Of Impassioned Vision

Strike a pose - behold, an alluring image!
Tripping the shutter, a moment is captured
Each frame becomes registered as a lasting memory.
Photographs, though worth many words, fail to yield the full story.

Hidden beneath the emulsion is the passion of an inspired vision.
Attempts to reveal the total picture remain undeveloped.
No, inspirations can never be fixed in grains of silver.
In the eye, the mind, a photograph is conceived.
Exposed, only from the heart, are the emotions that give completion.

AMBRESS, Sept. 1993
