John Godley is an Automattician based in London, England. Never far from a camera, John enjoys capturing scenes around London and is sure to have a photo walk on his agenda when traveling. He loves a good sandwich.

This photograph captures a plant I discovered in a family’s garden on a recent trip to Morocco.

While in Morocco, we had the chance to go hot-air ballooning. After the trip, we ate a traditional Moroccan breakfast hosted by a local family. In the middle of this dry land, they had a garden filled with greenery. I was drawn to this striking fan and the way that the tiny “threads” seemed to float over the plant.

Share a photo of what “fray” means to you — it could be a tear in a favorite pair of jeans, a street rumble just about to begin, or a friend diving into an oncoming wave at the beach.

  1. I just posted some fray photos here the other day of some vikings that were fighting. Those photos would have been perfect for today!
    I’ll see if I can find another photo in my archives that can suit this challenge.


  2. My very short post on this interesting FRAY topic garnered the highest ever views my new blog ever had! I guess I’m here to commend an interesting topic and thank you for the views themselves!


  3. ii took this picture in front of a house in our neighborhood. as you can see, it’s becoming an eyesore with frayed and overgrown dry weeds around it. it wasn’t like this before. the property used to be well-maintained and taken care of.

    several months ago, a murder took place in the house. for some unexplained reason, the husband shot his wife in one of the bedrooms. their eldest daughter found her body hidden in a closet when she came home from school.


  4. Hi, nice to meet you, and to compliment you on an amazing photograph. It gives the plant a whole new perspective. I am not a trained photographer, but I love taking photographs anywhere and everywhere about anything. I am hoping to view your creativity and get some ideas. Best Regards Gill x


  5. Hi :) it’s nice that you list all the posts of the contributers; but today I see that each one has changed from a small square to a large full width oblong; I’m sad at this because now far less bloggers are shown on your page, and I have been unable to find where the other hundreds are :( please will you consider going back to the lots of squares format, thanks :)
