Back to nature


Jasper snatched the shovel from Amee and started backfilling the hole she’d dug earlier.

She chewed the inside of her cheek, biting off the words simmering in her mouth.

Jasper handed her back the shovel, ignoring her peeved expression.

“I had it,” Amee finally said.

“Sure, and with more practice, you’ll be great,” Jasper said. “Just not yet.”

“I don’t have to do everything just like you,” she said, stabbing the ground with the tip of the shovel.

“True, but when burying a body, you’ve got to make it look natural and not just pile dirt back in a hole.”

Inspiration: Practice

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.
