One of the challenges of
photography is to catch the ephemeral: the brief moment that
shimmers in light or shadow and just as quickly disappears.
Ephemeral images haunt us in a glowing flash of sunrise, an
indelible expression, passing shadows, or reflections that glaze
and enliven an image. They are gone almost before we
recognize them. This month's challenge is to find and share
that instant we call "ephemeral."
This month's City Daily Photo
theme comes from
Sequim Daily Photo in Washington State. Sequim Daily
Photo was begun in 2006 by "Lavender Lady" Norma, who posted for
three years. Shannon posted for one year. Kay is the
third Sequim Daily Photo blogger and has been posting since August
2011. She is a retired administrator with a background in
environmental and noncredit community education. Her
photographs and blogging express her varied interests and curiosity
about the world around her.
Sequim is a small rural community
on the Olympic Peninsula in western Washington. Adjacent to
Olympic National Park, it is favored with recreational
opportunities from hiking and biking to boating and fishing in
nearby lakes and rivers or the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Native
peoples lived in the region for thousands of years before western
settlers arrived. In the mid-1800s farmers and loggers came.
The community today includes
descendants of original native peoples and pioneers, farmers, and
newcomers who have found in Sequim an ideal place to raise a family
or retire. Scenic lavender fields share Sequim’s local landscape
with traditional agriculture, housing, and a small commercial
