ABC Wednesday--"K" is for "knot"

Tie the knot is what my daughter and my new son-in-law did on September 19th. The day after, some visiting guests and I took a leisurely boat ride up the Sava River to the village of Jakovo, where I photographed these knots at the Fenek Monastery. The monastery dates from the second half of the 15th century, and the water there is said to have miraculous qualities. I splashed my face....

You should join ABC WEDNESDAY.

Any miracles yet?

I wanted to say more, but my tongue got all twisted in a knot!

That's a very dramatic photo. It has a lot of tension and stress, the restorative effects of the local water notwithstanding.

These are particularly knotty knots. Congratulations to your daughter and new son-in-law.

Love your choice for K! "Knots" loom rather large in my family, as my dad was a true sailor manqué, who was an expert at all sorts of sailor's knots. This is a great photo, and I love the colors too.

We went to a wedding the same day and watched a beautiful young couple tie their knot and seal it with a kiss! :D

My daughter learned to tie her shoes last week, using a knot I'd never seen before.

Oh, your knot pic is nice.
