It’s that time of the week again, and I’m going to take you back to a warm afternoon in November 1984 in Fort Worth, Texas. I was attending a most un-memorable training session on a topic which I remember very well, but with which I will not burden you. In fact, it was so boring a series of lectures that, during the brief breaks, I would go outside and lie in the grass to see what I could see to take my mind in a more pleasant direction. And sure enough, I was invited to share some time with a tiny crab spider that was waiting patiently for someone to visit the center of the flower where it had taken up a hopeful position. I wish I could identify the flower, but its name escapes me. Can anyone help?
My camera was a Nikon Coolpix 4500, and I shot this, hand-held, at 1/590 second and f/7.5 at 400 ISO. It’s one of my best memories of Texas—except that I went to an unbelievably-huge bar complex called Billy-Bob’s, and I saw Eddie Rabbit in a wonderful live performance, shortly before his untimely death. I’m not normally a fan of “country” music, but I still love to listen to his stuff, most especially I Love a Rainy Night. Yee-Haw!
