photo shoot

This was a difficult shoot. Contrary to popular belief, it's hard to frame a shot before the snails get away.

The story: I went out to get the mail and met one of these little guys along the way. At first, I thought I should go in and get the salt, like my mom taught me. But on further inspection, I discovered 38 snails making a trek from the bushes to the grass. There were a few grandpa ones and there were these littlest tiny snail that my fingers could barely pick them up. After a quick photo shoot, being caught in a lie by a door-to-door salesman, and throwing all the snails into the grass, I finally got the mail.
