Flowers—Lines—Ice

Spiders

Or, rather, withered flowers that evoke the arachnidan shapes in which, strangely enough, I take great comfort.

  1. Really interesting images. I like the penultimate one alot, it has a menacing feel to it. (My Gravatar icon seems somewhat appropriate here ;-))

  2. It’s beautiful. —– the more try to handle as a graphical pattern,
    the more demonic nature is oozing out.

    • Wonderfully expressed, Yoshizen… I love that thought of the demonic nature oozing out. 🙂

  4. Since spiders are not my most favourite of fellow travellers, I prefer to regard these as stars (smile)

    They sure look like spiders, and the tones that yougave to these pictures enhance the details on them!

    • Thank you, Shimon. I’m so glad you like them. I am really eager to come over for another visit. I always read your posts, but then want to come back and re-read before I comment. It’s an issue of time. Your posts are always so thought-provoking, and I don’t want to rush to write something just to write something.

      • I appreciate the problem. It often seems overwhelming to me, to find each time I visit blogland, so many new posts to read. And I agree with you, there doesn’t seem much point in just writing something as a gesture of good manners.

    I like the composition of the first and last especially. You used the natural shape of the plant so effectively. I like the black and white and the sepia too. These are wonderful….as usual. Is there no end to the depth of your imagination?

    • Again, George, your encouragement means the world to me. Thank you.

  17. Great find and interpretation of the shapes….second to last one is my fave
