String on a charred gatepost, Jack’s Drove, Tealham Moor, Somerset Levels; 23 July 2010.

The pale string, which is holding the gate shut, stands out against the blackened post. And there is a contrast of orientation and texture between the string and the blackened wood’s grain.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    I like this picture a lot, with the charred wood probably not being as old as it feels, and the knot in the string possibly tied as a reminder for a fuzzy brain. 🙂
    It reminds me of something (or someone) – if only I could recall what I was supposed to remember. 😀

    Paula, thanks for the input! One of the things I like about the small area of the Levels I visit is that its no frills scruffy. quite a bit of agricultural rubbish around, and all sorts of thing holding gates in place – inc this string! A

    What a fun abstract! Your sense of complementary angles has served you well here. Love the deep, rich blacks.

    Yea, farmers are very fond of this type of holds bales of hay or straw in shape, they therefore have lots of it and is therefore cheap and strong!!
