Many thanks to all of you who took part on Friday or stopped by to leave comments. It's been great to see everyone's 'moment in time', even if Carrie missed it by twenty minutes. In view of what she found, photographed and emailed to me (click to see a bigger image), all is forgiven :)
As I suspected, lunch featured heavily on the menu. You've already seen my cookathon in progress: however, I do need to tell you that such scenes of domesticity are rare, just in case you were worried. Patient Gardener made me hungry all over again with her pictured chicken noodle soup. Luckily she's given us the recipe too. Karen at Artist's Garden was at lunch in glorious surroundings and found perfect happiness in her moment. Greenwalks Karen was at a restaurant and cleverly involved her companions in both choosing the shot and being her subjects. Constant Gardener was serving a lunch-wrapped pill to her faithful companion whilst Elizabethm had some tricky lunchtime manoeuvres to make involving hot bread, cats, a ringing telephone and greeting a neighbour, so it's no wonder she couldn't fit in taking a photograph!
Juliet mused about time and teased us a little by getting us to find which of her photographs was taken at the right moment. Weeping Sore 'fessed up to missing the moment entirely whilst trying to photograph the atomic clock, but Gerald came up with the goods by finding a splendid clock moment on Geograph for us.
It's always good to meet some of you on here for the first time like Jill-O and 3C - welcome! Jill-O found the perfect Monet bridge in Michigan and Linda confessed to being asleep at the exact moment, but showed us a most tempting shot afterwards of where she'd been lying. Sadly Anna was travelling at the time, trying to find Tiverton Parkway, so couldn't join us. 3C's contribution also involved a journey, to the same place that coincidentally I also featured last Friday on my photography blog. However, my image was taken at a different day and time.
Allotments also featured. Deb at Carrots and Kids treated us to a fantastic group photograph and a delicious account of its taking. Like Deb, Happy Mouffetard's story also involved nettles as she was tackling them on her allotment at the time. In view of this, it's probably just as well she forgot her camera: I suspect she avoided a few stings by doing so.
I confess to having one that got away: Maggi also joined in, but at the moment her blog doesn't appear to be showing her post. Update: It's sorted and her inspiring post is here. Of course, I may have missed others. Do let me know and I'll make sure this piece gets updated.
Whilst we all took pictures of or just thought about our daily lives, I believe the results were far from ordinary. What comes across are thoughtful, invigorating commentaries which you probably wouldn't usually tell us about. I've enjoyed each and every one of your posts and comments :)
