IN THE FIELD: Intertwined

Last week I had my Jeep checked out for the annual inspection we have here in Pennsylvania. While the guys were working on my trusty vehicle, I went for a walk about town to take advantage of the early morning sunshine.

I ended up in the area where several antique dealers have set up shops. None of them would open for another two hours, so everything of interest was locked up inside. Lucky for me though, one dealer left a bunch of stuff outside overnight.

I came across this huge macrame’ wall hanging stretched between two wooden rods, propped up by some old wooden posts. I couldn’t resist getting a shot of the golden color of the twine that was intensified by the warm sunlight

      Thanks Teri, right time, right place…I just surprised they left something like that out in the elements!

    That is very lovely! I like how the strands are each visible and have taken on that beautiful golden hue. 🙂

      The weaver was very talented. The sun was nice and cozy on that crisp morning which made for perfect conditions!

    Great shot, David! Love the pattern you captured and the lighting is excellent.

      Thanks Gracie, this is just a small section…the hanging was about four feet wide and in full morning sun. I underexposed this just a tiny bit (1/3rd stop)

    What a fascinating image – you see detail that others would miss. I’m not a photographer but I would say it was perfectly exposed, too! 🙂

      Thanks for the kind words Jo. I took two shots of this. One was taken metered as the camera recommended, and this one I underexposed. The first one is golden also, but this shot is just a little warmer/cozier.

    I like this one! The light is great!

      Thanks Cornel, the early morning light was beautiful that morning. It was crisp and clear!

    This one is a vote in favor of complexity.

    Boy I’ll say! The person who wove this little gem was talented indeed. And patient…especially because the material used was some kind of sisal or hemp. Neither of which is flexible like yarn tends to be.

    WOW! This is amazing work. And beautiful shot. Thanks and Love, nia

      It sure is wonderful weaving and I would imagine not easy to do with the material used!

    That’s lovely. This brings back memories. I used to make macrame projects when I was a kid.

      I remember those days in junior high school art class..weaving, macrame’, jewelry making, and pottery. How many macrame’ hanging plant holders did you make? LOL I think my Mom had a couple of dozen from us kids!
