Moment

Moment

Todays topic for the photography assignment is Moment, and here is what they have to say on this:

Our lives are made up of big events and tiny moments. Ultimately, life is fleeting, and oftentimes it’s these small moments we love to document.

Think about the fleeting moments you experience each day — from a quiet, precious moment with your child to a busy commute through the subway, among strangers. What will you share with us?

Tip: Movement is a great way to convey time and fleetingness. If you’d like to play with motion

 I had some ideas immediately that popped in to my head and yes I took some photos this morning to but nothing came up to scratch in my mind.  Then my external hard drive that houses most of my photographs literally sparked, went hot and flashed a red light before finally going to the Gods, so that is now at the computer shop and I am hoping all my pics can be saved.

So below I bring you a photograph of a moment with movement.

My two boys are at the Organic farm in Gloucestershire.  This was a real ramshackle trampoline with just bare poles at the top.

My heart went every time they jumped imagining them impaling themselves on the pole, thankfully they didn’t.

 Both had great ‘moments’ and memories made.

I couldn’t resist this photograph.  We went to Bath and on the street we were staying there were at least 3 amazing ice cream shops.

I said as a treat that one day if they behaved my boys could have an ice cream breakfast.  They behaved, they got the breakfast, evidence of which you will see below.

It tickled me pink to be able to let them do this, a one off ‘moment’.

Last but not least, my two boys having a ‘moment’ together again.

I don’t think there is much better than seeing ones offspring laugh together and having fun, do you?

The blur on my eldest’s face I think gives the sense of the intensity of them messing around and laughing, the older pranking and trying to make the youngest laugh.

It worked!

    Aiks! Good luck with your hard drive. Can’t imagine watching it spark up like that 😦 I get quite paranoid with storing my photos. I try to keep them in two separate disks in case one gets toasted or stolen, etc. But even that doesn’t seem enough for me sometimes 😖
    Re the happier moments, beautifully captured pictures! The older one does look like he’s about to do something naughty to his brother on the trampoline.
    Ice cream for breakfast.. Wished i’d thought of that! That nice cold n sweet feeling would be a great jumpstart to the day!! 😆

      yes it is partly my fault i need to be more organized and actually sort all my photos out rather than chucking them on there otherwise I might have thought to have two of them running…sighs…i really hope they can save my info x Glad you like the pics 😀 The eldest is normally the less naught so it was a good moment hehe x

        Nah it can happen to anyone. I’ve had it happen one too many times so I’ve kinda learned my lesson ☺️ all the best! They’re usually recoverable unless it’s a really old piece of hardware *fingers crossed*

    I hope they’re able to save your pictures. The ones you shared here show your boy’s closeness so well. I’m sure they fight like typical siblings, but to have a good relationship beyond that is such a wonderful thing. I love the ice cream for breakfast idea! That’s a memory they’ll probably always have.

    I love the first one, but I really would like to take a clue from the second one and have some ice cream now.

    Good shots! Hope the computer thing works out though. I hate having to worry about things like that.

      yes exactly it would be years worth as it was the ‘actual’ hard drive from the computer that was taken out before the whole thing was wiped clean…i find out in 3-4 days…hows the boy? Like the pics? 🙂 x
