FSO - Frozen in time

I used to not like these challenges where I have to think a bit.  I really do like life to be easy with no difficult decisions.  So having to think about the weekly FSO topic is not always welcome because I'm not as creative in my thinking as some others are.  But I've come to realize that my way of thinking is what makes me uniquely ME so what the hell if others don't think the same way?

I started thinking last weekend.  Frozen.  Nah, nothing freezes around here at the worst of times, let along in the height of summer.  So I'm going with the concept that every photograph is the freezing in time of something.  And I set about trying to capture just one second, frozen in time, a few special moments.

Don't ask me why anyone would want to drop a strawberry into a jug of water....strawberries are plentiful, and cheap... and I can eat them after I've finished playing with them; water is my latest obsession;  it was hot, and cooling to play with water.  I could go on.   


 

These aren't as sharp and crisp as I would have liked, but other than that I more or less achieved (a bit more than less) what I set out to do and I'm chuffed.  I'll savour this moment ... freeze it in time!

I'll be away this weekend but will catch up with all the participants as soon as I can.  They will be here.

  1. I love the idea that,"...that every photograph is the freezing in time of something." It's true and so, these are perfect "frozen" photos. We who take photos and look at everything through a lens are always freezing life. It doesn't have to be snow or icicles. It is life... frozen in time.
    Good post and I love the photos. Save me some strawberries.

  4. At first glance at your pictures (before reading) I thought you'd taken it a step further and put the jug in the freezer... ;)

  5. I really like that first one - kind of makes you take pause to realize what you're looking at. Great 'frozen' motion shot!

  6. You're so right. This should have been the easiest FSO of all because every photo is a frozen moment, absolutely. That strawberry looks delicious.

  10. This is a creative take on the theme and you can recycle the strawberries afterward. Nice job.

  11. You say that you don't necessarily want to think about FSO topics. The ideas you produce are , so far as I can tell, original, natural and good photography. So it comes down the fact that this is all natural to you. I've always said that you had natural talent with people so now I can extend that to ideas as well.

  13. chuffed? now that must be a word frozen in time. and yes the idea of the photos is just as creative as many I've seen...
    Had to look up your word: 1. chuffed. To be very pleased, proud or happy with yourself. I just scored free tickets to the gig, I'm well chuffed!
    Sounds VERY British.
    yes Savor the moments.... all of them.

  15. Well that is very creative. I LOVE it! Thanks for being you and not worrying about other's interpretation. If you try this with seltzer water....you'll love the results. All the little bubbles make it delicious.
