Invasion

This creeper, which has completely taken over a fence  I pass by on my walks everyday, looks like some sort of insatiable alien creature, when stripped of its ivy leaves.

  1. A decidedly creepy creeper indeed….so interesting in shape, form, texture and seemingly boundless “appetite” as it overtakes the life of that helpless fence. Great photo.

    • Thanks, Pablo. I hesitated on my choice for post-processing. I’m glad you think it works.

    • Thanks, Stuart. Don’t worry: I carry all the necessary laser weaponry on my outings.

    • Thank you, Karen. There is something beautiful about this vine, despite or thanks to (I can’t decide which) its creepiness.

    • Sandy, your comments often make me laugh out loud. You have the best sense of humor!

  7. Great detail…my only thought would be there is nowhere for the eye to rest…or at least I didn’t find one 😉

    • Thanks for this observation, Steve. I tried cropping from different angles to address this before I posted (because I felt the same way), but the creeper just outdid me! Perhaps we can consider it an “invasion” of the eye! 😉 Seriously, though, I wondered at the time of posting, if there are times when patterns and the overall “feel” of an image give it worth, when it is lacking a strong composition… Perhaps this can be a question for a future post.
