Barbed Wire


Trivia about me: When I was in high school many, many, many years ago, I wrote a high school column called The Baling Wire for the local newspaper.  The high school mascot was/is a Haybaler. Baler for short. Not the machine, but the young farmer.   

It's the Weekend in Black and White, hosted by Dragonstar.  Click here to see B&W photos by other participants from around the world.

    1. When I was a kid, I was good at scrambling through barbed wire fences. Well, most of the time.

  5. This is a great shot and evokes an uneasiness for me. I never experienced having to live in a Communist country but my mom did after the war and she cut these types of wires to escape into the west. It feels sad and as if freedom is taken away

    1. I like to think that your mom said, I'm free, and cut the wire.

  6. You really captured the details and texture in this wire.
