Temporary Places

Floating through time and space

The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge has the theme of Temporary.  If there is anything that might cause me to wax philosophical, this may be it 🙂

Floating on the sea of time, our lives are filled with crests and valleys, with which we can either struggle or accept with grace. How we spend this time shall determine our sense of completeness at the end.  Live it fully, embracing the energy of the universe.

Without this, we can ever be filled with a sense of loss…

In planning this image, I have attempted to place lots of elements together that juxtapose one another, as the ethereal being follows the butterflies into the miasma…  What do you sense in this tableau?

Have a wonderful day!

Passsages of time

The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge has the theme of Temporary.  As I extemporize about this topic, there is at least one more post that I want to share with you.

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, All is temporary, the nature of our existence underscores the very concept of our time being short.  During this time, we get the opportunity to make the most of our lives in how we interact with people and how we appreciate the people that we’re lucky enough to meet.

Today’s photo highlights the very temporary nature of our existence, as I created it on the night that a very dear aunt of mine passed away.  As I went through shooting this image, I felt that there was a transition taking place, of which I learned the following morning, as she lived in the Netherlands.  Connections can be very strong, such that they cause vibrations across an ocean…

Transitions are something that we all will encounter..

This image was created using a long exposure, while rotating the camera and adding some zoom blur through lens rotation.  It still speaks to me today.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Fleeting moments…

Many things in our lives are just temporary, as indeed our lives are just that.  This is probably one of the reasons that, as humans, we are so intrigued, and even enchanted, by those things that extend across the ages.  Measured against our short existence, they stand the test of time, seeing across the ages.  We can wonder what we would have seen, given that much time.

On the other end of the spectrum is the very temporary..

The beauty of the structure of a dandelion head gone to seed is one of delicate construction that is all too temporary, waiting for the next puff of wind!

Hope you enjoyed this little bit of philosophizing and have a wonderful day!
