Heart Rocks


Heart Rocks, Long Island Sound, Long Island, New York, North Fork"

When I started exploring the shoreline of the North Fork of Long Island, I noticed that there where a lot of rocks shaped like hearts. I collected them and one day put them back in the water and photographed this scene.

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in

my heart) i am never without it (anywhere

i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done

by only me is your doing, my darling)

i fear

no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want

no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)

and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant

and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows

(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud

and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which


higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)

and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

 i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

e.e. cummings
