Caught in the Act

Discards from the Hollywood dream factory,
songbirds on the lam,
defiant vaudevillians caught in the act,
their lives held together by a breeze.

    Wow! I was wondering…how much patience is needed for your kind of photography?

    That’s what she said.

    Hiding in the shadow of greatness. in awe of the ability to soar, so much higher than the others. Raw admiration reflected in those eyes, needing to be close, and wanting so much more.

    Spellbinding: the moment, the capture, the talent behind the lens.

    Wow, no bursts, that takes immaculate timing sense to be honed.
    You might miss some, yet to me it seems that you absolutely do take a lot of godlike ones too! ;
