Blue Moon on Halloween

Photograph by: Phil Songa Photography (www.philsongaphoto.com)

This is the full moon rising on Halloween night 2020, as seen from the Tinshill area of Leeds, UK. This was a ‘blue moon’, so called because it was the second full moon in the calendar month of October (there was a full moon on 1st October too).

Apparently, the last time there was a full moon on Halloween was… wait for it, 1944! Now you know!

Hello. I am Phil Songa. Photography is something I have always found joy in. I love the ability to capture a thing, a place, a time, an expression. I love the colour. I love the mood. I love the process of taking a photo. I love the process of going out to take a photo. I love to look at photos. In short, when it comes to photos I am sold. I am self-taught which, they say, is the best way to learn. Experimenting and trying out new things is all part of the process of enjoyment. And I aim to convey that joy to you too. I photograph a variety of subjects and enjoy both contemporary and traditional looks. People, music and things are my favourite subjects, and so I apply my skills to a range of areas including weddings, portraits and product photography. In my personal projects, I am currently re-discovering the joys of black and white representation, using HDR techniques and long exposure photography. I also enjoy jazz and African music, reading, writing and travelling. One day I would love to go round the world with just my camera - and some cash to spend! Thank you for visiting. Come back soon.
