True Companion

Taken near Bardowick, Germany.
October 2010.
Long exposure.

Sometimes I'm an angel
And sometimes I'm cruel
And when it comes to love
I'm just another fool
Yes, I'll climb a mountain
I'm gonna swim the sea
There ain't no act of god girl
Could keep you safe from me
My arms are reaching out
Out across this canyon
I'm asking you to be my true companion

When the years have done irreparable harm
I can see us walking slowly arm in arm
Just like that couple on the corner do
'cause girl I will always be in love with you
And when I look in your eyes
I'll still see that spark
Until the shadows fall
Until the room grows dark
Then when I leave this earth
I'll be with the angels standin'
I'll be out there waiting for my true companion

(Marc Cohn - True Companion)

I might have met that girl last year... Her name is Sophie... She's beautiful, she's got a good sense of humour, she's smart. However, during the period of three months in which we dated, she was too busy studying law and writing articles for the local newspaper. Too busy as far as I was concerned. Maybe I should have been more patient. Maybe it is true that only unfulfilled love can be romantic...

I love the sense of movement in the reflections.

I think true love is romantic because it stops you caring about the unfulfilled loves ! :D

Like this - you're making me contemplate long exposures for myself!

Thanks! You should try long exposures, they're a lot of fun.
