Tuesday’s Photography 101 theme is “Moment”.

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?

My kids are 16 and 14. Precious moment kid photos don’t apply. The facilitator assumes we’re all moms with toddlers at our feet. I don’t commute on the subway. I’m starting to see a pattern. I think Cheri Lucas Rowlands lives in a crowded metropolitan city in a warm tropical climate. I don’t think she can understands that some of use may live in small towns where the air temperature has plunged below freezing and animals (and humans) aren’t spending much time outdoors.

In any case, another one from the archive. What can be more fleeting than the few seconds when fireworks ripped the air and illuminate the sky.
