Weekly Photo Challenge: Ephemeral

The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge theme this week is “Ephemeral.”

My shadow is the subject of a once in eternity photograph…an “ephemeral” moment in time that will never be repeated.


Realistically I can never capture this moment each year at the same day, hour, minute down to the split second to recreate the exact sun angle. In a year I will likely lose or gain weight so my silhouette will change. I doubt if I can stand in the exact same spot, assume the same posture, be sure of the makeup and hang of my clothes, have the same haircut, or hold the camera at the same spot and angle.

I may not even be alive on the yearly anniversary of the picture.

  2. We will absolutely expect you to be here for the anniversary shot! What a great thing to do with grandchildren on their birthday each year- a great idea for a family custom 😉
