This is one of my favorite poems but then again I have many favorite poems. Every-time I get to the end of the sidewalk and start on the crosswalk I think of this poem. No clue why but it is what it is.
I do not have a sidewalk within a 1/4 mile of my house and this spot is another 3/4 mile past that so you could say I followed the Dr.s Orders and walked. I do have one more sidewalk photo but it needs developed and I hope it turns out. This is the first spot (Charleston area) that I have seen this type man hole cover . It is both cool and sad at the same time but that is a rant for another day. When I grabbed a shot with the K1000 (film camera) a young kid said look mom that man is crazy he is taking a picture of the sidewalk. I just looked up and smiled giving him a thumbs up that is when he realized the window was down and turned redder than the stop light his moms car was at. I have 6 more frames and a few clamps to purchase then I will develop the roll (for better or worse).
We got really lucky with the storms yesterday. There was a tornado/waterspout (went over Lake Moultrie) about 10 miles from the house to the east and a separate one 10 miles to the west of us. The winds before the storm line got here were a bit off the chain and when the storm arrived it went still for about 2 min. Talk about an eerie feeling .
I sat outside watching the clouds for an hour or so before the line got here . The textures and shades of grey were mesmerizing to me but I love watching storms and clouds even though they probably should scare me due to my experiences with lightening when I was 11 or 12 .
