Peeping the Land: A Survey
August 25, 2014

I was taking pictures of Rugosa roses in the back yard—new magenta blossoms side by side with rusty red rose hips—when I heard the geese coming from the other side of the house. They were low and honking and would fly almost above me, I was sure, although the roof of my house was between us and I could not see them or the trajectory of their path. The camera was on a tripod. I swiveled it, pointing upward and just above the trees on the hillside. The geese came in. I followed them, I hoped, with the lens, blindly, without benefit of the monitor, and snapped, and then they were gone, and I wondered if I had captured anything more than this morning’s mottled sky, both open and closed, like a camera while it is taking a picture, or a summer season developing into fall.
