I was shopping with a dear friend and my mind was not on photography in the least little bit but something caught my eye as we walked by a little stream that flows under the road in the town center.
The rapidly moving water was not frozen but along the edge there were strings of these exquisite frozen drops...like jewels on a necklace. I simply had to stop and photograph them!
This is the definition of what a moment of common enchantment is for me. It is an instance where you are brought up suddenly by an unexpected sight. I love the phrase, "...it caught my eye". For truly, these tiny intrusions into our life catch us unaware. We do well to stop and allow ourselves to be transfixed, even for a brief time.
