I clearly remember taking this photo last year – I was experimenting with trying to get closeup shots and it didn’t turn out quite as I wanted it to, but I kept it just in case it could be used sometime down the track. And its time is now!
Just in case you can’t tell what it is, it’s a branch with some sort of hairy looking lichen growing across it – I know, I’m so technical 🙂
I also know that it really isn’t a very good photo but it says something to me so I’m sticking with it!
I like the way it looks hairy and fuzzy around the edges but at the same time a bit abstract, as it isn’t all that obvious what it actually is a photo of. Would you have known what it was if I hadn’t told you?
My life has been a bit fuzzy around the edges and abstract this week too so it’s quite fitting to use this photo.
This week’s photo challenge is all about creating the abstract from the concrete and familiar.
Enjoy the weekend!
