Last week I learnt another meaning for AF - Atrial Fibrillation, which took me into hospital, and that's why I was a bit quiet on the site. It's simply an accelerated heart rate, which my father and two of my brothers also suffer with, so it's an inherited condition.
Anyway, that's enough about me. Here's one for Shadows Saturday, a follow-up to my "Keep Off The Grass", a more detailed picture of the artistic hemp fence at the Eden Project. Two versions, one in mono, and this time I have chosen to lead with the original colour version since most of you preferred that last time. It looks a bit like sepia, but this was the actual colour of the hemp and decking.
Pamela.

V2 for me. It's about the shadows rather than the rope and metal. I like the way it mimics a spider's web.
Sorry to hear about your health scare, but at least it's been diagnosed and it is treatable.

The colour one definitely appeals to me more, Pamela. It feels 'less busy' and the colours are lovely too! A bit of a shame to lose those colours Smile

Good grief...I'm so glad the AF didn't turn into anything worse!

You are on the growing list of members having health scares on the site Pamela.
Perhaps photography is bad for your health !!
Strong shadows here,and thanks for your link you sent me.
However,I do find that Latin gibberish bad for my health too !!

Love the perfect colour-matched decking and hemp in v1, but the intricate cats cradle shadows of v2 float my boat more.
