About Me

My photo
Delta, British Columbia, Canada
I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

Saturday Photo Hunters - TWISTED

Since I wasn't able to get a photo of my brain, I had to use my brain to find something else to enter. AND, for some weird twisted reason, these photos will enlarge if you click on them. Most of the time my photos won't enlarge and I have no idea why they sometimes will and sometimes won't. *shrug*

1. I'm hopeless at untwisting cords, especially all the ones under and behind my computer desk, so I got down on my hands and knees, twisting my body into a pretzel to get this shot.

2. Then I remembered I'd been very lazy after Christmas and had just loosely wound up the outdoor lights and tossed them in the storage room upstairs. At least I know where they are for next year.
3. Finally, I remember the tree that I saw just outside of Marlborough, England, in November 2006 and how its bare branches, all knotty and twisty, stood out against the greyish sky that day.
There you have it...my entries for the "Twisted" theme today. To view more photos on this theme,

You are early today, too, adn we will have one twisted thought in common. Stop by tomorrow to visit mine--it will go up at midnight.

Carver said...

My cords are always twisted like that too. I love the tree. Great shot. Hope you have a good weekend.

mirage2g said...

I'm too old to get down behind the computer to take pictures of those plugs and wires...LOL I took my twisted picture standing up!! Loved all your shots!!

jmb said...

maiylah said...

cool 'twist(ed)' shots! :)
happy photo hunting! :)

mharia said...

wow ... that tree shot is amazing! great ideas for this week's theme! :)

Nancy said...

Great "twisted" photos. I think you should leave the lights that way. They form the cutest little mound... besides you had enough on your plate during Christmas without worrying about the lights- a gentle reminder that lifes too short to worry about unimportant things like "twisted" Christmas lights. Blessings to you and have a great weekend!

That's a familiar sight of twisted wires if I look behind the table :P

That is a really gorgeous twisted tree :)

Great choices! I hate twisted cords, yet somehow they always end up twisted together.

jams o donnell said...

Great shots! I'm just like you with the Xmas lights. I get mine untwisted in time for twelfth night! Happy weekend

monaco said...

I have a similar shot of twisted cords and cable behind our PC.

Cindy said...

My computer cords look like that too. I've tried making them all nice and neat, but I swear they twist themselves back up as soon as I'm not looking.
Great take on the theme, and yet another one that never even occurred to me.
My take on "twisted" is Here

Cathi said...

I love your "twisted" photos! Interestingly...we have some of the same twisted scenes in our house. Happy Photo Hunt. Mine's up too.

Isn't it annoying how wires always get twisted together, and Christmas tree lights - have fun next year! The tree is lovely, just perfect.

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Oh, Leslie, you have cheered me up, as I thought I was the only one who couldn't "untwist" computer and Xmas light wires!
