Moments that Were Caught

I’d say that after taking lots of photos I have developed something that might be described as a “frame vision”. I’ve been catching myself looking at something and then thinking – that would make a brilliant photo! But guess what, most of the time during such insights I’m nowhere near my camera. Call it sods law or, even better, blame me for not dragging that thing everywhere I go, but I agree myself that sometimes I loose moments that I’d like to share and keep in digital form or on paper forever!

It seems that just the other day I looked at some lilacs and decided that these would look good with the bright blue sky as a background. I think I had more than a week to take that photo (the sky can’t have been grey for the whole week as it’s summer and that lilac grows just the other side of our gate), well, I lost the opportunity as the blossoms have died down…

So that is why these little images are moments that I MANAGED to catch this June before they disappeared. It’s our crab apple tree in full bloom, my dog spying on the busy bees, our first BBQ this year, a duck diving in the river and the very white tip of one of my cats’ tail.

Those are some beautiful pictures! The horse is stunning. It makes me wish I could ride.

I like these a lot -- your compositions are so very nice, drawing the eye.

Thank you girls for your comments.

Julia - even if you can't ride, you can still invent a story about the Lithuanian horse, let's say called Jonas (as St. Johns day is just round the corner).
