Maybe it's only me, but I thought I saw a "smiling face"... The last pic of this series.

I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

Not a "smile face "for me but a very strong, unusual picture : it gives desire to take a feather to write a text about ... in the light of the moon ! ( sorry for my "poor" english ! )

Didn't see the face at first, but then: boom! There it is. Very clever.

@IanSmith: Thank you my friend! I was so drawn to this moon (though it's not a full moon yet) that I decided to give it a try... so glad the auto focus system of this little cam didn't let me down.:-)
Have a great Friday!!!

I like the shallow depth on the barbed wire...the sharpness of the moon. The pull is strong, excellent photo.
