Photo Hunt - Twisted


The subject for this week's entry for Photo Hunt is twisted. We still have not taken down the string or cut down the dead Morning Glory stems from last summer. The test of the string and the twisted nateure of the plant provide a double whammy for this week's theme

Good Shot! I thought it was a frayed rope until I read your post... morning glory vines involved!!

ellen b said...

Nice. I like the frayed twisted rope in black and white...

-TNChick- said...

... that looks like twine!

Natalie said...

Such neat images, very original!

julie said...

That is a natural twist :) Nice theme.

Barbara H. said...

I was wishing I had taken a picture of our morning glory from last year. My husband just cut the grass for the first time this spring, and ours was on the ground, so the old vines are gone for now. I am glad you captured some!

Sassy Mama Bear said...

B&W really made the picture more intense. Great post for the theme. Mine is up @ The Cafe.

eastcoastlife said...

Love the black and white composition.
In Chinese society, if a woman is referred to as a morning glory flower, it means she has pass her prime.

Someone will get a black eye if he calls me that! hahaha....

pat said...

Great shots - love that you put them in b&w.

Happy Weekend.

Yoshi said...

Jennifer in OR said...

Very nice! It took me a moment to figure out what that was. An amazingly magnified human hair? Oh, wait, of course, string, twine. Lovely black & white.

Very interesting! At first I thought it was a photo of barbed wire until I looked closer.

so the stem incorporated itself with the string? These are great photos, I love the effect and the thought of the vine crawling up inch by inch up the sting.

SabineM said...

WHAt a fabulous shots! My favorite photos of this Photo Hunt!

elasticwaistbandlady said...

I didn't know that Morning Glory's had such twisty vines.

They can tie up some of their flowering competitiors and take over the whole garden.

Don't turn your back on them for a moment, jams.

jams o donnell said...

They can be rampant. They also self seed with abandon. Still we love them to bits!

Randi said...

I love this b/w photo!!!
Very creative!
Happy weekend:
