I love this photo.
On March 9 I wrote: I wish I knew its origin so I could give it proper attribution and link to the right place on the Web for it. But that's true for most of the photos I find on Facebook.
On May 5, Louise responded (below): Adam, it is by amateur astronomer, now photographer Laurent Laveder http://www.laurentlaveder.com/
With that information I found this NPR story about this photo set.
Specifically, it's a pet project called Moon Games.
Says Claire O'Neill of NPR:
The charm of the captions is somewhat lost in translation, but they are playful like a children's book; the whole thing actually reminds me of The Little Prince, who lived on an asteroid moon.
Adam, it is by amateur astronomer, now photographer Laurent Laveder http://www.laurentlaveder.com/ .. and yes, I thoroughly agree with you there re proper attribution ... (being a photographer myself :)) ... we are working on a fix for that with our new start up :)
Louise, THANK YOU!
That was really eating at me.
I look forward to your startup's fix.
I shared this photo on Facebook last night.
Since then it has gotten 600 likes and 600 shares.
I wish I could find more photos that have that kind of love!!
wow ! ... I love to hear that the artists are geting their due credit :) Funny actually - I gained 20 or so new followers last night- all of which were photographers ! and I could not figure out why ... :)
I'm guessing sharing that photo is why.
So now the question is how can I find more amazing photos like that one?
That is a great image, and I had never seen 500px before.
Right now my image places to peruse are Imgur and Bored Panda: http://pandawhale.com/convo/1118/creative-dad-takes-crazy-photos-of-daughters-via-bored-panda
9gag has a full moon set without the playful people that is nonetheless very cool: http://9gag.com/gag/4107659
