My take on the latest Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting.
“Share a photo of what fleeting means to you – Observing nature and capturing a quiet, special moment, experimenting with shots of movement, taking a snapshot of someone deep in thought”
I saw the theme for this week’s photo challenge and I realized there are so many moments in my life that I can share in one post. The latest one from a one-day trip we took to Nami Island.
I had shared a glimpse of my trip in Weekly Photo Challenge – Escape where I talked about my tendency to sometimes plan and dream about a future event while missing on my present.
For this trip also, I kept planning on – things I’d do, the places I’d visit, the photos I wanted to click and the route I wanted to take – for about a month. And in that one month, I missed living my everyday special moments completely.
The irony is, that trip ended, in one day. I was really disappointed in how quickly it all happened. Another thing that bothered me was that in my attempt to cover most landmarks, I spent most of my day in worrying about not being able to cover the landmarks. What a shame!
I totally missed the ‘Live in the present’ thing. That day when I came back, I decided I didn’t want to live in the future or the past.
Here is a moment captured near a fountain close to the shore of the island where I went immediately after taking the zip-wire. I captured it in my camera but I do not remember observing it properly.
I was too engrossed in my ‘What to cover in Nami Island’ checklist. To be honest, I don’t even remember seeing it. I recognized the zip-wire in the background and guessed the location (eek! )
I don’t know how many such moments in my life have gone without even acknowledging them.
Which makes me question – How much life have I really lived?
I hope you like my interpretation of this photography challenge.
