This photo, of all the photos that I have taken this past month, touched me the most.
As I walk the city, I notice and photograph so many things that speak to me and/or make me think of things that are going on within my heart and head at any given time. I notice letters where letters do not exist, messages from the universe within advertising and signage, shapes, colors and patterns. It really is how I see the world.
This photo, however, was taken while on a walk after a lovely lunch with my BF. He is always so patient with my fascination with whatever it is that has tickled me that day. He knows that if and when I reach into my purse It is for my camera and he will walk slower or watch me as I focus and shoot my subject of the moment. I was obsessed with shadows on this walk back home through the park. I was distracted by their length, their shape, and how the sun and clouds changed the intensity of the shadow.
This photo makes me smile deep within myself, you know, the kind of smile that makes your heart grin.
See, I met my Superman 25 years ago, and I have known that he was/is the love of my life. We dated back when I was in college but it took us many years and separate lives filled with lessons to reconnect. Now, we spend our lives together through the good and the bad, the joyous and the difficult.
In this photo, I love the length of the light post due to the position of the sun - how straight it is. And, especially, I love the way that our bodies lean into one another and touch in the shadow. I am smiling as I type this because it just brings such deep comfort and happiness. This is the message for me - a sense of home.
