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.

These two of Claire were taken just a split moment apart.

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

    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.
