Mr. DeMille, It's Time For My Close-Up

Linking to the very creative  RAZMATAZ    for my second Friday challenge.  Fun.  I may have to start using the term "faffing about". LOL. Thanks Chania for this fun and challenging exercicse!


The challenge was to photograph something very closely.  When objects are filmed this way, they take on new possibilities and characteristics we miss from afar.

So, what do you think it is?


Some sort of medical photography depicting the nervous system?



Or, is it a ball of string that has gone beserk?


Perhaps a bad hair day?

Those raised in the South may recognize it...


Now, I know you recognize it....


Spanish Moss.  Usually it hangs from trees, like this:





Thanks Chania, again, for bringing some creativity to my little blog.  Enjoying it.

That is amazing. I have never seen it hanging from trees. From your close up, I had no clue what it was. Lovley photos.

Personally, I thought it was a nice looking rubber band ball ;0}
Yes, I AM a bit challenged at times!

Take care, Sue

Well I was going to say some type of grass . I guess Moss would fit but in any case great pix.

Cool shots!! I never would have guessed Spanish Moss. I thought it was some sort of fabric fibre.

Yes, I am from South Carolina right near the Savannah River where Spanish Moss hangs from the trees. I did not guess right away though. Good idea. Hugs♥olive

Great idea and picture, I did not figure it out. I love Spanish Moss, my non southerner visitors always think it it a parasite and are surprised when I tell them it is an air plan with a life of its own.

Great challenge photo. I never would have guessed; though I was thinking possibly you managed to photograph the dust bunnies under my couch!
