Weekly Photo Challenge: TRANSIENT

The theme of this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is TRANSIENT.

I have usually understood the word to mean something or someone moving from one place or condition to another. What could be a better example than the water from the rains or springs, gathering in the hills above, then moving slowly or swiftly down a North Carolina mountain stream.

    How true! I realized that I am always taking photos and videos of bodies of water. The movement, the sound, the rush, the power — a true model of transience. Delightful description.

    I love this sound and seeing the water rushing by is so cooling even if I can’t touch it.
