Capturing a Moment

Myakka GroveTrying to “capture a moment” is a lot like “saving time.” We frequently use these expressions but, honestly, neither can be done. The best we can hope for is the illusion of achievement.  Photography is perhaps the best tool in this art of illusion.  Pictures give us the sense of freezing moments in time and their evocative nature often succeeds in transporting us back in our memories and resurrecting “that feeling.”

There is a particular grove of oak trees at Myakka River State Park.  It is pictured here. I yearn to capture the beauty of it with my camera and have taken countless pictures there. It is simply magnificent, no matter the time of year or the time of day.  It seems particularly gorgeous in its spring glory.  So I share this illusion with you, this moment of time captured in bits and bytes.  Happy spring everyone. ☙
