Arrow Photo Challenge #69 ~ A Delicate Subject {1-31-10}

Hello again! Time for a new photo challenge and this week's challenge idea comes from my hubby actually! We got a few inches of snow over the weekend and we were out and about today in it today so I could play around with my camera. He kept pointing out little pieces of delicate looking ice for me. That got me thinking - we haven't tackled the delicate subject matter. By delicate I'm referring to things that are finely detailed, fragile, fine in texture/quality or in their general construction. Get out there now & have fun but be careful not to break anything!

Photo Challenge Rules:
~ Have FUN with this! There are no right or wrong photos.
~ Take as many pics as you want, share the few you like best.
~ Please share only current photos, taken after the challenge was issued.
~ We CANNOT upload our photos to the SCS galleries. You may upload them as an attachment or host them from your blog or any online photo hosting site. Just provide the direct link to the photo in your post and also make sure that it is not from a password protected album.
~ Just a reminder that we are a family-friendly site if you are sending others off this site to view photos in an album hosted elsewhere.
~ Please jump in and join us in the photo challenges at anytime!
~ Again - HAVE FUN!


Here's a very delicate ice crystals.

Wow! Angie, that photo is stunning! I love the detail on the delicate frost! I'm not sure I can get such a good detail with my point and shoot camera, but I'll give it a try!

Too late for me to use snowy photos for this - ours is long gone - but aren't they fun!
I think I have an idea for this one that doesn't involve snow.

I'm not usually so quick off the mark, but it's my only day off this week, so I took advantage of a bright morning.
The embroidery is a detail from the border of a sleeve on an old silk robe. I don't know if it's Japanese or Chinese, although I think Chinese. It's very old, and falling apart. To give you an idea of size, the part I took the photo of is just 3" wide, by about 5" high. I think it qualifies as detailed, fragile and fine!!
(You can see some of the plainer embroidery on the robe featured on this card - I Flew Cathay Pacific)
The other picture is one of our little robins, the tamer one. I think his feathers count as finely detailed . I like this picture I snapped this morning as he peeked out from behind a tub to see if it was safe to come for his next worm.

Great challenge! Angie, your ice crystals are stunning, amazing detail!

Sabrina, the fabric is so soft looking, I also love the detail in it. Your robin is so sweet, he looks very soft too!

Love that robin....have had two around the feeder this weekend and they must have wintered over as we usually don't see robins again until March.

Hey Pansy,
We have a place that we go on winter hikes here, in South Western Ontario and there are tons of robins there all winter long. The robin is no longer a first sign of spring.

Neat icicle, sort of looks like a skinny/skeletal hand!

There are so many delicate things in Dale Chihuly's Glass gallery.

Here are a few of my favorite pieces. More on my BLOG today.

I KNOW! Isn't it amazing? And that second piece is probably 15 feet tall and 5 feet in diameter at the bottom.

Oh wow!! I still remember an amazing glass sculpture exhibition in the Botanic Gardens here way back, but these are just stunning. I love that first one.
