Monochrome Monday


This was taken at the same time as the photo in my earlier post. It is the top of that same wall, showing the join between two lengths of the cage wire.

Monochrome Monday is hosted by Aileni, and you can find even more entries at the dedicated Monochrome Maniacs site.
Have a good week.

It really works well - makes a great arty image, the sort you see in Photo Galleries.

Great shot. Like the other one too on your odd shot post. they have these block cages here on the island and elsewhere. A quick way of building using rock and they are called gabions....

It is an arty shot. lever to use the smae subject in differing ways to create tow very different shots.

Professional.

That looks like a pretty stout cage. Makes you wonder what it took to pull it apart.

I've seen similar structures used as retaining walls on very steep grades or even vertical surfaces. I suppose it's less expensive to do it this way, though it's always looked half-finished to me.

Nice shot of the details here!

That's a lovely combination of pattern and irregularity.

I have seen a caged wall before but it's been built on a bend in a river so I assume there it's need to stop the wall being washed apart.

Perfect shot of an oddity, Dragonstar! Odd balls you might expect to be caged, but odd rocks, well....?

Hi Dragonstar,
Thank you so much for your wishes for my Blogaversary !
What I take out of this photo is the intricacy of that twisted wire.
You spotted some nice detail !

Have a nice day & see you soon ;)

This is an incredible shot! Great!

Siani said...

That's a nice, unusual shot. I mistook it for some kind of needlecraft when I first saw it.
