why an elephant?


why an elephant?, originally uploaded by gawdessness.

on our oldest daughter's thirteenth birthday
we gave her a chain with a gold dragon pendant on it
because she is tough, and fiery like one and beautiful and magical
today our youngest son turned thirteen and received a golden elephant to mark his passage into teenagehood
because elephants have long been associated with never forgetting and strong family bonds
and they are rare and very precious
just like our boy

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.
