My Story of Moments - A You Capture Edition

What is a photograph?

What is it really?

It's a moment.

So when I saw that this week's You Capture theme was MOMENTS, I was all, okay. Yeah. But ALL photographs are moments.

But as I thought more about it, of course I realized that some photographs tell the story of a moment better than others.

And that's what makes a photograph captivating for me.

The story of a moment.

I have to be honest. I did not keep this theme in my mind all week as I picked up my camera to photograph. I didn't really have the brain space to do it. We spent the weekend at Disneyland and wow, talk about over-stimulation.

But in between the chaos of all of the typical Disney-posed shots with characters, there were moments that I will remember forever.

As we waited in line to meet the fairies at Pixie Hollow, there was a stream of water shooting over the path where we stood. The kids started anticipating the water coming and splashing them. And I could not get enough of the moment when the water hit.

And at Disney Playhouse Live, my little boy's outstretched arms hoping to catch some
bubbles just makes my heart burst with love.

  9. That bubble shot is amazing - and the related text is heartwarming. 14 years ago, we took our boys to The Big Red Boat and then DisneyWorld. All I can say is, digital cameras make a WORLD of difference in our lives now - that we don't really realize, yet.

    Thank you - for sharing yours.
