Karen McL said...

The asymmetry of these items is a grand statement of our times.

Wonderful shot - and see...it makes me THINK! :-)

This is very cool - I have a friend who took photographs of the these trees while in Florida and she has hand colored them etc and made them really large like 36" x 24" and has the prints laid onto canvas and they are beautiful let me tell you.They are monochromatic in a Sepia.

a real nifty person can stick outlets almost anywhere.

I love it that its tucked in with a sawed off nub and held in by screws and there is also a wooden peg in there to. That is a very cool pic. It almost reminds me of an old outbuilding on a farm that had a tree grow up next to it till they melded into one.

Great foto. Sometimes in India, nature and buildings merge just like that but with a lot of green.
When are you going to Paris?

I thought "wisteria," too. Then "driftwood" and the mixture of human-made objects and formerly living objects that end up on the ocean shores where I have spent so much time. Here, though, the plant seems to be alive while the electricity is disconnected.

Funny where the mind goes . . . I also remembered when I was in my 20s and working at a place that made heart pacemakers. There was a numerical color code for the pacemaker wires. The number for black was zero. I immediately remembered Bob Dylan singing, "Black is the color where none is the number," on "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall," and puzzled at the coincidence.

Your photos, drawings and poems speak to me. Thanks so much.

Hey ever'body...responses below.

(Since I woke up ridiculously early this morning, went out to a 24-hour chain restaurant for breakfast...and no one to draw. But I did hear about how one of the waiters became a grandpa on Valentine's Day.)

Switchsky: And what were YOU doing up at that hour? Or are you far afield east of here? Glad you liked...

Dave: Yepper. Badly butchered by the park's groundskeepers, but it was wisteria.

Karen: :-) I got the hint, but not the brain cells...

BenC: She always does, thank goodness. Even if the only celebrants left would be bacteria...

Sheri: Thanks! Your friend's work sounds really interesting -- you have a link to it?

Susangelique: I love that phrase and the image of melding into one. And am glad this got your words rolling!

Polona: Thanks muchly!

Pod: Yepper. Tristesse wisteria and junction box.

PMBC: Ooh, India must be an amazing place, given what you wrote. Ahhh. I need to save some $$ to go to Paris, but between you and Laura and others, I must go it seems.

Raindog: Thanks; this was for some reason suffused with emotion for me. But maybe that's my lack of sleep talkin'.

AM: Likewise.

ThomP: :-)
