“You don’t take a photograph. You ask, quietly, to borrow it.” — Anonymous

Are you a borrower, like me? How do you capture the quiet moments, the ones that might otherwise go unnoticed? And don’t you want a pair of those pink boots?

  1. I don’t take enough pictures of the quiet, unnoticed moments. I think I disrespect them, treat them like pauses between the “real” action. But as I think about them, those still disregarded moments are the story.

  2. Oh I live each of these pictures. These quiet
    Moments. They each speak to me in their own way. I love how the imagery–colors and scenery–affects each quiet moment differently.

    And asking to borrow a photograph? Just lovely.

  3. Your photos are always so incredible in color and just life.

  4. What a wonderful quote! I guess I’m not a good borrower…

    And I adore the look on the man’s face on the bench.

    • That’s my dad. With Bun. Makes my heart all fuzzy to look at it.

  5. That photo of Bun and your Dad made me weep this morning. Just so beautiful. xoxo

  6. So gorgeous. So true. And, yes, those pink boots are amazing.

  7. GREAT quote! Nice collection of photos….and I am a borrower!!

  8. Gorgeous! Candid shots are the way to go.

  9. Yes I want pink boots! I love your photos, I need to learn the art of capturing the quiet moments for sure.

  10. Borrow, not steal? 🙂 Sometimes I feel like I just want to grab every moment for me, me me!!!

  11. Yes the boots, please!!!! Your photos are gorgeous…as always.

  12. These pictures are so evocative, Stacia. Moments you’ll have forever.

  13. oh yes, photos to remember those moments that you can’t put words to until later, much later. lovely!

  14. I am passionate about photography, too. These pictures are so delightful and serene. And I do adore those pink boots.


  15. Not sure why but the tricycles in the snow made me cry. Love these.

  16. Beautiful and so well said. I’m a borrower too – of moments and pieces of the tapestry of life. 🙂

  17. Amazing pictures, amazing quote! Have to share the quote with my photographer dad – he’ll love it, too.

  18. Beautiful pictures! I never think to capture the quiet moments. I always try to take the pictures where someone is kicking and screaming about not wanting their picture taken!

  19. Yes! I am a borrower!! (And I can’t believe how BIG baby is getting!!)

  20. As a photographer I can’t tell you how much I love this!!

  21. I love your pictures!

  22. I’m not very good with the quiet moments. I only remember the camera to commemorate the “memorable”, but the quiet ones are important too aren’t they? Especially when they’re younger, when quiet is never associated with them, perhaps it’s even more memorable to catch them being still…I really have to do that more. Capture the “serenity” 😉

  23. The pink boots, and the wheelhouse, too! Great quote.

  24. Ah…I need to appreciate and capture more of these moments…I’m more likely to say, “say cheese.” But these “borrowed” moments are what reflect real life.

  25. Love the quote! And the photos are beautiful!
