Barbed wire I have seen aplenty
over the hills and round the bend
where the posts sprouted like trees waiting on leaves, the barbs held up tufts of hair from a nameless cow.

I've also seen plenty of barbed wire in my day, in fact I bear a scar under my knee-cap where a barb grabbed me one day as I took a short-cut through the field. Love the photo

Heddie ho, little farm chick! great macro! I personally like the rust. This be used as a torture device couldn't it? :)

Rusty or not, it performs its duty!

I wish I had a dollar for each time I got stuck by a barb when stringing fence with my dad. Great picture -- rust and all.

I will admit that I have tore clothes on those little barbs....

That is the chicken said...

This is wonderful. It makes me think of Leonard Cohen's song...like a bird on a wire.

Love this. I've been hung up on barbed wire for years! Well, not actually, since I was young and stupid and tried to crawl over, under or through barbed wire fences...

Amanda Guthrie said...

This is very cool the texture is wonderful and there is a lot of great detail in your shot. Your focus is spot on!

Becky said...

Living in the country, I have come in contact with barbed wire plenty when I was younger. Such a great shot EG! I'm always amazed how trees can continue to grow around old wire.

Be careful! That stuff bites. :)

Back to answer your question. . . the last photo of mine showed a gazebo in the background. I stood in the middle of the rose garden so I could get it in the background. The roses all come from the city's Rose Garden we have in the downtown park. We have a Rose Society that plants and takes care of them. It is free to look at the roses.

They will be having a rose show this Saturday at a church near me and will be bringing roses from their own gardens to compete so I will get even more photos of roses. Ü

I am glad you enjoy seeing them.

I tore so many pairs of jeans hopping over barbed wire fences as a kid!

Barbed wired always gives me the heebie-geebies. I think I've got too vivid an imagination and I always remember this old B&W movie where a girl tried to escaped from a girls' school/camp/prison type thing and died cause she got stuck on the barbed wired. Shuddering at the thought even now.
