the blind date

Sometimes I like to experiment with objects in a still life setting where I can learn to better control the lighting behind a scene. It's especially fun to do while trying to also create a story with the objects being photographed. This is one of my studies.

The blind date

have you
ever been
on a blind date

just what it is
you have in common

feeling tentative
like you both
might be made
of glass

and your just not clicking...

hmmm -
maybe it's because
you can see right through him

  1. I hadn't been on a blind date until I read you poem. :-)

  2. I haven't been on a blind date, but it would be bad if I can see through him ~ Nice picture image ~

  3. excellent twist ending - sweet imagery indeed

  4. Why am I thinking glasshouses and stones?

  5. A whimsical image and companion poem. It made me smile.

  6. Really like the image and what it suggests, which is then fulfilled in your words. Love your final line,


  7. The thin, vertical build of the verses gave a "sinking feeling" vibe. Which complemented the message, well done.

  8. yes i have been on a date like this! i'm glad i stumbled on your blog over at PU, i quite like it and find it inspiring. i love the connection to blind dates that you drew from this image. x
