Twine and texture


Out for a walk, this caught my eye.  It's just a bit of baler twine holding a gate together, but I liked the textures highlighted by the strong side-lighting.   It somehow reminded me of one of those bright blue damsel flies you see around ponds in the summer.

  2. And so it would seem that baling twine is found all over this world and used for all manner of purposes.

  3. 'damsel flies': Yes, truly seen with an artist's eye. I like this kind of thing too. There's a certain beauty in weathered wood. It has a story to tell.

  7. I think that is an excellent photo. Now you can go out and find a real damsel fly and add it?

  8. Nice catch, Jenny. Add baler twine to duct tape as an essential for the tool drawer.
