It was so sad… when my dog was running in the field this barbed wire got stuck in her fur… it was a hell of a job to get it out.. painful for her and me…
But on the other hand, it was rusty, has history… I just like, for some weird reason, to watch old barbed wire… to me it has beauty too…. silly me ;)

Bob is especially interested in ‘the soul’ of the things without one, the expressiveness of the lifeless, the essence of material….. macro photography, ‘things’ in particular.
‘Things’ don’t have the tendency to walk away, to fly, to move, to have a meaning, are always present and do not complex, have patience, don’t nag etc. etc….. As Bob wrote in his profile… “I like it simple!”…
