Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting
SC got me started on this quest in a fleeting moment when I was thinking of writing something else entirely, but I do love WP Challenges.
Some ideas to get you started:
- Observing nature and capturing a quiet, special moment.
- Experimenting with shots of movement.
- Taking a snapshot of someone deep in thought (or alternatively, in mid-action).
- Exploring a place that’s transient in nature (airports, stations, streets, etc.).
We think this theme is open to many interpretations and look forward to seeing what you come up with!
Here are some more photos of the Thai dancers that we came upon in a fleeting moment in San Francisco as we just happened on them. The problem with fleeting is that you don’t really know what is going on, and you don’t stick around long enough to find out. Even though we were just passing through I decided to move closer to get some better pictures than I can take with my lens extended all the way out to 270 mm.

We just walked into Union Square, San Francisco, and there they were.
I moved in for the kill. (not literally!)
They probably explained all this, but we missed it.
Even if I had heard the explanation, in my mind it’s fleeting! 🙂
For a fleeting moment it was like he caught my eye.
Then he was gone!
She, too, looked up for a fleeting moment.
Each beat of the drum is fleeting as the sound fades nearly the instant the drummer strikes the drum.
I drifted off for a fleeting moment and forgot what I was saying. I hade to erase the beginning of my first caption.
There was nothing fleeting about the amount of preparation that went into this performance.
For a fleeting moment they enjoyed the limelight.
Even the sunlight, beaming down on this young man is fleeting in San Francisco.
One fleeting bow and the performance has fleeted by.
Soon they will start another dance, then the entire event will be a thing of the past for them as well as us.
