Misty Morning Spiderwebs

There was a dense fog advisory this morning, which meant it was pretty misty and foggy outside. I didn't think much about it and went about my morning routine.

And then I walked out my front door and noticed the shrubs. They were covered in spider webs, which I had never noticed, but the mist from the dense fog had settled on them and now there were all these white gauzy spider web pockets. I had never seen anything like it, especially right outside my front door.

That's when "the voice" spoke up. You know the one...

"You don't have time to take photos of this."
"If the neighbors see you, they'll think you're weird."
"You'll be late for work!"

I found the whole situation a little funny, because just last week one of my flickr contacts had posted a reminder about ignoring that voice. And here I was with a photo opportunity and a little voice to contend with.

I stood there, looking at those spider webs and my brain, which sometimes manages to be louder than the voice, took over. It reminded me that my camera was right there in my bag and it would only take a minute, so just take a photo already!

And while this may not be the best photo ever, it's proof that I ignored the voice.

I need to do that more often.
