Light is the primary tool of the photographer even for Lily. Light for her was not only the magical tool of photo-exposure, but also the source of her internal energy. She seems to be lack of light, since it gives her life a meaning, when everything revives around her and results in a life-altering chain of events that make sense.
Lily lived in her or her parents’ shadow most of her time. All her family members were very talented and successful, while she became their bad luck. She seems to be not so lucky, however, in reality she was protected from large disasters. Her angel has a very unusual sense of humor; nevertheless, he did his job very well. And being a witness of the passionate kiss between Eros and Rose brought her back to the shadow.
She was caught in panic. Shadow embraced her and left her in total darkness of the night. It seemed like the air was getting darker as she walk passed multiple trees. Lily did not see anything, it was pitch dark. Why she felt like that – this question tormented her day and night. At the same time she was afraid she was jealous. The light was actually coming from this couple. This light helped Lily to go through the darkness of her thoughts and look at this-supposed-to-be-happy world. A kiss is the connection of two souls that is usually accompanied with unbelievable divine light similar to a rainbow. Rose and Eros seemed to light Lily’s world. She found her light road.
With these thoughts in her head Lily was slowly walking along her light road. She wanted to find her perfect spotlight and was fully immersed in it that did not recognize a silhouette approaching her. Only through her camera lenses a familiar shape started to come into sight. It was a great surprise to her, Lily made two steps back and awkwardly felt not on her soft body part.
It was quite painful!
“Ouch”, she hardly uttered a word and started to feel how pain spread through her legs. She did not pay attention to that known silhouette who was already by her side .
“Miss Lily, what are you doing here?” seriously asked he looking directly into her eyes. Suddenly Lily fixed her eyes on him. This clumsy girl gasped for air. Lily Crown was staring at Eros in the most inappropriate way. “Men should not have such beautiful eyes, it is not fair” was buzzing in her little head.
“Halloo, are you all right? Say something…” worriedly Eros continued asking her. At that instant Lily realized that she has to answer. She wanted to say a joke or something clever, but…
“Interesting, you usually ask people questions as soon as you meet them, why not just say “hello””, Lily was curious. She tried to get up, but sharp pain paralyzed her moves.
” A well-timed remark considering that you currently suffer from pain since your landing was not so lucky”, smiled he and filled her soul with magnificent light. Her life was a shadow yet, however, inside she felt intoxicating light that was creeping deeper.
Today Lily wanted to play with light and make her perfect pictures. In reality she received something else.
Lily was in physical pain from falling directly on coccyx, while her state of mind was filled with fabulous blue-eyes-light.
Similar analogy can be found in life. Sometimes there is a harmony between our body and soul. The other time, one of them is out of happy circle. Then light is in a conflict with shadow.
It can be pretty good if light can always win over shadow. Just imagine! Well, it may be hard to accept and to take in, but everything is in our hands and depends on us.
Lily was in Eros’ hands now. She could not walk, she desperately tried to avoid his help, she failed. He lifted her up like she was a feather. What a strong man!
However, they did not go home at once. Lily insisted on stopping every time when she saw her perfect light.
They made a quite funny picture. A tall and strong man was bringing a lady with photocamera in her hands. Every five minutes she asked him to stop to make a picture. What could he do? He was not able to find any argument against it.
She was too decisive to capture that special moment when light penetrates through darkness, shadows vanish, and beauty sparkles with sun light. Lily’s ideal light moment…
Wish you more light in your life!
