a Photographic Journey by Meryl


don’t despair

slip through
rubber limbs
inflated wings

 float offshore
turn evergreen
lucky charm

  5. The longing and dreams of a lifesaver! Well seen, well read, well captured and well written. I guess we all have our dreams. That green colour really screams to be noticed. It’s great how you put it in context with the environment and the people in the background. The low point of view and the wide angel really makes for an interesting picture. Great work.
