I Had to Look This One Up!


I'll admit that for the Weekly Photo Challenge I had to look up the word "ephemeral" and when I did found this:  "something short-lived, lasting but a moment".  The first pictures that came to mind were the ones taken of me rather than by me.  These two are among some of my recent favorites and … Continue reading I Had to Look This One Up!
