"Lost in her World. A Fairy Story."


I crept closer, silent steps holding my breadth hoping not to be noticed. I hid behind a tree and slowly focused in.... I had one chance, for I knew once the shutter slammed shut she would be gone.
I peered through the viewfinder and was in awe of her beauty, those iridescent wings, reflective and fragile I cant believe my eyes. I want this moment to last forever. I shakily press the shutter, I hope I have the right shutter speed and aperture, to late now for she has gone. The journey home feels like an eternity, I rush up the stairs and plug my memory card into my computer. Please let her be there........... It's taking an age to load, I think to myself, "bet I blew it." Then there she is in all her glory, I do a little dance, high five myself "you genius." Then I realise I must share this vision of loveliness, but people won't believe me they will think it is a trick contrived in photoshop, but I don't care because I was there, I took the photo, she was there for me so they can and will think what they like, she was real to me and thats all that matters.

NOW IT IS YOUR TURN TO DECIDE.
