Stretching one hand in front while the other has to hold the camera and push the shutter and I have to use the viewfinder to see/compose the shot. I am thinking I need to be less Lazy and use ...

bird in hand series

through the cracks in time,
we dream of tomorrow,
and yesterday fades away,
Now is calling.

we are strong, we are fragile,
we live, we fly.
And one day...

but until that day,
I love my friends,
and my furry walking companion,

I am Now
