2014—Monkey’s Fist

This photograph is of a monkey’s fist, a type of marine knot used to weight the end of a rope for hurling to the dock or perhaps another ship. My husband tied this monkey’s fist at least 20 years ago on one end of a large spool of half inch rope. Yet another Flickr challenge, knots, prompted this photograph.
And as my friend Melinda has pointed out to me, I have once again ventured to “the dark side” because for today’s post, I added two textures to this photograph that create (I think) more interest and an aged look to it. (Focal Length 66mm, f/8, ISO 100, 1/4 second shutter speed)

  1. Very nice!!! Love the knot (pretty impressive!)- and perfect composition! Cool texture work (dark side!)! Wondering what texture you used. . .
