Flowers—Lines—Ice

Well, see, I accidentally tripped on the vines and fell inside…

Remember that abandoned structure I longingly drooled over last week?  Well, I went back… I’ve never taken pictures so quickly in my life.  I have LOTS… Shhhhhhh.  More to come!

  2. Glad you went back, especially for the second one (P1130403). Love how the oxbow’s shadow accentuates the original in the vine. The overall effect reminds me a lot of some eucalyptus bark that I’ve seen. Also glad you weren’t hurt when you tripped–I told you to be careful!

    • Actually, I was getting my feet all caught in the vines, but needed an excuse for the trespassing part. 🙂 Do you have any shots of the eucalyptus bark? I’d love to see it!

    • Tee hee hee. 🙂 Oh yes… no worries: I tripped into the building (that’s how I accidentally trespassed).

  4. Beautiful shots…and it’s easy to see how one could “trip on the vines.” Good for you. 🙂

  5. Nice work! I especially like the first and third photos.

    I think you are using photography to get away from the world and off by yourself!!! Ha ha! You are very tricky. Don’t you feel like we did when we were little and going “exploring”?

    • Poupie, you’re right about getting away… It’s essential to explore and keep discovering. It’s a blast!! And it ABSOLUTELY makes me feel like when we were little. By the way, I often see those huge drain pipes that we used to crawl through with Fred. Do you remember those, how we use to go under the ground, even the ones that had water running through them? I saw one the other day that was exactly like the ones we crept through, but didn’t have time to get the photo. I’ll back and shoot when I have the chance. 🙂

  7. ! ah, great you went back and in

    I especially like the 2nd and 4th photo, balancing as they do on the verge of abstraction

    Melanie, they are all lovely, but I especially like the first two.

  9. Long may you trip Melanie….although you don’t seen to be ‘inside’ just yet 😉 ….looking forward to the rest if they are like these

    • Right 🙂 The inside is around the corner… I was trying to figure out how to group all my photos, and the vines seemed to “creep” up (ha ha) into a lots of them so, I put several of those together for today.

    When I looked at the first one, I saw bare trees with sky behind. Like looking up at the giant redwoods. I still see it if I don’t consciously try to see the boards. Do you see it? I was focusing on the photograph from the top down, I think. I still didn’t see the boards until I squinted at them. Fascinating. I love this photograph on several levels. We see what we expect to see?

    All of these are wonderful, as usual.

    • Such an interesting perspective, George. I just went to look, and I kind of do see what you’ve described! Thank you for pointing this out! I love it when I can see my photographs in a different way.

  13. A beautiful set of pictures here. The vines are a pleasure to look at.

    • Thank you, Shimon. I was really quite fascinated by their shapes and by how they were taking over this old abandoned place.

  14. Perfect,
    Very good to just have the courage to go…
    nice pictures…
