The Portrait by jotography


by candle light
i sit and wait
for something to arrive

not sure when
or how
but i know
i’ll feel

shawdowed pools of darkness
round about me lay
stoic in their vigil
of keeping fools at bay

mean time in the quiet
when whispers seem a shout
i’ll breathe in
the void around me
and let the demons out

    With these words by butch kept in my head, I took the portrait. It was the one shot, handheld. It was the moment, not a sec too soon nor a sec too late. In this portrait, a special shock presented itself to me – that I have photographed not one, but two persons in here.

    Once again, thank you so much everyone.

    Thank you butchart!
