All Seeing, I

A camera tells
much about people who fall
under the gaze of its eye,
but he who clicks the shutter
offers his dreams to the world.

Written for The Mag, where Tess gave us a self portrait of Francis Bacon to play with. I chose to zoom in for this close up...

    1. Your in/out focus complete with shutter's click, is intriguing- but I can't leave comments on your blog...Hope you get to read this instead.

    1. I think my only plan is to follow my nose. LOL And that I do in fits and starts, as the mood takes me, dividing myself between all things creative. Recently I've been on a crochet kick - latest madness? Crocheted fairy cakes!
