travel thursday: the sienna window

the sienna window
a decisive moment occurs between the camera and her master.
peering through the view-finder, a decision must be made:
to push the button or to wait.
one frame left, toy camera in hand.
seeing, observing, waiting.
connecting white on white.
waiting for them to align.
the moment presents itself before my eyes.
am i ready?
my finger presses down on the plastic trigger.
and then the moment is past.
deep inside i know.
and the memory of knowing fills me with euphoria.

sienna, italy 2004, "love, holga"
