Nice: The clean, metallic, silver-colored pipe, exposed after being repaired. The expertly dug trench: steps, straight lines, and symmetry…reminiscent of the shapes and solidity of a step pyramid…or the excavations for a skyscraper. The warm, brown, upturned dirt that feels good as it shifts and flows through your fingers. The bright orange fencing announcing and setting off man’s work in the midst of a forest, and protecting the area as if it were a surgery on one of earth’s veins…or as if an archeological excavation were underway.
The pictures could have been better, but given as how they were taken (on an overcast 2-14-09) with a cell phone and on horseback, I’m just glad they were not blurred.
