Walking on my treadmill this morning, I looked out and saw another gorgeous day dawning in Fallbrook:
I'm not a very good photographer. Fiddling with the focus, I got my usual results - never once have I successfully captured the beauty of the patches of fog tucked here and there in the hills.
Still looking at the big picture I almost missed what was right under my nose.
So I got closer...
And when I moved my camera to the right a little, I saw this.
The spider web was glistening and beautiful like a wedding veil draped over the jasmine. A good photographer could have done something with this subject.
For me, the camera served to draw my attention to something lovely I would have missed. I stood outside and admired the web until the angle of the light changed and the whole construction seemed to vanish from view.
