Photo Hunters - STRING

The theme this week is "String(s)" and I was trying to figure out how to make a photograph of string interesting. Now some people, I'm sure, thought of musical instruments with strings - like a guitar, violin, cello, etc. And others perhaps thought of food like spaghetti or angel hair pasta. Still others might have gone with a badminton or tennis racquet. However, since I'm still learning all the functions of my camera, I decided to go with a simple macro of some twine that I found in my junk drawer. (You all have a junk drawer - you know you do!) Does the photo remind you of anything else? Click to enlarge.

















Happy Photo Hunting, everyone! To see photos from other participants, go to tnchick here.

I like this picture a lot! Your profile page sounds interesting! I love teachers but I am kind of mad at ours now because they are striking. Did you ever go thru something like that?
