Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moment

Posted on Updated on

This week’s photo challenge is fleeting moment. What exactly is a fleeting moment? It is basically a candid snapshot  or public place. The Daily Post did a spotlight on street photography a few days ago which can be viewed here: street-photography. I attempted taking candid photos around my neighborhood, but I felt somewhat like a stalker. These are the fleeting moments I captured.

I traveled to China a few years ago and captured many more fleeting moments, because I already looked out of place. It didn’t appear quite so odd to be taking photos of random activity.

      I had difficulties picking just one fleeting moment from the many I saw while in China. Thanks for your comment.

      It appeared so out of place to me, but normal practice in China. Thanks for your comment.

      I couldn’t believe how close I was when I took the photo of the woman. Thank god, my camera doesn’t make a sound when I click. Thanks for your comment.

        Well mine was (and still is) in Mumbai,India and it is really amusing to see to cities so wide apart geographically and yet so similar culturally…:-D

        Well mine was (and still is) in Mumbai,India and it is really amusing to see two cities so wide apart geographically and yet so similar culturally…:-D

          Yes, we often don’t realize how similar people really are in this vast world. Thanks for your kind comments.

    I love your selection of photos. I was tempted to make some of mine in black and white but ending up staying in color. Beautiful!

      Well, when the Daily Post highlighted fleeting moments and street photography it was all in B&W, so I assumed the best photos were taken that way. I’m glad you enjoy. Thanks for your comment.

      Thanks, it took me a moment to realize what exactly a ‘fleeting moment’ is.

        In any case, there is always artistic license.

    Love the one of the men playing cards. It reminds me of my little old neighbor who sits on the square with his buddies every night. Adorable!

      Yes, they were all very focused as they played the game. I saw people playing games quite often in the park. Thanks for visiting.
