A picture's secrets
I take a deep breath, trying to capture the atmosphere and frame the picture in my mind. The river boat comes around and I wave at the people on it for the last time. Their smiles echo mine as the ship docks and one little girl drops a curtsy and does her best princess wave. More people board the boat, and one last passenger rushes to the gate. The band stops, and the breeze sends a piece of paper fluttering in front of them.
A cloud covers the sun as I turn to go.
