October Swing by KatMPhotography October Swing by KatMPhotography
I wait all year for October - anticipating the chill of her long bony fingers, and cold stare... anticipating her grapling my limbs... my feet, bare, as I walk through the fallen leaves in the park. I watch as my breath floats like fragments of cloud rising to join the others...

I wait for you. Barefoot on a childs abandoned swing... in a forgotten area of town. Swinging high - to the sky - trying to catch my breath... but you keep snatching it from me. I feel the her cold embrace and hear her music whistle past my ears, my hands red, cold clutching the chains as I swing higher and higher - wishing I could let go.

But I can\'t.

I don\'t want to.

I love being held in her cold embrace, and that giddy feeling in my stomach...

That\'s love that is.

Strangely.

I like the cool emotional detachment - a bit like October - If you could personify 'October'... my favourite time of the year!!!

That's only my opinion, but I guess you should stick to Canon or Nikon, then think about how much money can you spend and pick the model and something better then the kit lens :) I'm also saving for a better DSLR now :)
