She Doesn't Need Wings To Fly by BenHeine She Doesn't Need Wings To Fly by BenHeine

Model: Majka Malíková.

I met Maja almost by coincidence at the beginning of my trip
in Spain, just before heading to Santiago de Compostela.

She used to be a gymnast... There is no trick.
She really jumped that high... I was really impressed.

If you wish, you can view 2 details here: [link]

I'll post more photos soon. Thanks for watching.

Like A Bird on A Wing

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Like a bird on a wing
... In a motions and swing
She is going here by
In an airborne to the sky

Hours in yesterday´s blue
Like waves of the sea
Round and round going thru
On to mist of eternity
Times of deep in a trip
Jumping high and slow
As each coincidence slip
Through the air on its go

Like a bird on a wing
In a motions and swing
She is going here by
In an airborne to the sky

She is always trying
To go to the deep of blue
The sky and ocean tying
For each day to renew
Moments gone - coming still
Thru a thought in a mind
Aspirations to fulfill
Those once left behind

Like a bird on a wing
Open billows accompanying
She is Goddess of the deep
For a photograph to keep

It's a beautiful double stag. I'm a competitive gymnast... and believe me, it's hard to throw your head back and get your arms in the right spot. As soon as you throw your head back, you loose a lot of your sense of space. Just throwing your head back you sometimes get a little wonky. Imagine that times ten and your 5 feet high in the air. :D

She looks so subtle and fragile, and at the same time strong and invincible.
