Inscribed Verso: To Carol (the photographer’s wife),
It was after the sun went down,
Something in the distance caught her attention.
Emily turned, listened, and was lost in thought.
Her head in perfect profile,
It was only the sound of the shutter that broke the silence.
I knew that this was the moment I had waited for.
Love from Greg, 2004
