Sunday Citar:A good snapshot stops a moment...

A good snapshot stops a moment from running away. ~Eudora Welty

In this age of ever-present cameras, it seems as though every moment of our lives can be caught and held on to. Many purists hate the cell phone photos... poorly lit, ill focused, overly processed by the many apps available... just not the beauty captured by a true photographer...

But I personally love my oodles of cell phone pics. I take hundreds per month. From the mundane to the funny to the remarkable... I can catch most of the moments of my life instantaneously.

It may be my legs tangled in my daughters as we cuddle on the couch, or a glimpse of Acadia peddling by me just after she has perfected riding her bike, or me delighting in my lobster at a quick beach jaunt with a girlfriend...

The camera is there and it stops a good moment from running away. I can stop every so often, flip through my pictures and remind myself: no matter how banal my moments have seemed, they still contained smiles, color, laughter, comfort... and most of all, pure & simple joy.

Please go visit Tabitha at Fresh Mommy to see some more Sunday Citar and many more moments.


  1. I don't have a cell phone but my camera is always with me. I don't know how we ever lived without digital cameras!

  2. oh my yes...that quote speaks to me...even without a camera, I often will "imprint" things on my memory...conciously keeping every sensation and engaging every sense so I won't forget the important...

  3. Oh I love using my phone as well... always there and handy! These are great, and the quote is quite perfect. It really does capture a moment, it leaves us a part of it that we can hold onto forever. Great post! :)
