Ominous times

Haunting scenes in

so many places, so many faces

Life seems cheap,  feeling sorry is not sufficient



Ominous times in so many lands

  1. This is such a symbol of one of the most devastating moments in history. And you captured the evilness and hopelessness of what happened in this very strong photo. And still there is a streak of hope even there. I don’t know if you see the shape of hearts form by the barbed wire?

  2. No, feeling sorry is not sufficient. But I think Stephen Hawking is right, we as a species have violence inbuilt. Amongst all the other reasons to worry, Kenya (where I was, long ago) now gets to me – just when I’d thought that their general election had taken place without large scale violence, that election has now been annulled and must now be repeated. The roulette wheel spins yet again.

  3. This picture can only be in black and white. So is life……but if we do not never loose hope and keep faith in goodness maybe there are stars and sunshine. Symbolic picture and well found Paula. X

  4. I cannot think of a more representative symbol to photograph. Even if it wasn’t 1940s iconic, the smokestack spells destruction, waste or phallus. All feel of oppression to someone and something in context.

    • Thank you, Barry, I was very hesitant of using this shot but I could not find a more ‘upbeat’ , but still suitable one as it is difficult to find anything positive to say about what is going on seemingly everywhere , just now.


      • I agree with you and now, the US president wants to expel 800,000 young people for the simple error of being born to parents who brought them here. This man is heartless, xenophobic and racist.

        How could we?

Views through a lens - a personal viewpoint



Poet Rummager

I sell collectibles and art online and often find the things I've found have hilarious and at times, dark stories to tell. It's thrilling for me to be creatively random, so always expect the unexpected in the things I share with you.
