She and Her Subject

“A picture is a secret about a secret, the more it tells you the less you know.” ― Diane Arbus

She looks through the viewfinder at her subject.

What’s in her mind we’ll never know.

She sees beauty where we see monstrosity.

She sees happiness where we see torment.

She looks through her viewfinder at her subject.

What’s in her heart we’ll never know.

She sees life where we see mortality.

She sees freedom where we see shackles.

She looks through the viewfinder at her subject.

What’s in her soul we will never know.

This is her art.

Her passion.

Her life.

With a press of a button.

And click of a shutter.

The secret is captured.

The photograph is a sight to behold.

For when we gaze upon it, she has made sure that we are transformed.

Forever.

Super Sweet Blogging Award

Yesterday, I received a nomination for a Super Sweet Blogging Award by Patricia Awapara, a very creative blogger. She’s an artist and a writer. She has published short stories and a book too. Check out her page. Oh and she’s quite the beauty too. 😉

I am honored to receive the award! Actually I’m freaked out and overwhelmed, but I’m happy.

1. Thank the super sweet blogger that nominated them. Thank you Patricia Awapara!!!

2. Nominate a baker’s dozen of other bloggers. 13 to be exact. 😉

3. Answer 5 super sweet questions.

4. Add the Super Sweet Blogging Award image to your blog post.

5. Notify your nominees at their blogs (I super suck at this, sorry!)

Questions

1.Cookies or Cake? Neither. I’m actually a huge sucker fan. Sweet and Sour Charms Pops are my favorite. Blue Raspberry flavor because they turn my tongue blue. Giggle.

2. Chocolate or Vanilla? Neither. I’d rather Sweet Tarts or Sour Patch Kids. Ooohhh or neon gummie worms. YUM!

3. What is your fave sweet treat? Creme Brulee. I’d rub it all over my boobs if I could. Gah, I love it!!

4. When do you crave sweet things the most? It’s not a specific time really. It’s more about the quality of the sweet. If I knew of a place that served Creme Brulee that would give me an orgasm, then I’d walk there if I had to. Har!

5. If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be? Oh that’s easy. It’d be Sweetness.

Now, let’s open the envelope to read the new nominees! tatatan! It was a hard choice. (I love these blog awards, they are a great way to promote each other.)
