Photos Are Transient

This week we are asked to “…show us your perception of transient.” Suggestions on the theme included “…a leather-skinned motorcyclist riding across South America…it’s a seed carried on a bird’s wing…Maybe your photo is not of a person or an object but depicts the state of impermanence.”

Frankly I can’t think of anything more transient than a photograph…particularly in this digital age when hard drives crash and cellphones are lost with wedding photos on them.

Prints are only slightly less transient if properly stored in archives…

Otherwise they are doomed to slowly fade away…

Focus! What’s That?

This week’s challenge asks us to “…show us your favorite in-focus and out-of-focus moments.”

A few days ago we were leaving the house and I noticed what I thought was an unusual dragonfly on the Verbena.

So I popped off a couple of quick shots before getting into the car…

  • One in FOCUS (mostly)…

  • And then one of the Dragonfly staring back at me as the wind changed before the macro could adjust…

A Cat’s Order of Things?

This week we are challenged to “…share your take on order, whether literal, figurative, or anything in between (and sure — showing it next to a healthy dose of messiness is fine, too).

I could submit a photo of the archive room at our local library. But that is too easy.

I therefore offer an image of Feline Leaf Order…
