Inspiration? Or accidental real-world reflection of your own thorny art?
Happenstance. I shoot these thorns at least once a year. They are very tiny. And I like thorns. :D
This is one plant I really don’t want to get a grip on.
Great photo which makes me move my hands away fast.
Oh I love this photo! Sharp in both meanings of the term. :)
This also reminds me that I have both of my legs and hands all scratched because I’m an idiot. Last Sunday I decided I had to get to a loquat tree in an abandoned vineyard my mother inherited. The vines have long been replaced by wild blackberries, tall and full of thorns. And, again because I’m an idiot, I went through them with only a pruning shear and a scythe, and worst of all, no gloves. I have a wedding next Saturday, there’s a part of me thinking maybe I should care about the state of my legs and hands… but whatever.

Nightjar, yikes! Blackberries are thorn forests. I hope the wedding goes okay and you’re all healed up.
