Under tension? Or just hanging out?
Posted By: NaClH2O, 01-05-2008, 11:20 AM

Still processing stuff from late summer/early fall. Thought this one was interesting, with the obvious contrast. DS, Tamron 28-75 F2.8 f4.0 at 1/90.

Ahh, the vine tendrils - are not those the things used by vines to "climb"??

Great shot - very nice contrast!

Cheers,
Marc

Nor I - Although it was shot in summer, it makes me think of "spring" (groan).

Salty, you sure know how to spot stuff like this. A truly unusal image.

Very good shot. The colours are great and it's nice and sharp. I think Marc's got it right. Looks like the pea plant "hooks" (as we called them) from my mothers vegetable garden. Could also be a vine or from a grape plant.

Thanks everybody, Peter you nailed it, wild grape vine, but many vines have similar tendrils. Kudzu immediately comes to mind, as it is a real pest around here. Was walking along the Bronx river as it goes thru the "urban forest" part of the Botanical Garden. They have a 25 acre area they've left completely wild, both for the enjoyment of it and as a scientific "control" to test stuff like the effect of urban pollutants on the typical north eastern forest. It's about as restful an area as you can find without actually leaving the City.

I like how even Mother Nature gets those annoying kinks in her phone cord.

Hey Kim, the things plants can do are pretty amazing. This tendril was already stretched out and firmly attached to the bush the wild grapes were growing on. I liked the fact that there was the stretched out one and another one just waiting for something to attach itself too. And the light was great, that early morning "golden hour" light that makes everything so luminous.

How do you like your Tamron, thats the same lens I use.

I have found mine to be just a bit soft at the 78mm f2.8 end, but everywhere else its really nicely sharp.

I'd like to hear your thoughts...
