walking down a spiral staircase

this is all I have for today…think of it as a sneak peek for the posts to come next week! I took this shot this morning (before spilling coffee all over my back seat and shattering my cell phone!) during a photo shoot of an AMAZING Sullivans Island property … be on the lookout for a few posts about this home … I was able to shoot some amazing porches AND some amazing puppies this morning 🙂 HAPPY FRIDAY TO ALL!!!

Today marks the end of the first month of sky photos! Here is what 31 days of sky looks like… I think I am going to create another tab at the top of my blog to organize, sort and reflect on my 365 Sky project by the month. My current tab has daily rambles of what is happening (or not happening) during each photo. I think this 2nd tab I create will be less like a journal entry, and more like a true reflective piece, to gauge what I have learned about my environment, my camera, and myself.  Stay tuned.

I am beginning to see patterns in the sky from one day to another. This week the sky seemed to slowly transition into the next day’s landscape. Can you see? Check out all my progress here.

Face your fear of spiders and scroll…

…you may surprise yourself and decide they are beautiful!

Banana Spider is ready for lunchCommon spider in the LowcountryEven spiders can be prettyJust a spider hanging out

Here are 2 cool facts I learned about banana spiders (I would have given 3 facts, but I doubt anyone is reading this, and you certainly won’t get past 2 if you haven’t already clicked out of my blog):

  1. They were formally known as Golden Silk Orb Weavers. Prince ain’t got nothin’ on that formally known as name! I wish I was formally known as an orb weaver of golden silk.
  2. Every banana spider we see is a female. Male banana spiders are tiny, brown, free-loaders. Literally, they live on the female-made golden orb, providing nothing, eating whatever they want, sleeping whenever they want, and…doing…it…whenever they want. Ladies, learn from these 8-legged females. Don’t weave yourself into a banana spider relationship.

Stay at Park House Bed and Breakfast. Private, quiet, luxury rooms. Delicious, gourmet breakfast. Afternoon wine and cheese on the front porch.

Eat brunch, lunch or dinner at The Green Room. The eggs benedict and home fries are delightful.

Sip some coffee at Coffee Underground. It really is underground. And have them spike your drink with something fancy.

Spend at least an hour at the Mast General Store on Main Street.

Stroll Falls Park on South Main Street. Walk the suspension bridge…it shakes a little bit. Invigorating. Face your fears.

Indulge in tapas at  The Art Bar on Main. Peruse local art in a casual, laid back setting. And if you are feeling saucy, buy something!

Last but not least, do everything on foot. Greenville has so much to offer their pedestrians. Even in the rain 🙂

4 of my 7 daily sky photos this past week were taken from Brittlebank Park, a green space in downtown Charleston that overlooks the Ashley River. Check out the photos…maybe I should tweak the rules, again, and shoot solely at Brittlebank! The sky was mesmerizing.
