I can't pretent to know much about Wabi-sabi, the japanese aesthetic centred upon the acceptance of transience, but I think this snapshot I took while photographing something completely different has that kind of flavour.

Just as I turned to pick the flowers up to use them as props, the sun came out and cast a beautiful natural spotlight over the flowers. No sooner had I took the shot, the sun went back behind the clouds and the carnations slipped back into shadow.

A full definition of Wabi-sabi can be found here:
