“Elegance”

Thailand
Through Harold’s Lens:

Tranquility embraced her space
Dressed in flowing green silk
Wearing a contagious smile
Delicate hands
Held each other
In tight embrace.

Tip of sable hair
Gently touched
Palettes of beauty.

Reds
Blues
Greens
Blacks
Blends.

Asian history
Thousands of years
Personal history
A lifetime.

Her dreams
Flowed
Floated.

Narrated a story
Narrated a love
Narrated a heart.

Her hand-painted fan.

  1. The thing I like most in this photo is the delicate fingers holding the fan. Not all that young any more, they have known love and loss. And yet, despite life, they hold a symbol of joy and beauty. The other fingers are adorned with rings, but slightly out of focus – which emphasises the importance of preserving the Self while belonging to the Other. A magical, beautiful picture that tells a story. The fan, itself, becomes the wings those hands need to be alive. Thank you, Harold, for making me look, and look again.
