FMTSO: Twisted. Contorted. Curly. Spirally.....

Yay, it's Friday.  Today's theme for The Friday My Town Shoot Out is Twisted. Curly. Contorted. Wound Spirally.  I'm not sure who chose this theme but it is pretty cool.
I just wish my pictures went with what I had in my head for posting.
I didn't get out this week to take photos so these come from the archives.

Before I begin I want to say then when I hear the word, Contorted, it makes me think of those people from cirque du solei.  Those people really freak me out.  Yes, it's cool that they can contort their bodies in such a way, and be so flexible but it still freaks me out.  I don't know why.  I'm just saying.

Gnarly twisted trees and coiled cords around the pole.
Okay, it wasn't taken it my town but I did take this photo while on vacation in Santa Fe, NM.

Twisted, braided iron make up the legs on these chairs.

A spiral staircase

A braided, twisted, bent, knotted rope in my town.

That's about all I've got for now.

I bet anything I'll find all sorts of pictures like this when I'm not looking.

  1. Wonderful depictions. That first one looks surreal.. Dali-esque, even.

  2. I always love what you have in store for us! Great job and have a great weekend!

  3. Love these. Those tree trunks: what kind of trees??

  4. I'm always fascinated by spiral staircase, we got a few here just outside of some old buildings, it used to be a common feature long time ago. I just love photographing them.

  5. wow! these are all so good JarieLyn. I love the effect on the first one, but the second one catches my eye the most. awesome staircase!

  6. Contortionists! Aren't they SO weird to watch? If I ever get to LV I want to go to Cirque du Soleil. Anyway. Wow, you have a whole bunch of great pictures here; I am glad somebody had a good shot of a spiral staircase for this week. Was that in a church?

  7. Love the staircase, JarieLyn. Like Kerry, I think it looks to be in a church, I can imagine the choir boys pushing and shoving as they ascend those tight spirals. Also like the first shot, it's quite surreal.

  8. Like the tree on the pole shot!

  9. I thought this was a fun theme. You did a great job. I have a staircase too.

  10. Love the staircase and I thought the first shot was a mural!
