Barbed wire

For so long now I’ve been wanting to take a picture like this, but I haven’t really had a chance yet. Mainly due to the lack of barbed wire in the suburbs. Electric fences, yes… Razor wire, sometimes… but not a lot of barbed wire around. So on the weekend I got the opportunity just outside town. The barb is lined up about two centimeters from the lens and the camera is set on super macro. Cars going past must have thought me lacking a couple of barbs on my wire, but I was hiding behind my camera so that makes it ok.

    Great perspective! I've been known to take macro photos of flowers, but to do the same for barbed wire is a new idea for me.

    Very interesting photo. What is the barbed wire keeping in … or out? Interesting.
