Have you really looked at the moon lately?

Full moon taken from the rooftop of our office in Diliman, Quezon City.

I took these shots during different occasions, in places that are closest to my heart. I wished I could have gotten a shot of the moon in Virac, Catanduanes so that the three places in my life would have been completed. I was born in Virac, raised and grew in Los Baños, and is working in Diliman.

Last night, Crim sent me an SMS saying: "The moon is pretty!" Then, a few minutes later another text came in. It was from Oki saying the same thing. I was already at the rooftop of our office enjoying the darkness, enjoying the same piece of joy--the full moon!

Patay ang buwan at walang pakialam
kung pinahihiram ng liwanag ng araw.
Hindi niya ito kailanman hiningi.
Lagi nating tinitingala ang buwan
na humihila sa tubig sa ating katawan.
Kilala natin ang kaniyang mga mukha:
ang siklo ng damdaming pinamumukha
o sinasalamin natin sa kaniyang mukha.
Bagamat hindi tayo iniinda ng buwan.

~ mula sa isa sa pinaka-paborito kong tula ni Allan Popa, Buwan Buwan~

Can't help but notice the moon these past two nights. Ganda nga nya. I haven't tried shooting like your first shot though. Subukan ko minsan.
