Time Lapse

A blog post can be a capsule in time, a story that stops time in its tracks, allowing the reader to explore that moment.

In 2008, my husband and I photographed the moon eclipsing the sun. We were in the Pacific Northwest outside of Gaston, Oregon, near Portland.

As we stood there in the freezing winter cold, I thought about one of my favorite discussions on photography, and how it is the closest we’ve come yet to time travel. In a photograph, you can literally stop time, freeze a moment in time.

Your blog is the same. In a single blog post, you can freeze a moment in time. You can put the magnifier on a moment and make it last for the reader.

Think about how you can bring in all the senses and sensations associated with the moment you are writing about to fully include the reader.
