All tied up (theme)

by Helen Hooker March. 17, 2010 5872 views

During my walk between the car park and school this morning I was musing about what I might shoot for today??s theme when I spotted this piece of string tied to one of the fence posts around the school field. I have no idea what the string is for but it has evidently been there for quite some time as its home to quite an impressive colony of lichen. I decided a monochrome treatment would work well with this shot to bring out the texture of the lichen and the old wooden fence post.

Great find. Obviously I haven't seen it in colour, but your choice on mono looks very good to me.

Very Paul Strand, and quite beautiful.

And now for my silly mood... Possible explanations for said string:
1. A tug o' war with vertically challenged people - won by the tree
2. An object exercise for Arachne who previously suffered from arachnophobia
3. An alien in disguise. Go check tomorrow to see whether it's moved. If so, head for the hills
