California – Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting

Here is my answer to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting. There are moments when great beauty or great fascination arrive and depart in an instant. The goal this week, is to capture those moments. These are some of the moments I found in Newport Beach, California.

I took about 50 pics of these seals until I got the right one.

I am fascinated by waves. Always impermanent, never the same.

After taking all these photos, a Cuba Libre before me exists for a fleeting moment.

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.
