Photo Taking

I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung over at our Five Minute Friday website. This week’s word prompt is “take.” We would love to have you join us.

A few years ago my friend gifted me with a camera. I forgot how much I loved every taking photos. There is something about taking photos and trying to capture a moment in time.

Camera in hand, my friend and I walk around Lily Lake. I see so much of God’s creation. I capture a duck butt as he dives into the lake. We spot a moose off in the distance. I see several ducks sunbathing. The mountains are covered in the splendor of snow. Wild flowers of various shapes and colors are all around. It’s the glory of Colorado.

Hues of reds, oranges and yellows cascade across the sky as the sun sets. The amber waves of grain glisten against the sun. The bright yellow of sunflowers can be seen for miles. It’s the beauty of North Dakota at her best.

What do you like to capture? (And for those who saw my FB post, my photos were sent off to be entered in the ND State Fair!) o

  1. I love taking pictures of my children and their creations. These creations could be tall LEGO towers, beautiful self-portraits, or delicious homemade cookies. Thank you for sharing your love of photography with us.

  2. I would love to take better photos! The creativity seems so enjoyable!! I take way too many pictures of flowers!!:)

  3. For years I tried to catch ahold
    of each moment’s fading ember.
    Photographs, the stories told;
    but it’s better to remember.
    I tried to catch the bright-fast smiles
    and the things the gestures said,
    but now, across the years and miles
    too many friends are dead.
    The album sits so quietly
    and I can’t quite bear to look
    and relive the heartache tragedy
    of the pictures that I took.
    So now I let the moments go
    for God to save, and for Him to know.
