An early morning began with the intent to get in some sunset images on a full frame body I was trying out. But I am a people person, and as we progressed throughout the afternoon, I asked my wife and daughter to join in. When they said sure, I thought getting my daughters dance team sister in the mix would be a great idea too! Little did I know that we all would be so taken with the images we created. But after all, that is always the end goal, right?
One image in particular struck a nerve for all of us, and when I shared it with her mom, one of her close friends, who just happens to be a writer, commented on it. Having previously collaborated with her on an image I asked her if she would be willing to have a go at this one.
The words were inspired by this image:
A blazing orange sunset
visits the shore.
Sun-drenched love from sea depths
kisses the chin of grace.
Pointed toes and sculpted limbs
adorn the beach
with the beauty of balance.
The audience to this sand ballet
is the surface of the sea itself –
reflecting back to the shore
a dance of freedom.
Color melts from the sky
in hues of caramel and mango.
The body moves to the rhythm
of storied waves and unfinished tales.
There is so much still to be written
with each fluid movement
of arched back
and essence reaching to the sky

This is our second collaboration together and if our children and mother nature are willing, we will create some more art in the future. If you would like to read the first one it can be viewed here.
Thanks for stopping by!
