I followed you here from your comment to my blog. I really like the eye you bring to your photographs; common things from uncommon angles that make me pause a moment before seeing clearly. You have a good eye.

Thanks for your visit - I'll promise to be better when our renovation is done. Have a great weekend!

I love this shot. It's very abstract although I know it's a detail.

And I know it feels just how it looks - these leaves must've cured all the nettle stings I ever got as a child :)

Lucy, the answer to your question on the crosses I posted is rather lengthy, So I posted the history of these crosses on my regular blog. You can find it by clicking on the link at the top of the sidebar or go here: http://cashjocky.blogspot.com/2011/04/good-friday.html

Hello Everyone who commented on the photo of a Dock Leaf.

I'm glad you like it.

I'm also glad I took the photo for, later in the very day I posted this picture, someone came along with a stick, swiped the heads off all the nearby dandelions - and most of the leaves from this plant.

It's interesting (and sad) that some plants are given respect and others dismissed as 'mere weeds' (wherever they are growing) and open to random destruction.

It's interesting too how looking at the world through a camera lens increases one's appreciation of plants which can otherwise be considered of no count at all - I'll have to be careful what I find myself photographically attached to!
