve joined Becky for her Are You Square photo challenge previously.

I did so last year for Square in September as well as Square in December, and although I tried to join in for Square in March this year alas, I was really busy and only posted a few times throughout the month.

With Becky being busy, and June already underway, all eyes and cameras are now seriously focused on July when the theme is Blue.

Becky says that: “ . . . maybe your squares could;

  1. be a ‘Bolt from the Blue’ – something unexpected or surprising
  2. explore ‘Into the wide blue yonder‘ – sky, sea or maybe a location that is appealingly unknown and mysterious
  3. simply be ‘Blue – whether that’s azure, cobalt, sapphire, cerulean, navy, ultramarine, indigo, or turquoise
  4. and there is an extra challenge for those of you up for it – can you manage to combine two of these, or maybe even all three?”

The mind ponders all the blue things that could make the cut.

However . . .

Becky also says: ” . . . if daily is too difficult, then feel free to post every other day, weekly or even just ‘once in a blue moon‘.

Did you see that?  Becky used the words blue + moon and all I read was “Blue Moon”.

So, having given it some serious thought for all of about 1 nanosecond, I’ve decided I’m going to include the Moon in my submissions for the month and, given this year is the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing in July of 1969, I’m sure I’ll have no trouble taking, finding and sharing lots of photos and interesting fun facts about my dear old friend.

I’m looking forward to Being Square in July, and hope Becky appreciates my spin on her theme.

Here’s a photo to get things started.

My Dear Old Friend – The Moon

I took this photo back in February 2015.  I had no idea what I was doing, and I’m not sure I know what I’m doing now either, but I do like to just point and click and see what transpires.

  1. A wonderful shot. I’ve been thinking about the moon landing too, how exciting it was and how I would not have been too surprised if they had discovered it was cheese after all.
