Last Friday was a Blue Moon. The kids were a bit disappointed that it wasn't actually blue, just that it meant that two full moons in the same month. On a whim, I took my point-and-shoot camera out to the back patio and grabbed a couple of shots. This one turned out halfway decent through the branches and leaves of our old apple tree:
Later I decided to grab one more through the ripple glass of our upstairs bathroom window using my phone camera:
Since the kids were so disappointed at it not being blue, I decided to adjust a filter in PhotoShop to add some blue to the first image – though Princess Nagger directed, and had me make it a smidge more purple:
She pointed out that it looks like a cool dragon's eye. I think she's on to something – what do you think?

When we were living in Pennsylvania, it seemed the stray cats knew we were suckers for their hard luck stories and would somehow end up on our back porch or in our barn, and definitely in our hearts. Moving all … Continue reading →
This is my all-time favorite time of year. With crisp clear air, the trees and foliage starting to turn into a gloriously painted landscape, what’s not to love? Some trees tend to have that resistance factor, hanging on to their … Continue reading →
Woah! I have never seen such kind of moon ever. It looks beautiful though. Thanks for sharing it.
Love the ripple photo! Actually, I was also very disappointed to learn (at quite a ripe age!) that a blue moon wasn’t blue!
Definitely looks like a dragon’s eye!
Cool moon shots. I love the one through the window.
Our family took some time to admire the moon as well. I didn’t think to take pics. Yours are great. Thanks for sharing them.

It does look like a cool dragon eye!!
I will also admit to not realizing a blue moon isn’t actually blue . . . and had to do some research, haha! Great shots. Definitely can see the dragon’s eye.
great photo yeah i was a little disappointed to learn at my age that a blue moon really isn’t blue it shattered me and she is right is does kind of look like an eye
I love that she made you make it a smidge more purple! I was really depressed when I saw a grownup comment on facebook that the moon looked white like normal and not blue. I can only hope that this particular person was joking. I made sure to explain to my kids that a blue moon isn’t actually blue!
I broke the not blue news to my kids before it happened. I wanted to avoid the potential disappointment.
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh is that what my husband was doing. I didn’t know that. Fab pics girlfriend. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day.
Wow your moon looks blue. Ours didn’t. 🙁 My little was a bit disappointed it wasn’t.
Check out my post!! I think most moms could relate.
Happy WW .
Gorgeous photos!!! Thanks for linking up, I will do the same. Do you have a badge that I could add to my post? x
Great photos! Our moon definitely did not look blue!
She’s right. It’s totally a dragon’s eye. 😉
Cool pics! I like the edit too, it totally does look like a dragon eye. I was disappointed when I found out what a blue moon really was too lol.
When I was little, I always wondered if a Blue Moon actually would actually be blue too! LOL!
I think it looks like a dragon eye, too!
We totally missed the blue moon. Jude was mad at me. I need to pay more attention! Great photos, btw!
A dragon’s eye is definitely what I see!
Hi Stacy, cool moon photo, esp with Halloween quickly approaching. Stopping by to visit. Thanks for hosting this Hop.
