Memories of Moments
Snippets of captured moments are committed to our memories.
They are mental snapshots to remember a feeling, a person, a creature, a place, or event that stirred our souls.
Normally tucked away for safekeeping, they are roused when our reflecting spirits wake them from slumber.
Some memories are vast.
Some memories are trifling.
Some stand in the out in the colorful light of joy, allowing our hearts a youthful skip.
Some recede into the hushed shadows of sorrow, causing our hearts a mournful sigh.
Examined closely, each one’s character has unique texture and substance.
A few are wistfully embellished.
Linked together, they collectively transform and meld into a single vision.
The composite represents the enduring beauty of a life.
Personal. Treasured. Timeless.
This post was created for the Brenda Photo Challenge. The subject is “memories”. The flower in my photo represents the many pieces of our memories and the beauty created when all of those fragments are assembled. This particular bloom was one of many in a surprise bouquet from my sweet husband in early January. (May I never take him for granted!) The camera settings for the image were ISO 800, f/14.0, and 1/25 second.
We are very thankful to see Brenda, our dear friend, resume the photo challenge and return from her absence after the loss of her husband last fall. I hope that you will visit the other participants and cheer them on in their photographic endeavors!
