Monique and I wish all of our Midweek Moment readers a joyous Christmas and a safe end to 2015. We’ll be back in the New Year with more moments and photos.

Thank you all for reading, liking, and commenting on these posts, and for enjoying our moments as much as we enjoy posting them. For us, that’s what photography is about—capturing a moment before it disappears, after which, it can never disappear.

Often, too, a photo captures not only a moment or an occasion, but a feeling—the delight at a garden flower in bloom, the love for a salivating dog, or the peace of candlelight at the end of a year. A visual and an emotional reminder of moments, of the world, of each other.

A record. An etching. Our little place in history.

Take care, everyone.


from me, and


from Monique.


Midweek Moment is a weekly photographic project in which Monique Mulligan and I team up to share our favourite photos on our websites. It’s a way of stretching ourselves creatively and a nice distraction from writing. Click here for more of our Moments.
