This weeks challenge topic is ‘Fleeting‘
I had started to do these photo challenges to try to get back to photographing things other than my children. Don’t get me wrong, I love taking and having their pictures, I just wanted to broaden my spectra.
However, this weeks challenge speaks of childhood.
Childhood is fleeting. Innocence is fleeting. Being able to find pure joy in the splashing of water is fleeting.
To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.
In a blink of an eye our babies change to toddler; our toddlers turn to teens; and then our teens turn to adults.
Each picture I take is trying to capture that fleeting moment in their lives.
