soft striations

imagine

on a warm summer's day
running your hands
over rock surfaces
such as these


feel the cool
hardness
of the shadowy
striations


the splash
of waves
spraying
small cold
exclamation marks of themselves
against your own
warm skin

Oh YES! LOVE lying on warm stones. Have you ever had a warm stone massage? HEAVENLY. Your photos are curious, very liquid.
"Corpse" game- I did not know what the game was called but we played both versions ever since I can remember. Thanks for giving it a name...

The last photo looks so inviting for bare toes to traipse through.

It's funny but I swear the 2nd shot looks as if it's trying to spell out a word in some long, lost language.

I'll interpret it to mean, "Sit and stay a while." :)

i love this - both - words and pictures - it's just a perfect fit
my fav lines are
"spraying
small cold
exclamation marks of themselves
against your own
warm skin"

this sounds like heaven!

hi claudia - when i took these photographs it was a beautiful warm day and as i crouched over the striations in the rocks i was getting sprayed every so often by little dots of cold water. it actually made me laugh out loud because in its own subtle way it was like the classic summer prank you play on someone who is exposed in the sun. i wasn't sure who or what was playing the prank! steven
