Flights of fancy

And leaps of imagination. These are some of my favorite images from the shoot last week with my friend Sadie Dayton. Our day began early; we were on the┬ábeach at sunrise. Sporting at various times a bird mask, vintage silk lingerie, satin slippers, fishnet stockings, and Peter’s great grandfather’s dress tails, I frolicked in the early morning light as Sadie shot frame after frame.

We, Sadie and I, have always seen the best in each other. In some ways, she is like the twin I longed for as a child (oh–the trouble we could have gotten into!). Our mutual understanding and trust runs deep: in her presence, I am completely comfortable and free from inhibition.

When asked to take these pictures, Sadie said yes without hesitation. She understood the sense of urgency; my need to see just exactly where I am, right now.

Standing on terra firma, with spirit intact.
