City Daily Photo Theme Day: The Beauty of Decay

This ought to be an image of my declining brain - until yesterday, I forgot June started today! But a fragile, falling-apart cobweb seems a more palatable image:)

Enjoy all City Daily Photo theme entries here!

An example of decaying doesn't need a long time....

another clever interpretation

Birdman said...

Sometimes a last resort reaps benefits. Fine example here.

Great photo and so absolutely perfect for theme day. I wonder if webs are ever renovated. :)

LOL! but still an appropriate entry, me think :)

cieldequimper said...

It's a pretty brilliant take on the theme though!

Kaya said...

Lulu, you are incredible person!!! Picture is a WOW picture!!! It's my biggest dream to take picture of a web and maybe a spider.

Wish you a very good Saturday!!!

William Kendall said...

A splendid variation on the theme!

Excellent theme day shot.

Very intricate, in a very decaying kind of way! Happy June!

Amazing choice, great picture!

Fabulous closeup of the web. Pity the poor spider after all that work.

What a creative approach to decay, and I love your capture of the web...

Sharon said...

Great interpretation of the theme and pretty photo to boot.

Stuart said...

Reminds me of the WWW...flawed yet still functional...if you can avoid the "holes" in it. Nice shot.

Norma Beishir said...

I never thought I'd find a spider web beautiful, but this shot makes it look like lace....

Julie said...

Aren't spider webs the most gorgeous and intricate of structures. I love to watch them at work. I love your lateral thinking in choosing this breaking-apart web.

Thank you for your contribution to Theme Day.

photographic-sketchbook said...

Lovely shot and interesting interpretation. I wonder if there is beauty in decay or in our interpretation of it. There sure is abandonment...

RedPat said...

Wonderful - I like it a lot!

Peter said...

Very appropriate photo, sadness in decay.

Virginia said...

I LOVE this interpretation of our theme. Good one!

Bob Crowe said...

A creative treatment of the theme. If even the strong silk of the web is torn, what's left to hold the world together.

Thanks for your comment on St. Louis Daily Photo today.

Kay said...

Striking shot! I love spider webs and this one suits the theme very well.

Jack said...

Thanks so much everyone! Spiderwebs are hard but such fun to capture:)

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Fine contribution to today's Theme Day. Observing nature provides all the metaphors we ever need.

Time flies so it's easy to forget which month we're in. Nice find without the spider. :)
