Only A Line

Lao Tzu: "Life and death are one thread, the same line viewed from different sides."

It's a single strand of web across the center of a log. I had to shoot it. There's a larger version if you want to see more detail.

It's simple and beautifully taken. Love the converging lines. Perfect focus on the thread

A great, big, richly textured, narrowly defined, delicately strung and deeply-focused "THANK YOU!" to everyone! Thank you for stopping by, thank you for enjoying this simple shot, thank you for your encouraging comments. Now and then, I like to try a no-frills approach. But I'm still addicted to my macro lens.

Again, thank you so much!
