I forgot my camera today (Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting)

This was taken yesterday. :)

This was taken yesterday. 🙂

I forgot my camera today.

I watched two sets of chubby little-kid hands thrust out to get stamped by the lady at the petting zoo admission desk.

I stretched back into the cool grass beside my daughter and marvelled at four nests full of squabbling herons.

I forgot my camera today.

I heard my son’s giggles as he flung broken fish crackers and Baby Mum-Mums into the beaks of greedy ducks because we forgot the duck food.

I played hide and seek behind majestic trees, laughing because my little boy had his bright red hat on the whole time and was so easy to find.

I forgot my camera today.

I saw my daughter’s delight as she brushed old goats, pet baby mice and laughed at squirming piglets.

I smiled as my son argued with another five-year old; both trying to be captain of the playground ship.

I forgot my camera today.

I laughed and laughed when my tiny daughter repeated “doggie poop! doggie poop!” over and over.

I watched my two babies crouch together beside a pond, my son reaching into the murky waters to pass his sister a feather.

My boy and my girl and their two little backs, little arms, side by side, best buds in this fleeting moment.

I forgot my camera today.

  1. This is really lovely!

  2. I love this! I think, sometimes, people (myself included) focus so much on capturing whats happening on camera that they actually miss some things that they would have noticed otherwise. This is a beautiful entry!

  3. Yes, lovely…and they grow out of it so quickly.

  4. Thanks for the pingback. Hope you get back to the petting zoo – with your camera! I think if you’re quick with a camera you don’t actually have to miss what’s going on. I often see details on the computer screen that I missed when I was taking the photos. I love the photo of your little artists!

  5. What a lovely interpretation of theme! 🙂
