Spiders and the Approach of Autumn

Late September is when the leaves turn; they start to crisp, to brown, and to curl. It’s still a time for deep lush greenery but fringed by auburn, rust and gold.

When I got all my equipment replaced, I went into the woods to search for signs of autumn and to look at the spot where my bag fell in. It was weird being back there again with a camera, as although I replaced everything it was a traumatic experience seeing a bag filled with my camera, lenses, laptop and accessories roll into the river. It had taken me years to build up my fairly modest but treasured range of kit and some of it was still being paid off. Facing the spot where I had stripped to the waist and waded cartier replica in to retrieve the bag as it floated towards the deepest part of the pool was eerie. Like the leaves, I had felt my drive cartier love necklace to continue on this project start to rust.

But, now that I’ve picked up a camera again and got back into a rhythm, I’m running to the finish line. This project took a dip but it’s ending on a high. This was the start of getting my mojo back and rediscovering why I was doing the project. It wasn’t just about the woods, it was also for me.

Incidentally, I used to be really cartier love bracelet sizing
scared of spiders then I started taking close-up photos of them. Now I think they’re ace (but I still don’t want them crawling on me).
