While she wasn’t quite yet full, the moon last night was watching over me. Anxiety was eating away at my good mood, so to calm the fuck down and move forward with my evening I decided on some ‘down time’ photographing and editing, and who better to be my model but Luna? When my anxiety is so rife it hurts to breathe, creating is the way to re-discovering peace. Always. The following quote illustrates what I mean beautifully…
“Art is a wound turned into light.” – Georges Braque
One of my favourite free editing programs to use is Lunapic and recently I’ve uncovered a whole other world of features. The next few hours were happy ones, as they ought to be on a Saturday night. I also gathered together some of my favourite moon quotes from some people I happen to like rather a lot.
The original Luna…
…and the ways I interpreted her…
All of these effects can be found in the drop down menu under ‘Art.’
Effect : Paper Folding
There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls.
— George Carlin
Effect – Frost
If the moon smiled, she would resemble you.
You leave the same impression
Of something beautiful, but annihilating.
– Sylvia Plath
Effect – Dark
Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness.
— Allen Ginsberg
