Hang On



I took this photo at a local park. A small limb from a huge tree had fallen onto a metal and wood fence.

There was something about the way this little bare tree piece clung to the rusty metal and darkened wood that touched me.

It seemed to say to me 'hang on'.

You can find many little and large messages in nature.

Nice picture. You had to tell me what that was, since it didn't reveal itself until you told me. Looks like you're having fun... :-)

We just have to learn to slow down and notice. And listen :)
Have a great day, Di!

Aw...how touching, Dianne.

AWESOME capture! Love the various textures within the whole image - metal, wood, and the tree in the background.

Great FOCUS!

It does look like it's trying to hang on with all it's might. Good shot!

CrystalChick said...

Really neat photo, and yes, I can see the little branch saying 'hang on'! That's an appropriate message for alot of things coming in the New Year.

Fireblossom said...

You can, indeed.

I think I see some personal reflection in the interpretation.

Mare said...

I always see things in nature and love it. I think that kind of creative interpretation is a right brain talent.

I Kove That Picture....There is something so vulnerable about that dear branch....

Thabks, my dear, for your kind and caring words about my dear darling Sweetie.....

Just goes to prove that when you open up your eyes and look around, you can see all sorts of interesting things!

Nature is very inspirational :) All we have to do is look.

Interesting entanglement. I like the background - colorful, painterly trees and a soft blue sky.

Oh..how wonderful that you caught that...it does seem to say, 'hang on' and I need that message right now...hugs...Michelle

I thought this could have been discarded grape stems, or a bit of ironworks. A tree limb? Very cool! :-)

Happy Elf Mom said...

I was thinking grape vine as well. It is a lovely photo.

I love it. I think you're right. "Hang on. Hang in there!"
Louder than words, perhaps.

Sometimes when you're branching out, you need a little help; someone to cling to!

Love the photo!
