Pens;

Fleeting moments are a constant avenue that we walk throughout our days and nights. The day moves quickly and the night becomes morning. The whirl of time is ungraspable, and yet we can record its life in our own.

Photography allows for the juxtaposition of a lost, fleeting moment to be placed side-by-side with the present. It’s uncanny and mysterious and real.

In the Lens section are two examples. The first is a Spring evening in late May, and the sunset blew across the sky with the blaze of a high 80-degree day. The second is a waterfall that is found on the University of Delaware campus. It’s timing is reflective of young students’ lives pulsing and rushing from class to class and life event to life event.

Fleeting moments are obvious and subtle, but they are evergreen with the living of life. Thanks again WordPress for another fun and thought-provoking challenge.

Note: As always I welcome any comments about this post or any part of my blog.

  1. Something magical happens during sunsets as well as when water cascades down from a waterfalls. Today, you reminded us how amazing that magic feels. Thanks.

    Lovely shots – particularly like your interpretation of the UofD waterfall vs the students lives. Well done!

    Thank you very much – such great shots of my two favourite subjects. The best – for sure the first one but that does not mean that the second any less great.
