D.K.'s story

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

D.K. views the world from 36”. Each broken branch, a swashbuckler’s cutlass; every dandelion seed, an astronaut floating to earth. The unlimited imagination of a child.

Dad pulls a dusty box from the closet. A small, aluminum brick resting in a leather case. Wide eyes, curious hands.

What’s this? Click. The flash bursts. Again. And again. The batteries drain. Time to recharge.

Next day, the light is green. There are many questions to answer. How many whiskers on Ziggy The Cat? What shade of red is this carpet? What does my sister look like upside-down?

Can he take it outside?

Tools of the trade

Hand-me-down Lumix from dad.

It is early and the sun shines. Dewy grass sticks to his feet. Morning, birds. Morning, sky. Hairline cracks in the pavement. A sleepy spider. 

Can we go farther? 

This is the train. This is the town. This is the beach. This is his family. This is his life. 

Colors blend. Light dazzles. Shapes buzz. 

What do these photos mean? They don’t mean anything, Dad. They just are.
