Welcome to the carnival!

This blog carnival is all about pictures. Life rushes by us all in a torrent of moments. Taking a photograph is nothing more than capturing one of those fleeting moments as it goes by. It’s taking a handful of water from a fast running stream. Look into it closely enough and you can see yourself.

Many thanks to all of those who shared their preserved moments for this photography carnival. Special thanks to The Success Coach at For Your Success for sponsoring the carnival.

Thanks also to Kilroy_60 for getting this entire series of carnivals started. It’s been a pleasure acting as your host.

Take some time to visit each blog listed below and be sure to let them know you saw their posts on the GONZO Photography Carnival.

So without further ado, here are the moments of time you’ve chosen to share:

Wanted to drop a note of thanks to you for hosting the carnival.

I saw a lot of great photographs; I'm extending the carnival experience getting around to write comments.

You have helped spark my passion to start shooting again!

Wondering if you may have one more spot in the "Returning The Favor" portion of your link list?

Thanks again for everything, James!

Look forward to you joining in on the next carnival. I think it's a theme that will work well for you. 8-)
