The Photographer

He studied me closely
with keen attention to detail
looking out for every shade, line and contour
until he captured the perfect intimate moment
soon to be recorded in history.
I could feel him watching me -
his seducing lenses penetrating my skin
as I anticipated the heat of that blinding flash,
and the split second when I would close my eyes
blush, laugh, fidget all in a single snapshot
as he undressed my whole being, my soul.
Then finally, imprisoned by his eyes
I would be totally his.
First his subject. Then his art.

There is something vaguely 'whorish' about posing for a pic, and also something narcisstic in wanting to be preserved for posterity. I guess that's why people get 'camera-shy'. Interesting piece, enjoyed reading it and thinking about your take.

I like it - and I think I must have a dirty mind too!

It really is good, uncomfortable almost. You get the idea of seeing the darkly hidden essence!

libera, very sensuous. I enjoyed it! The last line is interesting; it made me ponder.
