into the chaos of his heart...
mermie & couchboy, canon digital rebel xti
"She writes a letter. Single spaced.
Breathless. No pauses. Just lets it
run together and rush like the bottom,
bottom of the waterfall.
She rides her bike to his house.
Takes the long way but pedals fast.
And then slides those liquid words
under his door. Into the chaos of his heart.
She stormed into his life and took control
of the right side of his brain."
Monique Duval, The Persistance of Yellow
I am such a swooner about romance. Mermie let me borrow this book when I went to her cottage last week. I've been devouring it. I resonate so much with how this author writes inspired by her playful imagination.
I love how she describes the anticipation and surrender of love in the quotes above.
I cannot say enough about the connection between mermie and couchboy and how it is full of acceptance and adoration. I loved photographing them and plan to do it again soon. Nothing was ever staged. It was so very organic. Just how I prefer it to be. I just told them I wanted to be in the background while they connected. So they did...and I was lucky enough to capture it.
The exchange that transpired between the three of us that day while shooting is why I am passionate about photography.
