Picture for One Moment

Do you recall those "memes" where people tagged you and you could play along in any number of ways? Well, they're now appearing on Facebook and this time, I'm not participating!  Once in a while, it's a fun thing to do, if it's of interest but once these things gain a momentum, bloggers are bombarded with them and it's nothing but a nuisance.

In case you've not caught on, photo memes and what I call themed memes, work differently. A blogger thinks of a theme for photo subjects or for personal interpretation through writing, poetry, artwork or whatever other creative way he or she chooses. The entries are then linked on the host's blog through Mr. Linky. Those are the ones I love. You can choose whether or not to participate, there is no obligation and it's fun and rewarding to see what people make of the particular theme or category. 

On my photo blog The Pagan's Eye I've started my own feature called Picture for One Moment. I don't plan on using Mr. Linky on it, but if people see it, they can participate on their own blogs and play along. There are no rules. I'm calling it a "mememe" because it really is about one image that I choose for lots of reasons for no reason at all. My friend Linda of Vulture Peak Muse, has gone ahead to play it. Great stuff, Linda!

I'm now bringing this same idea to The Pagan Sphinx. Every once in a while you'll see the title Picture for One Moment and in it will be an image that caught my eye - either my own photograph, someone else's (with permission) or an artwork image. Sometimes there will be information and links, other times I may include very little; leaving it up to the eyes of the beholder to interpret or click off; enjoy or furrow their brow.  ;-)

Picture for One Moment is that of a creation by contemporary British artist Tracey Emin. This is not my photograph and I honestly don't recall where I found it.

  1. Very striking and powerful. Offputting at first but I stuck with it for a little and studied and thought on it.

  2. That's an interesting piece. It's very in your face but it made me pay attention to the details.

    I find it really interesting and, in its own way, quite beautiful
