The scent of spent matches and recently snuffed candles hang heavy in the deserted basement. He can’t be gone long. The naive mistakes of a young runaway, leading us to him like a child playing hide and seek, waiting to be found. Look, over there! Come on, let’s get you home.

** Photograph by Ian Hayhurst. Thanks for the inspiration!

      Phew! Good to have the photographer’s approval. Feel free to reply to this with a link to your pics, so people can see more if they want.

  2. That’s very good of you… here is the match larger
    I’m sure anyone interested could find their way around from there, should inspiration strike they are almost all licensed as creative commons and can be used with attribution 😉
