the light grows dim

as if tomorrow and yesterday

are fused together

 

indecision tarries there

 

the saints and sinners

clasp hands

in a union that is too little

and far too late

 

the answers are faded

platitudes and the questions remain

unanswered

 

a solitary plight rocks the nation

and the ripples reach far

into other lands

the vested fools know nothing

and the unblemished

never had a chance

 

And so the river rages

While the wind and the rain; tear at each other’s throats

In the end we’ll all be

Swept away

 

And when the waters recede

They’ll survey the changed terrain

and the finger pointing

will start

          again

THE EDGE OF INNOCENCE...

Pure laughter

Full of innocence

Ringing with

…remembered possibility

 

Unfettered; our hearts soar

…with simplicities promise

Secure; in the knowledge

That hope, is real

PHOTOGRAPHERS, PHOTOS, FILM, AND PHOTOJOURNALISTS, AND THEIR SUBJECTS ARE WORTH THEIR WEIGHT IN GOLD, LENSES, FOCUS, APERTURE SIZE AND SPEED SPEAK OF TECHNIQUE AND THE ATMOSPHERIC PROPERTIES OF COLOUR, LIGHT, AND REFLECTIONS, REAL FILM RETAINS THE NEGATIVE, THE SPACES BETWEEN, A TRUE ART WHOSE AUTHENTICITY IS  PROVABLE ON FILM....THE ART OF PICKING YOUR SUBJECT, I LIKE CANDID PHOTO'S THE BEST, THEY CAPTURE MORE THAN THEIR 'SUBJECTS', THEY REVEAL MOTION, EMOTION AND THE 'FEEL' OF A SCENE, I'VE NEVER MASTERED THE ART OF PHOTOGRAPHY, AND HAVE ALWAYS APPRECIATED THE SKILL AND THE RARE 'GENIUS' OF THE PHOTOGRAPHER
