Isolating fences separate UK back gardens. I wanted to capture that sense of being isolated in amongst all the people; of being shut off and shut out, everyone on their own little island - what you can't see, you can pretend doesn't exist.

An overcast day enhanced the bleakness; harsh cuts between the three separate areas were to echo isolation. The fence in soft focus, a bland area encourages the attention to what lies beyond, breaking the taboo.

Perfect, what else is there to say.

Thanks George. I've enjoyed a quick browse through your collection and will return another day for a better look!

I really love your suttle details. This picture is great!

Hi Rafael - Thanks :) - this is one of my 'starker' ones - and yes, subtlety is in my nature ;)

Thanks again Evangelos. Sometimes simple is better. Did you see One, Two, Three, Snow! yet?
