28 December: Fleeting

Date #28Too sad on this day, my birthday, is the discovery that she is gone.

What she leaves, however, being a photographer of life, are her lively pictures of a perpetual present, into which she invites us as her twinkling eye snatches a moment of human flight and levity.

“What I like is to make an instant picture.”

Her shutter closes. I put down my pen. I leave you with thoughts, from 5 years ago, on a photographer who should be much better known, and now surely will, after her death today;
