One of the things I love about squares is that not every photograph needs be a masterpiece. This challenge is about being kind and having fun with squares. It also means I can display those photographs I can’t quite convince myself to delete, but would otherwise not get a show. Such as this one I took in September of Mars and the moon early one morning.

It kinda doesn’t really work! However I’ve always been one for the expression ‘If at first you don’t succeed try, try again‘. So try again I did in early October.

I was feeling quite proud of myself until I realised looking at Margaret’s post that this shot was in fact of Venus not Mars! I’d done that human thing of forgetting that both we and the planets are all moving. I really must remember to use the fabulous website Time and Date for determining the Night Sky. Still, I still love it as a shot and best of all that moment of realisation made me giggle to myself. It also enables me to add on the W C Field’s addition to those words of wisdom ‘If at first you don’t succeed try, try again‘.

Then quit. No use being a fool about it !

  1. I really LIKE the first shot. Like a LOT. The only way I remember that the planet is Venus is because she can be seen in the morning sky and sometimes early in twilight before the moon is up — and she is never far from the moon. Astrology. You may not believe, but you learn a lot about the planets.
