image of a woman with her face towards the camera and the sun behind her back, illuminating a large tree. she is in shadows, the hint of light on the side of her face from the light of the sun. in front of her flies grass, swirling around her in the air.

The Bar Mitzvah


|
it is dusk: we see water, deep maroon with black shadows crested on the underside of shelled waves,. a boat lit up with gold lights and steaming smoke into the mauve-dusky sky casts bands of gold and glittering lights on the path of the water, leaves a dark shadow behind it. the shore is a black band of shadows.
