Photo Hunters~ Twist(ed)

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

In a twisted little way this week proved to be a challenge. For once I had plenty of time and opportunity to capture some photos especially for the theme, but I had trouble finding anything that spoke to me. I looked and searched, and hmmmmm'd and Haaaaaa'd, and nothing said, "pick me....pick me!"

Finally last night, as I was playing outside with Sugar Bear, I spied a lovely white rope that Hubby had used as a make shift fence to keep Tiny in our yard. I admired the lovely braiding, and the twists and turns and tucks the knots possessed. I bustled back to the house for my camera to capture some photos to share.









Thank you for coming by my blog this week. I appreciate the time you take to look, read, and comment. Have a great weekend.

Well, for not knowing until the last moment, you did a fantastic job. You took something such as rope and turned it into a beautiful subject.

I hope you are having a good weekend.

Heart of Rachel said...

Hi Corey. Those are excellent shots of twisted knots. Thank you for visiting.

tommie said...

You make rope look good!

Tyra in Vaxholm said...

Good choice and excellent shots!

CrazyCath said...

Great shots. I am fascinated by close up right now so I find this beautiful.
Well done!

holly said...

niiiice, but you could *also* have tried taking a picture of twisted sister. i hear they're not busy these days.

wait - that second photo down. that's a little "suggestive". it's like the rope pieces are 'toying' with each other. they want to touch - but they dare not. or, they dare *knot*...

sorry. i'm so sorry. i'll go to bed now. :)

Thank you for coming to see my twisted tree. Your photographs are exquisite. I especially like the Sugar Bear images you shared. It is so great to see little ones having fun. -- Margy
