lluvia de mayo

posted on: 6.04.2012





A couple of days ago, I spent a few hours with this lady. The sun was bright and she was perfect, but out of the blue, rain came down. We both debated in what we should do: either to keep shooting or leave. We both took the latter choice. I gave her my umbrella and I stayed in the rain, holding my camera still and letting the light drizzle refresh me. It is often the unplanned that inspires me (talking about God in between shots also helps).
Have you ever missed someone? I have. In French, there is no such thing as the phrase "I miss you". They say "Tu me manques" which basically means "you are missing from me". That is actually very close to how it feels. Someone becomes so close to you that the person becomes a part of you...
Tu me manques beaucoup


What inspires you these days? Any summer plans?

  1. That's so wonderful! I love that phrase :)
    And your pictures are lovely.
    Anyway, God's been inspiring me lately. And a book I just bought by Oswald Chambers called My Upmost for His Highest. OH MY WOW.
