Nature's Place

A Long Way to Market


A journey unto itself, getting my stuff to market. Learning about printing, the ins and outs of mounting – matting, adhesives, pressures, sizes, compositions. People. It’s a job learning to do the job properly. And maybe someone will buy something when I get there.

But on my way to market I saw this spider. An amazing creature. It was a little skittish at first but settled down after a few shots and even sat for me, it could be said.

She is a beauty. Big, young, healthy and most of all untroubled. Sitting there in the vacuity of being spider with nothing in particular to do. Being no thing, until spider has something to do, spider moves.

Being moves as spider.

    Gosh, Mark, she’s scary!! I like jumpers better. Most definitely.

    Would love to shoot some spiders too, but I think I’ve already missed the spider season here.. Everything’s just too fast – we already had a first snow and days of nasty nasty weather before it. And some dare say climate change ain’t happening..

    Good luck with the new learning job ;)
