Just Photography and Pictures
Painted River Rapids
lasting for a very short time : ephemeral pleasures. (from Greek εφήμερος – ephemeros, literally “lasting only one day”) And… a day only lasts one day, so the day is ephemeral as no two days are the same.
• having a very short life cycle or existence, not lasting.
<the autumnal blaze of colors is always to be treasured, all the more so because it is so ephemeral>
What, picture Ephemeral without the colorful Fall leaves? Let’s give it a go…. with water (in a few forms), air (in wind), fire (in heat) and, of the earth (in substance). Ephemeral? They are elemental as well. Elemental as permanence. Fleeting and permanent. Even my ephemeral images become a permanent record of something fleeting or disappearing captured in time.
Remember how I chased it all over the frozen landscape in the post Acorns to Oaks? Grab your Oreo cookie, I told you I was milking this image, but I never did tell you what happened to it. It blew right into the road under an oncoming trolley. Not a very dignified end, but it ended my chilly hunt. Luckily, I was paying attention and there were no tourists on the trolley at this time of year! I did look rather foolish and was lucky not to be crushed like a stepped on cookie.
This post spans all four seasons in photos. The fog and frost images were only two days ago. The bubbles only yesterday.
And I must admit to dorkism, chasing around a few bubbles too. But at least, I was in my own backyard, not in a public park.
Here in the frost images, I was laying on the sidewalk shooting leaves in the Hell strip out in front of my house. Another goofy look for all the neighbors to see.
The fog photo was taken in front of my house too, but no crazy camera stance. I am guessing the neighbors were wondering what I thought worth photographing.
You probably knew I couldn’t help myself. This leaf was one of the leaves from my closeup series in the post, Literally, Its Fall. It just was not close enough to make that post.
How did I do?
I am posting for Tuesday to give bloggers time to post on Wednesday.
