Transient and fleeting.  A part of history as soon as they become the present.  Sometimes only captured by the mind’s eye and quickly faded into dim memories.

  1. The blue-ringed dancer has a ‘title’ to match her lapidary beauty. And Argia Sedula sounds like a name drawn from the cast list of Babylon 5!

    Ravishing photographs Jason. The blue behind that seagull has me flying.

  2. Gorgeous shots, Jason! I don’t know if there is an acronym for “squealing out loud” – but that was my reaction to that fantastic, saturated blue in the blue-ringed dancer. OMG, I LOVE that color.
