Why has somebody added a stripe of white paint to the strands of the rope? Are they hiding something? Some real rope at the core, perhaps?
I dunno, I s'pose if you can have wire wool you can have plastic rope, after all.
Have you noticed how I sometimes get my arguments tied in knots ?
What day is it?
Which way is up?
Are these my feet?

give a man enough rope.............. It's good to see that you have taken your photography in a new direction Mick. I can remember the days when you just used to photograph rust but now that the government are trying to put VAt on that you've moved on. I like a man who experiments......

It's very green, as has been noted. But that's what gets ya right in the eye, and that's what makes this particularly effective.

Re your "hair" remark on my own upload, if you have any pics of yourself back in the day, I could use a laff ........ Wink
