You always find something creative in subjects that others might just pass by. Lines, shapes, texture, colour and the tiniest shadow. Well done

Your words made me think of that tape measure theory. Where you measure how old you are and how old you hope to get. For me there is not many inches left. It really makes you take notice. I see a little doggie profile with it's ear hanging down. Like a spaniel. Too bad that little pebble wasn't where the eye should be.

Keep coming back to this. The wiggly bit of string is making fun of the stiff, correct vertical line. That's why it's smiling...

I see the string investigating the green lines, finding out if they are the same species. It turns out they are mere imitations...

Very well put and a good set-up for the shot, Helen WinkGrin

The string looks like a large cartoon mouth from the side, about to gulp those two green streams flowing into it Grin
