September 12th was one of those mornings that promises a rather uneventful day: quiet, overcast and the promise of a bit more sunlight. During my commute, I was pondering what I might want to capture for the day’s edition of the project and nothing really caught my eye.
As I neared the border between Massachusetts and New Hampshire, I decided to stop and check out what a little pond looked like with the muted light. After parking the car and walking over to the pond, only to discover that the beaver dam had been destroyed to leave no water behind, it became time to look around.
As happens so often, turning around 180 degrees and looking in that direction indicated that there might be some opportunities. I crossed the road and found this wild apple hanging on for dear life with the morning dew heavy all over it.
Of course, there is much significance to the apple in many mythologies, so you can opt for the one that tickles your fancy. Personally, I found it interesting that this apple is still hanging on a meager branch that looks barely able to support it, much less nourish it to grow; it appears to me that the apple has outstayed its welcome and is on its way out to rot before it even hits the ground.
Clearly, there can be some very deep meaning to that statement, but then again, I’m just a simple photographer…
