The other day I got out the "good camera" and took a ride through the country. Didn't have any particular goal or shot in mind, but wanted to just escape from reality for a bit and look around. I am loving the weather here in Charleston, even though it's starting to get a bit on the warm (actually, hot) side. I saw these weeds as I drove towards Huger and had to pull off and take some better shots. I started by leaning across the car and aiming the camera out the window but gave that up quickly. I decided to go ahead and be the jackass who walks around in shorts and sandals in the weeds along the road. Luckily I didn't see any snakes or gators...not to say there weren't any around! haaaaaaaaaaaa I've taken to carrying bug spray and sunscreen in the car regularly, so I was ready on that front.
I think the stop was worth it. The brightness. The simplicity. The harshness of those thorns. This weed is making the most of it during the limited opportunity it has before the mowers come through or the thistlely (that's my new word of the day) fluff blows away. Damn. Not another life lesson...take advantage of every day because the mowers are out there and the breeze could take that fluff any time!
Go live it up and be beautiful today!
