One thing I love about taking photos is that it forces me to be present — to consider and appreciate now, before now evaporates and becomes then.

Ephemeral:
adjective
1. Lasting for a very short time.

On sunny days, late afternoon light streams through these old glass bottles, creating a colorful, ephemeral display that lasts for a few moments before the sun drops below our neighbor’s house. That light traveled 149 million kilometers to dance on my wall in bright color.

Show us what ephemeral means to you. It could be a dry leaf floating on an errant breeze, the sleep-floppy smile of your waking three-year-old, or the cake that turned out just right before the hungry hordes descend on it. So looking forward to see the fleeing moments you’ll capture!
