weekly photo challenge: curves

Walking around my garden, i marvel at the different loops and curves a single tendril could have. Aren’t they pretty?

This one formed so many little loops before curving into a letter C.

How about double loops with each loop curving into more loops for each loop. Oh did i make any sense?

This one has even some web encapsulated by the spirally curves.

And if you’re wondering where these loops and curves came from? They are tendrils from my dazzling and exotic red passion flower plant.

tagged X: xyloid

The vivid orange color of the crossandra flower petal looked so attractive and striking against the woody earthy background. I made use of driftwood and it’s xyloid texture provided character and substance on my rather simple photo subject. The soft and creamy bokeh at the right side of the photo made it more visually appealing and pleasant.
