You Capture - Black & White



In My Arms
by Plumb


Your baby blues, so full of wonder


Your curly cues, your contagious smile
And as I watch you start to grow up
All I can do is hold you tight.

Story books full of fairy tales
Of kings and queens


And the bluest skies

My heart is torn just in knowing
You'll someday see the truth from lies

Knowing clouds will rage

And storms will race in
But you will be safe in my arms.


Rains will pour down

Waves will crash around


But you will be safe in my arms.

Castles, they might crumble


Dreams may not come true
But you are never all alone
Because I will always
Always love you.

Note: The ocean shot was pulled from the archives because, well...there aren't too many beaches in these parts.

These shots are stunning - love the chess set and the mummy hug one :D What do you shoot on? Your shots are so sharp and clear - even the inside ones which is where I struggle.
