Looking for meanings in words, images and sounds
This is my response to Weekly Photo Challenge: Fray
Nice close up shot for the Fray WPC Challenge.
Many thanks, Daniel 🙂

Beautiful image, Paula. 🙂
🙂 thanks Sylvia. It is a photogenic little plant/flower
No doubt about the theme hit so well… 😉
😀 I was really relieved I hadn’t posted this oldie before 🙂 Thank you for the visit and cool comment Drake. Are you having fun this weekend?
Except from last monday so I still have vacation – next week too… 😀
Good for you, you lucky Drake 😀
In danish it is said that the luck follows those who are crazy – why do all say i’m lucky..? 😀 😀 😀
In that case I should be very lucky too 😆
Good to be two in such a serious matter… 😀
Interesting photo Paula.
Thank you, Colline. I was glad I had something for the challenge. My next choice would be hubby’s torn jeans, but I did not want to shame him 😉 😀
I will have to think a bit more for this week’s challenge Paula. You have certainly thought of something unique.
It’s fascinating what we can find in nature. Unfortunately, I found this one a bit further from home in Austrian mountains.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with torn jeans!
I respect thy Hubby, he’s a wise man.
😆 He must be, he is married to me 😛
Better his jeans than his underwear!
I’m curious to know the contents of the WordPress post 🙂 I often start at the wrong end of this challenge and tonight is no exception. My husband isn’t the one for the ragged jeans but I’m sad to say that I am. Maybe I should go with that?
Meantime I like your image and the fact that it is not your nerves that are fraying. 🙂 Have a happy weekend, Paula.
Have a happy one too, Jo 🙂
Beautful shot Paula. I actually had something similar that I was thinking about posting!!
With your garden I am not surprised. You usually post two posts for the challenges, so I am looking forward to seeing the other one too 😀
I might think of something or see if I have any drafts that can fit. I wish you a wonderful weekend too Paula. I’m “home alone” this evening (only me and the sleeping kid at home).
Good night to both of you 🙂 kyss
Beautiful shot, fraying is quite natural
True!!! Fraying is part of nature. Thank you very much Chris 🙂
Your picture just reminded me of that!
Beautiful picture and perfect for the challenge, Paula! 🙂
Oh thank you very much, Linda. 🙂
This photo offers so many parts: the delicate matting of the calyx; the maroon of the centre of the filaments; the airy hairs surrounding the maroon.
I hope you feel relaxed rather than frayed! I’m enjoying your images and sound more and more now I’m enjoying solitude and my own company. They give me a brief moment of focus and meditation as I try to slow down into pleasure at being in my beautiful part of the world. They also challenge my vocabulary as I try to appreciate with more than a “like”!
Dear Meg, reading you is certainly increasing my vocabulary 🙂 I wish I could write you a longer thank you reply, but it is my bed time now and can hardly keep my eyes open. Thank you for all your attention and company. I really appreciate it 🙂
No need for longer reply – or even one at all. You’ve given me my pleasure with the photo. Sleep well.
I appreciate it, Cee 🙂
Such rich colors and attractive shapes.
Is this considered macro? I like seeing all the frayed hairs of what I’m assuming to be a seed pod. But I’m probably wrong!
I would call it a close up. I am not sure what plant and in what form it is. Thank you, Emilio for taking interest 🙂
Great macro photo Paula. I was going to guess you would use music from The Fray “how to save a life” but I was wrong again. 🙂
Have a good weekend.
Wonderful capture Paula. Perfect for the theme.
Aw, thank you, Sue 🙂
Some flowers look better in a state beyond that in which we normally admire ’em, eh, Paula ? 😀
Absolutely! Happy to read you M-R
Beautiful textures Paula!
Per ultima arriivo anch’io…
Con grande ammirazione per la tua splendida foto!

Love the softness of the filaments. Fraying is such a gentle word.
I am happy you do, Hilary. Thank you for your nice visit. 🙂
Soft and delicate, it’s a beautiful image – great close up. Another great musical selection , another band I really enjoy.

Fantastic shot and texture Paula. I love it! 😀 ♥ Hugs ♥
A real beauty, Paula, with all the tiny details visible perfectly. If I didn’ t know it was a plant, my imagination could see a part of a bird’ s wing in it… 🙂
Frayed maybe but noting down without a nod to fading beauty. Beautiful colours and tones Paula!
An exceptional shot! And I agree….perfect for the challenge.
