Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting

Fireworks over the Thames, New Year's Eve 2010.

Fireworks over the Thames, New Year’s Eve 2010.

I chose this photo for this week’s photo challenge as I felt it summed up this week’s theme perfectly in a number of ways. Firstly, fireworks by their very nature are fleeting, lighting up the sky for the briefest of moments – they are also SO difficult to try and capture…I was so happy with this picture, everything was in focus! šŸ˜€ Secondly, I also think you can call New Year’s Eve fleeting. It’s one day a year and the year you are saying goodbye to is never repeated. It’s also the one night a year that one single fleeting moment, midnight, means so much to so many.
