In August, I climbed higher than I had dared before
and earned myself a different view,
including one or two last
(out of my reach) – whose
siblings lay in petals
scattered on the ground.
Mid-month, the wind blew strongly
enough to make the boughs sway – and me with them.
It was a distinctly
experience, and I clung on for
dear life (as did my new friends, the remaining magnolias).
I wondered what to do with the photographs I had started taking of the people who passed below. Perhaps I would put them in a gallery called ‘Human Traffic’
– but what of the dogs and occasional wildlife I snapped? Hmm.
‘Non-Leopard Sightings’, or
‘Human Traffic (and Other Beasties)’
Divided into two categories:
‘Those Who Did’ and ‘Those Who Didn’t’ (notice me, that is).
