{This Moment} – 8 June 2012

A Friday ritual. A single photo capturing a moment. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.


If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy,
if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you,
if the simple things in nature have a message you understand,
Rejoice, for your soul is alive.
– Eleanora Duse

{This Moment} is a ritual found on Soule Mama which was introduced to me by Sarah-Jane of Samuel Michaels Photography. If you find yourself touched by a Moment and would like to participate, post your picture on a Friday and leave your link in the comments section.

Today’s moment is dedicated to my clever friend Rachel Hoyt and her friend Pokey because that’s who I thought of when I clicked this picture! 🙂

May you be inspired – every day!

    Dear Corinne,
    I have always loved sky photos. When I first saw this a couple of days ago, I could have sworn I saw a dragon in the sky! I thought perhaps it was just my eyes playing tricks because I did look at it at a time when I should have been sleeping. Coming back to comment today, I STILL see a dragon. (LOL) It’s amazing that we all see the same sky, but our interpretations of what we actually SEE can be so varied. Good capture all the same. Thanks for sharing.

      I guess it’s all a matter of what we see first, Andy. Sometimes it’s difficult to shake off first impressions 🙂 Thank you for sharing the pic on G+ too.

    Yey! I saw that one too 😉

       @MelissaTandoc Ah – in your part of the world or on my blog? 😉

    So beautiful!  It’s amazing to me, sometimes, that we all look at the same sky, even if we’re half a world away!

       @femmefrugality That’s something that always amazes me too, Brynne and makes me think of how connected we are.

    Nice Corinne.  I’ve been accused of having my head in the clouds because I love looking at the sky.  

    • CorinneRodrigues CorinneRodrigues June 13, 2012

       @Myrna I’m an avid sky-watcher too. But no one can accuse me of having my head in the clouds for fear that they’ll have my foot on their behind 😉

    I see a woman with a long dress, holding a baby and running away

    • CorinneRodrigues CorinneRodrigues June 13, 2012

       @nikky44 I’m trying to see what you see……hmmm…no I don’t see her. But I’m fascinated with your comment.

    This realllllyyy does look like a turtle, Corinne.. And I always always click clouds when travelling and I also have this silly habit of trying to look for shapes in them. 🙂

  8. JimBrandano JimBrandano June 9, 2012

    I love photographing clouds. This does remind me of a turtle. umm I don’t need anymore competition Corrine!!!!  🙂

    • CorinneRodrigues CorinneRodrigues June 13, 2012

       @JimBrandano Thanks, Jim. You made my week –  even if you were just being nice! 🙂

    I love it! It looks like an arm, my kids would love to play guess the cloud shape with this!

  10. marthaorlando marthaorlando June 9, 2012

    Yes!  A turtle in the sky!  I love cloud pictures and still look to see shapes in them.
    Terrific moment, Corinne!

    • CorinneRodrigues CorinneRodrigues June 9, 2012

       @marthaorlando Cloud watching is still one of my favorite pastimes.

    • CorinneRodrigues CorinneRodrigues June 9, 2012

       @DangerousLinda Yes, I see that too – it’s just that I couldn’t get Rachel’s Pokey out of my mind 😉

  11. Amy Amy June 8, 2012

    Love it…. Beautiful capture!

    Oh, and I concur!

    This picture reminded me of my childhood you know I used to spent hours together staring out of the window giving names and creating stories out of the various shapes of clouds in the sky.
    Lovely pic!

    • CorinneRodrigues CorinneRodrigues June 9, 2012

       @privytrifles I still love looking at the clouds, but didn’t do the story thing – how interesting.
