Call me Spike

Frost covered weeds still manage to grow and thrive in the cold.

I saw this wonderful speckled white plant growing from a ditch yesterday morning and it looked very ominous. When I converted it to black and white I saw myself looking at something abstract, possibly evil, something that could be microscopic or huge.

I wouldn’t hang this photo on a wall, but I love it!

    Just stumbled across your blog – I really like this pic and your description.

    Could see it being used for an extravagant gothic type of wallpaper!

    Very nice shot, I love the b+w and the “sharp” things.. It’s been a while since I was here commenting, i’m sorry. I’ll try to get better.

    it reminds me of Predator (the Predator’s face), or of the giant squid in Pirates Of The Carribean 3.

    or the big worms in Dune.

    scary, anyway.
