Hanging in the balance

I've always found spiderwebs fascinating. The delicateness, the intricateness, the uniqueness. It's so amazing how spiders build these webs, often spanning amazing distances to weave such intricate designs. It reminds you that life, like these webs hangs by a balance. One we weave and take care of. It can be fragile but so beautiful as well. 
 I found these stunning webs on my walk to school one morning. What started off as a frazzling morning quickly became a morning where I appreciated the balance I have found in my life. The intricate web I have woven. One where I string together my hopes and ambitions, fun and work.
I wish I saw webs like these more often. They remind me that life may be delicate and intricate at times but, from a distance it's beautiful and amazing.

The webs are truly incredible, as you said. I love the fact that most people would walk by without noticing, but you, on the other hand, found beauty and meaning, and most importantly a photographic moment.

These are amazing shots, Tamar! They are so intricate and I love how they look on the black chain link fence. That was a great find! We watched a spider spin a huge web on our patio after dark recently and it was fascinating. I was going to take photos the next morning, but it had disappeared. It was a shame after all his hard work!

What a coincidence I've posted a picture of a spider's web too.
I love spider's webs especially ones with raindrops on them.
I love how yours are on the black gate really shows them off nicely. They look like delicate lace.
