marsh boardwalk

End of the trail


The boardwalk zig-zagged through the titi forest, high above a saw palmetto marsh. Dragonflies hummed through the humid air and green anoles skittered from shadow to shadow seeking refuge from the blistering sun.

With luck, she would have the trails to herself. The park was merely a bump in the road, hidden from plain view unless you knew where to look. She chose it because of its obscurity. She would need freedom from interference.

She strolled to the end of the walkway where it extended out over the bayou.

This would do she thought. No one will find the body.

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. love this – the twist at the end . . . and, to be really creepy, I read a news article today about sneakers being found on beaches – always the right shoe and always with a separated foot inside. Are you sure you dumped the whole body?
