the telephone lines run outta sight

They sing about cities and brag about steel / World’s seven wonders I cannot feel / The telephone lines run outta sight / Taken for granted when I’m passin‘ by (Malcolm Holcombe)

    i love this honey bunny :) i might get the new olympus pen when it comes out and set it on grainy black and white and leave it there :) i’m searching for my next camera, small and fast WITH shallow depth of field capabilities… what do you think darling?

    The sky, the open gate, the ornate pattern on the gate, the overgrowth. Love it all!

    Blades of grass sticking from the black earth and a pair of gates opening to nowhere, plenty of mystery

    Beautiful BW which really creates a special mood in this simple landscape. Well done!
    Have a nice day.

  15. Sensational! Love those clouds and their contrast. The detail in the grasses leading to the fence…all great stuff! Bravo!

    ich sehe, du hast auch etwas umstrukturiert. eine tolle seite. nach wie vor.

    und dieses bild hier ist wirklich ein großes zeugnis eines blicks. deines blicks. fantastischer kontrast.

    das tor zum himmel und doch nicht. das tor zum paradies vielleicht, offen gelassen, falls jemand wiederkehrt.

    mehr davon.

    liege hier; grashalm im mund. wünschte, wäre wolke.
    tore sind wichtig.

    viele grüße
