Weekly Photo Challenge … Ephemeral

I work in the Special collections department of the University of Reading. I am in the business of preserving books, also ephemera; the other materials that are connected with the books and their publication.  Stuff, that is considered temporary some even worthless, letters, documents, leaflets, brochures, piles of papers are catalogued, and archived in carefully monitored conditions. Nothing is considered ephemeral.  So on on one hand I work hard at keeping stuff and on the other I truly believe that nothing even the most robust have no lasting qualities; no matter how precious.

To enjoy the moment is preferable even if it is during the tea break or coffee break! Because for sure that is not lasting.
