Like the way the aged wood contrasts with the new growth of the plants. Very Nice.

Now this had a *nice* visual as the picture loaded - scrolling down the fence and then appearing as IF the plants were growing right into the frame!

Hi Lori,
I love this photo. The orange with the green is beuatiful.

A nice visual I Ching metaphor, Lori! You ought to make this the start of a series.... 64 photos, a Texan photographic I Ching analog.

I may try to do one myself....

This is extraordinarily beautiful to me. Just what I needed to see today. Thanks so much!

Lee said...

is that longhorn orange? ;) thanks for the cd suggestion, I didn't know about it and it's right up my alley!

Mise said...

Gorgeous, Lori. And isn't it lovely to see fresh new shoots emerging. :D

Soon, new shoots moving downward out of the decaying wood...

Hey there! Yay, it's the weekend and there's time for more art!

Bookbabie: Welcome, and thanks.

Karen: Who knew I was offering up animation! :-) Am tickled to hear there's yet another dimension to the image.

Polona: Thanks so much -- I kept staring at the pic, wondering about it, when the elements clarified into that hexagram.

Mauricio: Hi there -- how is that exhibit going? Thanks for the comment, and for the International Women's Day Congrats!

Redchelle: Hi there -- welcome to a bit of my world, am glad you like!

Larry: I really really like that idea. Wonder if I can muster up the time to pull it together. Stay tuned...

AM: Glad to hear it's a good one for you! Have a wonderful weekend, y'hear?

Lee: Well, it was really more a faded red, but by the time I amped the sunlight a bit it warmed right up. :-) UT would have my hide if they thought I was infringing on their Orange...and enjoy that bluegrass.

Mise: Thanks, and yes -- although time has flown by so fast for me this year, I'm feeling a little dizzy that it's spring already.

Marly: Ooooooh. Chill-bumps!
