Twigs and stumps


Found exactly like this.
Some Andy Goldsworthy-esque phantom left it for someone to discover.

What I love most about this shot is the light catching some of the grass, so that the individual leaves look grey.

this a great sculpture of nature
and better your artist's eye!

Goldsworthy indeed.

However, I believe this is the remains of a golem--a partial skeleton--toppled when a passing swallow dipped and seized a letter from his burning forehead.

Is it luck ... or a special eye to find beautiness?
I checked out the work of Andy Goldsworthy and found some similar forms in

Similar perceptions across the world.

The grass reflects the branches, and the branches reflect the trunks. Next you'll show us the woods.

Hi there -- another round of "thankyews" -- I'm always delighted when an especially unusual thing catches your eyes as well as mine.

Olga: It was one of those bright winter-light days where the color of sunlight is a little cold, yet stunningly bright. But some of that grey grass really is grey -- dried out and frost-bitten.

Frank: I don't know who so carefully piled the twigs on the stump, but what a delight to find, and share!

Marly: I got that wonderful combo ripple of "Oh-Ho!" surprise and "Ah! Ha!" delight through my synapses at the quick picture your comment painted in my mind's eye. Now, if I could only catch that sparrow...

PMBC: As one person I worked with once said, "I'd rather be lucky than smart." I loved that image you found! Twigs everywhere!

Ed: As soon as I find my way out of the forest, I am sure I'll find a tree or three. :-)

MjM: It's just that you're tired from drawing all those robots. I am so glad you liked!

Raindog: You live in the Austin area, right? Wander near Shoal Creek, off Lamar and Gaston. No telling what you might see.

Twigs have begun to fascinate me lately, reminding me I should have been more aware of them all my life. I particularly like yours.
