Lovely mono May
Great May! Beautiful in its simplicity... Greetings, Dick
Giulio, merci beaucoup pour ta visite et tes mots qui m'encourage de faire de plus en bw. Il y a vraiment des fotos, qui gagne en bw!
Palmina and Dick, thank you both very much for your encouraging comment!
Special and nice view, May !I like this photo very much!Best regards, Tamás
Thank you very much Tamás, for taking your time to look into my gallery! I look forward seeing your new photos. My best greetings, May :)
May, this one is a masterpeice. It says so much about fences, and their symbolic rather than physical strengths. There's nothing about this fragile structure that creates a true barrier, at least not from the perspective of the viewer.
As Hank said just above: A Masterpiece
Beautiful theme-photo - Political - Good or bad guys - Population divided in 50/50 - For or against Kyoto etc.
Hank and Mogens, thank you both so much for your philosophical thoughts and understanding! Me too, I find fences very symbolic. All, who build fences, so that noone may intrude, enclose themselves behind the wires, this is true in the material as well as in the symbolic sense. Friedrich Duerrenmatt, the great author talked in one of his last speeches about this theme.
The fence above is just temporary and can easily be removed. Worse are the fences, that people produce in their heads. Fences against everything, which they aren't familiar with. That's one of the reasons, why I love this platform here. We find things that unite rather than separate in a worldwide sense, no matter what country anyone comes from.
It's great, that we can communicate like that and get to know other places and people. Thank you both very much!
My dearest greetings, May
I love this shot and it is truth fences can be symbolic but the high light and the shadow contract it what got me. Beautiful! :)
Hallo May, dieses ist eines der besten S/W-Bilder seit langem. Ein Bild nur aus zwei Grautönen. Und die Linie das Zaunes ist der Hammer. YS. Du machst super S/W Fotos. Klasse Kontrast.
Wallace, thank you very much for your visit! Great, that you like it! :) May
Carsten, ein solches Kompliment vom S/W-Maestro weiss ich sehr zu schätzen. Ich danke dir herzlich für dein Lob und den Y*! Gruss, May
Nice work May!!
Great contrast and use of BW on a very symbolic subject. Enjoy looking at your recent work in BW.
Larry, Danke vielmal! I am very happy to get compliments from you! There was a time, when I was very fond of BW photos. I then developed the films, copied and enlarged them myself, but that's a long time ago. I just rediscover the beauty of BW photos. Greetings, May :)
Really good shot May a perfect contrast and composition ,great work. YS
Artur, thank you so much for appreciating this photo! :)
Good morning May. I found this as I was so intrigued by the tag fence. I think it's a great shot, and I love the black and white. I have just read through your comment to Hank and Mogens. It gives me a geat insight into your philosophies. Thankyou May. And the title ? Well I think it depends on which side of the fence one's on! Some are luckier than others.
Thanks a lot for your lovely comment, Amelia! Yes, and sometimes those who try to fence out others, fence themselves in.
A very perceptive comment May, but I can see from all your comments that you be a bit of a philosopher? There are beginning to be quite a few gated communities being built in the UK at least. It seems a sad thing.
Thank you very much, Amelia! Photos often give an impulse to reflect upon things. - I guess, gated communities are growing everywhere. But probably there have always been these tendencies.
