Morning companion

sunrise over the bay

The air was still, a hush so profound I could hear the whoosh of my heart beating. A shimmer of gold spread over the surface of the bay as the sun slowly rose above the tree line on the opposite shore.

I sat atop the seawall, gently blowing on my hot tea, waiting for the day to begin.

Out of the corner of my eye, I saw her. An elegant aviatrix, flying low, trailing a wingtip in the golden sea. I watched as she skimmed the water, never lifting that wing, never making a sound. It was as if she knew I was there and didn’t want to disturb my meditation.

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.

  1. I absolutely love the image of the morning wind blowing on your tea. It calmed me immediately. What a gorgeous image you set.
