A rather poignant statement, Ray.
Ray: I don't much like barbed wire, Elizabeth, so am always on the lookout for signs that it has been "neutralised".
Brilliant composition Ray....petersmile
Ray: I am delighted that you like it, Peter.

Those new green tendrils showing life goes on, Ray
Ray: The vine has died back, being an annual, Lisl, and the tough tendrils are the last to give up their life-spark.

a fascinating detail study I very like - Lisl is right!
Ray: Barbed wire is an invention of Man for subduing stuff, Philine, so I am always delighted to find signs that it has been defeated.
Cabling is out on a limb here....
Ray: Sometimes the struggle must be carried to the oppressor, Richard...
The green shoots of recovery
Ray: ...or...the last signs of a Life, Bill!

Death on the wire indeed
Ray: But it has been a mighty struggle, Chris, and I feel the vine has made its point!

So it is not just people that end up hanging on the old barbed wire Ray. I like this a lot, well it appeals to my sensibility.
Ray: There have been a number of times that I have felt a sensibility in common with you, Chad, and I thank SC for providing the medium.
Bacterial fire, it is called, on the leaves, but subtle on photographer's part.
Ray: You are very kind, Juan Carlos.

The vine is an annual variety, and has exhausted itself in a noble struggle with that which seeks to oppress.

Its fascinating to see nature and something man-made interwining like this.
Ray: I imagine it as a death struggle between Nature and Man's foolishness, Alan.
A great tribute to this struggling vine Ray!
Ray: Thank you, Richard. I was impressed by the evidence of its struggle.
Interesting and thoughtful shot, Ray.
Ray: I appreciate your comment, Graeme.
