a royal flush (by Ana Luísa Pinto [Luminous Photography])
[Every week, there will be a letter, going through the order of the alphabet. Every Monday, I’ll open the Chambers Compact Dictionary and I’ll randomly pick a page of the said letter. Out of that page, I’ll randomly pick a word. And every Friday, there will be a picture based on that word.
Welcome to the Alphabet Tales. ]
trick, trik, n. Any fraud or stratagem to deceive; an illusion (e.g. a trick of the imagination); a clever contrivance to puzzle, amuse or annoy; skill, knack; a habit, mannerism; a parcel of cards falling to a winner at one turn; a turn as at the helm.
a trick of the hand. a soft sweep and she’s off to win the journey, get her money back at the table. oh, how she needs it. she has dreams. dreams of a world she’s yet to see, dreams to board a ship and go without a destination, without a need for plans. all that she needs is her companion, the other woman with the eyes made of blue and light and the hair like the sun. together, together they’re invincible.
Two weeks in a row! yay! I’m going to try to be good from now on, but I’ll warn you: my darling is coming to visit me for almost three weeks and we’ll be having an obscene amount of fun and relaxation times and artsy times and travel times and I might not come here too often. but I’ll do my best to at least take the pictures for this project.
I hope you all have a grand weekend, filled with sun and joy and lovely people!
