Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moment

Today’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge asks us to Share a picture that captures a fleeting moment on the street!  For full details check out the post HERE.

We have a Farmers Market every Saturday morning here in Penticton.  Last Saturday, they had a drum band in the middle of the market.  Young and old, novice and experienced drummers were making rhythms for one Saturday only.  I took this photo of a young boy attempting to join in.  He was watching the leader of the group very closely and how the man used his drum sticks.

It was a wonderful moment when the boy showed no inhibitions but just a desire to risk and try.  How long will it be before that boy no longer dares to try new things for fear of looking stupid?

Moments like these are fleeting.

  4. Very cute! I like this one.

    • It is isn’t it? The boy was just totally focused on watching what the leader was doing. Dad was standing nearby but didn’t intervene. I think his attitude was “Go for it, son.”

  5. Perfect for the theme–love the story and the photo.

  8. Love the image Kate…the tilt really gives it added movement

    • Thank you Jo. I liked the idea of tilting the photo but it came about by accident because I couldn’t get all the drums in the photo otherwise. Sometimes, needs must and it works out better than expected.
