During a little down-time between sight seeing, hanging out with my friends, and trying to feature sushi in as many meals as possible while I'm still in Seattle, I decided to peek through some of the nearly 9,000 photos I've shot (not including those with my iPhone) during the past 5 weeks. (With two big trips scheduled for this week, I'm expecting to reach my goal, hand's down.) Usually, things have been moving so fast out here that my top priority is just to download the day's finds, put that group of shots into the most effectively-labeled folder possible, maybe rotate the portrait ones IF I'm lucky, and charge my camera battery. Lots of times I've dropped the ball on the battery charging and lived to regret it. I'm getting better at remembering.
Having completed my now-mandatory routine a while ago, I decided to peek through a folder from more than a week ago. Camping in Champoeg State Park was fun. And I've seen so many things since then, the images are sure to be a treat. Let's see what's in that group!
Aah, yes. Spider webs. We found several enormous spider webs the first morning we woke there. (Second morning camping, first morning at Champoeg.) And while those shots were a bit challenging to capture, and not necessarily that bad, the lighting and coloring left a little to be desired. Never fear, Photoshop Filters are here!
I talk a lot about the ways patterns thrill me, and this most organic of patterns is no exception. Thank you little spider! For giving me something to take home with me, AND for not sticking around to freak out my friends and me in our tents. Yes. You're a good spider, indeed!
