UnAnsel Series – Love in the Mist … Twisted

Thanks to Sharon over at newpillowbook for suggesting I start to call this series the “UnAnsel Series”. I always thought “Anti-Ansel Adams” sounded a bit harsh and inflammatory, but I couldn’t think of another way to describe this type of selective blurriness. (It really IS selective … honest!) ūüôā

Anyway, the UnAnsel Series it is from now on.

I’m throwing another entry into the weekly challenge pot, too, because this Love-in-the-Mist flower, as it begins to die down, definitely shows signs of being rather twisted.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Twist

I wasn’t keen on this week’s challenge. Firstly, because I don’t have internet anymore at my house and only have limited time at the library to log on. And secondly,¬†because I have to rely on the pictures I have stored on my computer (which aren’t many¬†since I¬†lost everything from an external hard drive).

Most of my stuff is nature-focused, for no better reason than it’s easier to find and closer to home.¬†But I do get a bit of a kick¬†when I come across an example of¬†nature reclaiming its territory. On this day, I noticed that somebody had spray painted a wall along a trail in the woods. They had pulled away¬†(rather forcefully and dismissively)¬†a lot of the ivy that had originally clung to the wall in order to create the space to paint, and piles of it were dumped on the ground alongside.¬†The twist in this tale¬†is that¬†the plant world¬†doesn’t go out like that, and¬†in parts, little by little, and inch by inch, the ivy¬†was beginning to creep back and reclaim the wall.
