Silent Plea

This week, I've spent quite a lot of time peering at photos on my computer, some to share with a friend who came to lunch, some to crop, some to drop! For I Saw Sunday, this cropped one called out to me to share, rather than drop.
It could never be called a thing of beauty, but each time I've looked at it, I've been fascinated by the thick black snake of that coiled cycle lock, and the the pained expression on its 'face'. Doesn't it for all the world look as though it's crying out for help? A silent plea, but one which will not let me rest until I have acknowledged it by posting its dying words...
Sometimes people who need help can only ask for it silently, too...


  1. Great picture Jinksy! and I love the way your mind works. lol

    I too can see the little anguished face, I am glad you granted its wish. :-)

    Thanks for linking to I Saw Sunday. I hope all is well with you. x

  2. Jinksy I loved this. Been feeling the Ohio River Valley crud and got a good laugh from this. That is probably what my facial expression looks like.
    Feeling a little better today Sunday. Blessings

  3. You are so right, Jinksy 'Sometimes people who need help can only ask for it silently, too...'

  4. You're getting mighty creative with your photos. So glad you've long changed your mind about including them. ;)

  5. Great fun. For me, cars and even houses have faces - eg the old Citroen which used to squint, or big American cars with bared teeth in old films.

  6. I often see what others do not. Your photo and words tell me that we are similar spirits. Thanks Jinksy,


  7. The world is so much more interesting seen through eyes and minds like yours!

    Looking at this pictures, I recoil in horror at the thought of taking the lock off: black fingers, stains all over my clothes. I often risk getting my bicycle stolen by not locking it when I go grocery shopping, I don't want to get my fingers dirty. ;-)

  8. Fantastic photo Jinksy - glad I haven't got to draw that!

  9. this is actually a great photo, you couldn't possibly discard it.


Curiosity Cats can leave a whisker here...but not before noting, please, that I choose to have an award free, tag free, meme free blog. But by all means, talk to me by email - I love to 'chat'...
