A Moment in Time: Starting at Midnight

Sarah, Molly and I have started a new photo challenge for 2014. It's been far too long since I posted on the blog and used my DSLR, so I'm excited to do this. For our theme this year, we came up with A Moment in Time.

We'll be posting 24 images, one for each hour of the day, taking a new image two times per month. I've also decided to post all black and white images, to connect back to what first interested me about photography when at 13 I received my Pentax SLR and started developing film and prints in Junior High. I hope you enjoy the series.

To see what Sarah and Molly are up to, here are their blogs. I've also included their images below.

But it does fit this definition from Eric Kim in that it's candid and it's in a public place: I also appreciate his final point: "Definitions, shmefinitions... I recommend giving the middle finger to definitions--and not worrying about it. Who cares what people classify your type of photography to be? As long as you enjoy the photos you are taking--isn't that enough?" This image is from a dance recital I attended recently while visiting friends whose three daughters all performed in many magical ways. This sweet moment was captured during the finale when all the dancers return back on stage to be honored for their hard work throughout the year. You can see how much the littles love the older dancers and how much they
