  •    Chilly.    Damp.    Pre-coffee.

       A lady's evening footwear, orphaned.
       Unexpected during my early morning routine.

    All in a single image.  All bundled together:  Cinderella and her prince. Tristan and Isolde. Romeo and Juliet ... You and me.

    crouch. point. click.  A feeling frozen in time.
