London, ON, August 2006
A common picture of a common flower being visited by a common housefly. Yet somehow I've kept it in my archives for the past couple of years because I remember sitting on a friend's deck for at least 15 minutes wondering why this fly wasn't flying away. And for some silly reason, I didn't want to lose the thought to oblivion.
Stupid, I know.
As I continue to meander through this journey called life, I'm learning, albeit slowly, that I don't always need to take pictures because they're mind-blowingly spectacular. Or because there needs to be some rational reason for doing so. Sometimes, it's enough to take a picture to remember a moment.

About last week's moldy cheese pic: It isn't often that you encounter a full-on biology experiment in the cheese section of your local grocery store. So when it happens, I hope you'll have your camera at the ready. I'm glad I did. This week's honorable menschens include:
- Thumper: "It's not easy turning green..."
- Moments in time: "Growing mould gracefully."
- Terri: "Blue cheese special."
- Mojo: "Spore Loser."
- Judy: Goldy Moldy.
Your turn: As we share floral photos this week, I hope you'll pull one out that isn't necessarily perfect, but it evokes a memory, however mundane, that you don't want to lose. If you're just joining the scary-nutty world of Thematic Photographic, please head over here.
