Snapshot

battenkill

If the black fly is the state bug of Vermont and granite the state crop, the state snapshot has to be the green weedy field dotted with brown and black-and-white dairy cows set against purplish mountain backdrop.  This is a snapshot (minus the cows which weren’t there the last time I drove by) I see every spring morning while dropping the boys at school on one of the many days we miss the bus.

I always have the same thought as I go by my favourite snapshot, set next to the Battenkill River across from our rec park:  that would make a great painting.

And then it’s gone and the road before me fills up with my to-do list for the day.
