Moon shadow

A little PhotoShop work combined two photos into the composite, above. Moon shadow just seemed like an appropriate title. Of course, I’ve had that song stuck in my head since I posted this.

I stumbled onto a forum that discussed the meaning behind Cat Steven’s song Moonshadow. Some ideas were hilarious. They include:

1. The effects of post-traumatic stress (losings eyes, hands and legs can do that to you I guess).

2. Moonshadow was the name of a military helicopter in Vietnam (if you were the enemy, you wouldn’t want to be followed by Moonshadow)

3. A cancerous x-ray and the devastating effects of the disease.

4. Being tailed by members of the Unification church (shadowed by Moonies) looking for handouts and converts.

I think it was just a simple, silly song that Cat made up to keep us guessing.

Whatever the origin of the song, the title is appropriate. And the photo is great.
