Stella's string

By helenlinda
Its been 35 years this week since I first started teaching at Raddlebarn. I've had 3 leaving "do's" and come back for more.
I wanted to put something up that had a school flavour and Stella had delivery of this fantastic ball of string today at school and so I brought it home to photograph. So here hot off the press is Stella's string to mark the occassion
Thanks for comments on yesterday's flower
and thanks for looking

I love pictures such as this with simple lines and shadows. Good use of light to emphasize the patterns.

Thanks everyone!
I had such fun with this, and it was really hard to know which photo to choose, so at some point I may put another up.
Thanks Mick for encouraging me to keep on the straight and narrow - lines and curves included!
