The Come and the Go of It

Friends come and go—

but when they are “come,” you never suspect the “go.”

So . . . how many secrets, shared in trust, walk out the door with that one—that one with whom I had felt such kindred kindness.

It might make me more guarded—you would think—to shelter

closer the bleeding things that make me defenseless, to not so easily show my tender underbelly,

my transparent self,

        I have got to ask you what camera you shoot with and what macro/micro lens? I have a BFA in photography (which earned me the right to ask if you would like fries with your order), currently have a Nikon D7100 (with accessories and lenses, including a 40mm micro). Also have a Nikon F2 (with lenses), a Rollieflex and a view camera.

    With my Nikon I have the standard lens which is 18mm-55mm, a 55mm to 300mm, and the 40mm micro. Don’t know why they changed the name from macro to micro. Keep shooting.

I would love to hear from you!
