without wings


without wings, originally uploaded by gawdessness.

The swing is her launchpad
The sand, soft and sliding will be her landing

She flings herself into the air
they all will
and well before I am ready
but I will always try to be nearby

sometimes to help them back up
to brush them off

and sometimes to just let them know that they are not alone.

When I ask to photograph someone, it is because I love the way they look and I think I make that clear. I'm paying them a tremendous compliment. What I'm saying is, I want to take you home with me and look at you for the rest of my life.
