1. Lasting for a very short time….
Ephemeral for me this week is about travel. You wait so long preparing and saving for those few short weeks away then they are gone and back to reality. One such trip was in 2013 when we visited the Loire Valley in France.
At this time my sister had decided to give me a balloon ride for my birthday so with our friend Toni, we arrived ready for our ride. We were going to float over the renowned Chenonceau Castle. We had to wait for a long time waiting for a decision whether to go or cancel, when the winds dropped and we were away.
It happened so quickly, one minute on the ground and the next up, up and away. I had to find my feet for a second or two then looked around and saw the castle before me in all its grandeur with a birds eye view that not many get to see. Out came the camera and with a couple of quick shots it was gone… how lucky were we to be travelling this magnificent country but also to be viewing this castle from the air.
Fleeting in sight but for ever in my memory.
