Today was definitely an indoor kind of day. At least that's how I perceived it the minute I looked out of the window this morning. It seems like we've had grey and rainy days forever, and still I have felt the urge to get outside with my camera. Today, the urge was not there; I had my mind set on a more or less lazy, inactive day. However, I always feel the need to take pictures, and in that respect, today was no exception.
So, while looking for possible motifs, I noticed a spider's web outside one of the living room windows. Rain drops had attached themselves to the cobweb strands, and it looked like strings of glittering beads.
There was a slight wind so the web was moving, and there was rain on the window between me and the web, not to mention that the window itself was dirty, so it was hard to get focused shots. I set up my tiny tripod on the window sill, and after taking lots, and I mean lots of shots, from all kinds of acrobatic angles, a few were acceptable.
A tiny fly had got caught,
waiting to be the spider's next packed lunch.
Like the finest piece of jewelry,
displayed, but impossible to wear.
