Mainly West of Queen Street - seen through my lens

From Inside

The City Daily Photo theme for November is “Ephemeral”. As in “lacks duration”, “whoosh – it’s all over”. Just look at fashion, or – well many more possible interpretations can be found here.

My take on the theme is a look out the window on a day of rain and hail, with melting bits of hail sliding down the pane and vanishing along the way.

And in taking the picture, the transient became permanent – you have to use your imagination to see how ephemeral this is …

    Hail is certainly one of those things that’s quite brief in its time on the ground.

    Good for theme day.

    I like that Paul – in taking the photograph the transient becomes permanent.

    Great interpretation…and I like your taking it a step further, “the transient became permanent.”

    Too early in the morning for all this existential stuff, Paul. Great image. Very Gerhard Richter-esque

    I can nearly hear the sound of this 🙂
    A nice theme day image.
    I like it in b/w.
