In the Moment seventh decade through the lens
Marc McElhaney


This is a book about my journey through my "seventh decade". When I found myself at the age of 60 with my health relatively intact, I made a couple of resolutions, to re-engage in two long dormant passions for both travel and photography. This is primarily a portfolio of 56 selected images from the photos that I have taken in over 30 countries during these past 10 years, but also with some commentary about my experiences and about the process itself, that reflects my life's journey. My goal was to seek and capture that sometimes mysterious moment that speaks to the profound within the ordinary, and to present it in a way that hopefully speaks to the universal choreography of human behavior. Before it disappears. 

On this page, I have captured some random pages of the book below. If you wish to purchase it, there is a Hardcover (with dust jacket) version and a Softcover version, both prepared with the "coffee table" in mind. I recommend the hardcover, but I created the softcover as a less costly alternative. I am offering this basically at my printing cost. Costs are as follows:
Hardcover versions (each): $89 + $7 shipping = $96
Softcover versions (each): $53 + $7 shipping = $60
