Fly Me To The Moon

Fly Me To The Moon, originally uploaded by Visions By Vicky.
Looking for inspiration, I headed over to The Daily Shoot and found "Today's theme is blue. Make a photograph dominated by the color or that otherwise illustrates the theme."

My first thought was to try to find someone crying or depressed and then tone the whole thing blue to illustrate a person being "blue". That's a tough one though and didn't think I could convince either of my daughters to pretend for this one. I also thought about taking a photo of our recycling trash can because the blue can is for recyclables only.

Then, I noticed how blue the sky was today and how there were just enough clouds to make it interesting and how the moon had already risen so I took some photos of the afternoon sky. On this one, there happened to be a small plane flying overhead at just the right time!
