01-03 Handspun














Balled up, knotty, rough, almost fraying apart, near unravelling. Squeeze it hard enough, it hurts you, and might even cut you. Soak it in water, the deepest strand will never fully dry, as an old, dying man hangs on, retaining a thread of memory.

Love the image and the texture. B/W or sepia might be an option to consider on this one.

Now this I like! Beautiful colors, wonderful texture, perfect lighting - all in all an excellent piece. You should consider putting this one up for sale - would be a wonderful find for anyone interested in 'nautical' themed photos...

I can feel it cutting my hands, run my hands over the coils and it bites into my flesh.

Nice job, having it fade away, coils that look somewhat messy but still organized, like carefully controlled chaos.

I am much a fan.
