The Space Between

They looked picture perfect. Two beautiful people framed between two pillars of the cathedral of Santa Maria Dell’ Assunta in Torcello. I considered showing them these photos. But I held back, reluctant to intrude into that beautiful space between them, that radiated a delightful sense of ease. And togetherness.

  1. I stumbled on your blog after “wandering” through many others and I must say, I’m in love with the way you tell stories! This post about the space between was absolutely perfect.

  2. Perfection … to look at them tells a story. I wonder what their conversation was about.
    Regardless, they seemed to have been waiting for you to capture them. ~~~~ : – )

    1. I sensed more of an effortless connection Meredith. A kind of ‘comfort chemistry’ 🙂

  3. the picture apwaks volumes. generally a picture shows only. great moment captured. relaxed, with the knowledge of togetherness.

    1. I am happy the emotions came across much as i perceived them! Thanks Rondita. Happy to meet you 🙂

  4. 2 thumbs up Madhu – oh wow – and the space of the white sky just allows us to feel the couple and the architecture more – and there shadows add to the friendship feel – and also really love the two different shots – it added more.

    1. Thank you for the lovely compliment Dallas! I really would have loved to know theirs 🙂

  5. Beautifully framed. I may be looking too much into how their shadows are joined together, as are the pillars.

    1. You are so right Claudine. And it is the light in this image that makes the difference. Thank you 🙂

  6. Beautiful beyond words. This could be anywhere in the world. Many thanks Madhu. and regards!

  7. Togetherness at it’s best. Apart but together. Characterized by the timeless pillars as if passing the same message to the young couple. Amazing pic it looks to be communicating the story on it’s own.

    1. I thought that too, would have loved to know more about their story 🙂 Thank you for stopping by.

    1. Thanks Patti. I half expected to end up with a dark silhouette, but the sun was at just the right spot.

  8. Beautiful Madhu…I wondered what you would come up with and it is perfect. I think you were right not to come between them and their moment together

  9. Ahh the second is especially lovely, I’m sure they would love them but I understand why you didn’t show them. I often wonder about people in my photos that I don’t know.

    1. They were perfectly positioned for the shot Sue! Didn’t have to do much more than aim and shoot! 🙂
