…well, at least a walk down the drive.
The walk down the drive with my grandkids is only 200 yards long. The school bus arrives just before sunrise this time of year for the ride to their North Georgia middle school. Most times I carry my camera when I visit. Doing so this morning did not let me down. The terraced hill above the house is shrouded in a low thin mist that divides the embankment from the forest that grows tall and dense past the farmland along the ridge. But, this morning’s view contains a bonus. Hundreds of small one-half inch spiders had dotted the landscape with their delicate and beautiful nets. Covered in dew, they stand their silent vigil, patiently awaiting their morning meals… that and for the offhand chance that I might grab their portrait on the dawning light. I comply. Here are the results. A good way to remember September 11. A good way.
