Saturday Snapshot

January 4, 2014

They’re adding a couple of new streets to our neighborhood and, now that the new streets are paved, I’ve been watching their progress when I take my morning walk.  When this spool of cable appeared I had to stop and take a picture because I loved the colors and lines.


Saturday Snapshot was started by Alyce of At Home With Books and is hosted by Melinda of West Metro Mommy.  It’s easy to participate – just post a picture that was taken by you, a friend, or a family member and add your link on Melinda’s site.

    Great photo. I’m not sure I would have known what it was.

    Thats great – I love the dark with the light… cool close up.

    I’m liking this picture as much for the pleasant surprise of what I’m seeing in a book blog as for the colors themselves! Neat.

    Nice! I’m finding myself drawn to taking pictures more and more based on lines at different angles.

    Wow… it’s so cool! It reminds me of the rubber bangle bracelets I’ve seen young girls wear stacked on their wrists.

    You win for the most artsy picture of the day. I had no idea it was cable until you told me.

    Wow. Love it.

    I love that – it’s amazing how something quite ordinary can look so beautiful and artistic. We just have to look at things differently, which is what I’ve just been saying on Facebook! Thankyou for visiting my blog.

    That is very cool!

    You have quite an eye; that is a very cool picture!

    Nice job capturing something that the rest of us would have passed on by! (Or, at least I would, I’m not that creative.) You have the vision!

    I do like those colours.

  21. January 4, 2014 3:56 pm

    Oh, very cool! I tried to guess what it was before reading your post and the closest I could come was some science fair or the cover of a YA/scifi book. I was so far off, lol!

    Who would think a spool of cable could be so pretty? Glad you thought to take a picture, and to share it!

  23. January 4, 2014 5:59 pm
