Stories from the Snap Shack Issue #1

"A spider lives inside my head, who weaves a strange and wondrous web, of silken threads and silver strings, to catch all sorts of flying things, like crumbs of thoughts and bits of smiles, and specks of dried-up tears, and dust of dreams that catch and cling, for years and years and years..."          S. Silverstein

I went out to shoot the fog this morning and instead found myself caught up in this web. Pun intended! Photography has taught me to be more open to serendipity, to let go of THE PLAN. But above all else it has taught me to lean into my vulnerability. For to be an artist is to open your heart, to find the strength and resilience in what seems like fragility. Like the silk of the web and the spider's daily rebuilding of it. So I suppose in the end I went to take a picture of fog and captured a metaphor:)

Beautiful photos! The metaphor is not lost on me. It makes me wonder about the web I create in my head that keeps me from the beauty on the other side. The web protects me but also holds me back. Thank you for sharing! 💜
