an ode to light

i miss photography.

so much
for the creativity of it
the want and need for it
the joy brought out in others
the passion then generated in me.


it’s an art these days
that seems so understandable,
but it’s something much
than that.

it is not a filter swiped onto a self portrait made in our every day lives
it is a story of a
who took the time to open
and let me extract their light.

when i look into eyes of a portrait
i see
the sheer vulnerability yet striking confidence
i’ve helped them muster up for even if a fraction of a second.

when i look into the smile, the white teeth
i see
a pure
big belly laugh
that i
you have to be funny. you have to be personable. you have to let down your guard, so they can let down theirs.

when i look into
the flick of a strand of hair
falling so gracefully in the frame of the photo
i see
the poise and
i have for their
at this
very moment.

when i look into the garment
so elegantly
draped on the body of this person
i see
beauty and true neutrality in the way
things find their home
it is not forced or known,
it becomes what it has been
all along.

xo, Hallie
