"None shall be weary nor stumble... nor the latchet of their shoes be broken: Isaiah 5: 27"

(Shoe-latchet definition according to The Century Dictionary "is A thong, strap, or lace for holding a shoe on the foot.")

What speaks to me in photography
Are images we don't expect to see
E'en tho' some words are left unspoken
For why a shoe lace had not broken....
As it hung suspended on the tree!!!
How it got there remains a mystery.

I discovered this tiny shoe lace frozen and hung over a notch on the bark of the crab apple tree today when I went out to see what I could find to photograph in the back yard. I did a macro shot of it which brought out the woven detail of the shoe lace but it was almost inconspicuous when blending in with the tree. However it trains the eye to look for what might otherwise go unnoticed unless we stumble on it by accident.
