*Friday, July 13
This storm poured down around 3 inches of rain in under a half hour; it was crazy.
2/28 – We got a little bit of an ice storm last night, and our power went out as soon as I walked in the door after getting home from work. It ended up being extremely nice having a night off from my computer and electronics in general. If it wasn’t for my 365 I would probably try to make it a regular thing.
I had other plans for my picture today, but then I saw these storm clouds rolling in and I couldn’t resist. Unfortunately it moved a bit too fast and was too close for me to get a good shot of the entire thing like I wanted. A wider lens would have helped out as well, but I still am happy with it.

I have had this shot in mind for quite a few weeks, and finally got around to it this weekend. It isn’t quite as relevant as it was when I thought of it, but still is packed with meaning for me.
This may have been the longest it has ever taken to set up one of my pictures too. I had scoped out the location a couple of weeks ago, so I didn’t waste time trying to find one. But, once we got on location, I had to find the right angle for the camera, and then the right angle for me to lay down. Once I figured that out, I laid down amidst countless spiders and other creepy crawlies, and my friend attached red yarn to me and the trees around me. It was weird for me to not be the one physically setting up the shot, and I just had to lay there and direct him since I was attached to branches all around. It rained fairly hard twice while I was laying there, and I flicked off quite a few spiders throughout the process.
Overall it was quite the shoot. I wish that the yarn was more visible and obvious, and pulled tighter to prevent the slack, but it is just yet another lesson learned.
