The Belly

This is one of those pictures that I wished I got a little closer, down to the ground.   Closer to eye level. The little toe-head the lion seems to be staring at?  That is my daughter.  And my reaction to this picture was a sort of nonchalant-ness.  Not because there is protective glass barrier,because of course that is comforting.  No, it's because I know my little girl can stare into the belly of a beast and live to tell the tale.  Artemis of modern times.  Her fierceness surrounds her like a suit of armor.
And as much as I hate the thought that one day she will leave me, which she assures me will NEVER happen, I know she will be okay.  It is a small comfort.

Dancer. Artist.  Lion Tamer.  Muse.

  1. Awesome shot there... regardless of the angle it is still most impressive that your little lamb was able to look him in the eye!


Thanks for your comments- they are like pennies from heaven.


Life doesn't seem fair  and I am a witness. "I don't believe in God" she says And I have nothing to refute it. I see...
