Obviously an enhanced photo. It was my chance to take a farmhouse and recreate a childhood memory I had last weekend.
The weather was uncommonly warm and humid for this time of year. I've seen that full moon before. Many times actually as a child. I seemed to notice things like that as a child. Part curiosity and part a child's imagination.
There was nothing better than playing outside until dark with my friends and cousins. Sometimes it was tag, sometimes it was hide and seek. Always however, it was exciting. Rolling in the grass wet with the evening dew, being a bit scared hiding behind a barn or just under the storm cellar doors with the moonlight filtering through the cracks...behind me...darkness.
Finding my way with only the glow of the lightening bugs...I am still troubled as to why we loose this innocence with age. Put me back in that yard on a clear summer evening just one more time. I will spend more time observing and less time hiding.
