The Creative Act

The creative act lasts but a brief moment,
a lightning instant of give-and-take,

just long enough for you
to level the camera and

to trap the fleeting prey
in your little box. 

~Henri Cartier Bresson

Wonderful blooms. Levelling the camera takes me an age, but then my photos aren't what one would call creative, yet.

I love these shots - and am aching for spring and adventure. My creative juices are running, but no place to go!

Thank you for participating in my "transportation" competition prep - your package will be in the mail next week! Enjoy!
