Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moment

Fleeting- lasting for a very short time. 

Laura’s 21st birthday.

August 2004.

We stopped in Klavon’s Ice Cream Parlor , originally a Pharmacy in the 1920’s, in the Strip District -Pittsburgh, on Saturday afternoon.  (You might remember Laura as a bride last November and then the recent wedding photos  6 months later.)

The proprietor held a candle for her as she blew it out. Aunt Mary looked on.  A fleeting moment. 

For past challenges I have listed everyone and then some pingbacks were getting sent to their spam.

I will add the ones I have received so far and hopefully none go to their spam.

    Beautiful picture – seems everything having to do with our children is fleeting.
