Detail of one of those things called "an installation."

Zip-tied plastic pipes?

Yes, Lots and lots of zip tied, pale green plastic pipes. An art "installation" in a botanic garden. Look at post #15908 in the ALPHABET RACE thread. Another "installation" photographed the same day/place, but somewhat more interesting.

Oh what the heck... Use bamboo sticks and steel wires at least. For real, that artist must know nothing as environmental friendly.

I would think that was the point the artist was trying to get across - that we live in a plastic jungle, which appears natural, but is actually not environmentally friendly at all. I doubt he just wanted to mimic bamboo

Suds after doing the dishes. This is an older shot I still love the structures made by the soap film I'd like to shoot this again.

Fascinating. I once did some ultra-macro of open-cell foam and it looks remarkably like this.

The second image is obviously watery reflections. The first is a decorative ball made of cloth fragments, an entry into a contest to make something decorative by recycling waste. I purposely made the second image a slightly soft, as sharpness detracted from the abstract effect.

Something in the water. I may flip this, at the least I need to move my wm but I think it would be better flipped horizontally for some reason.

I always love your water experiments. Keep them coming, they're awesome!

A new use for old tie-dye T-shirts. COOL!
