面纱(The Veil)


炎热的午后,她轻轻地来到院子里,显得异常孤单。
我正玩着相机,随即被这不请自来的访客吸引,其披在身上的纱布,更是精致至极,不像出自人间工匠之手。

我开始摄影,她也不甚避忌,只稍微含羞以纱布半遮俏脸,任我为所欲拍。
拍毕,她挥挥衣袖离去,不留半点曾经到来的痕迹。

留下的,唯独这张“面纱”。。。。
On this hot afternoon, I was running out of subject to shoot.

Out of a sudden, a dragonfly landed on a plant in my little garden. I was attracted by its translucent wings and the interesting patterns on the wings. I tried out a few shots to make the wings the main subject but failed to capture them satisfactorily.
Instead, this shot of the translucent wing half covering the face of the dragonfly like a veil of a woman became my shot of the day.

Luck sometimes does play a role in getting a good shot.
I shall try again on a close-up shot of the translucent wing the next time I come across the dragonfly…
