Barbed Wire Photography



Here are two interesting photos I took along my walk to Market Street from 3rd street and along the Embarcadero in San Francisco. Both images caught my eye because of the barbed wire. The first image is of a vacant lot. There used to be a building there, who knows what happened to it, but the building that still exists next to the lot has a door that leads to nowhere (very Winchester Mystery House in my opinion) and I’ve always been fascinated with where the door used to lead. Now, it leads to a rugged dirt and concrete pit. The Barbed wire accentuated the oddity. The second image is of the Ferry Building near Sinbad’s bar. What I love about this image is the juxtaposition of a great and beautiful clock tower that survived the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake and fire, but is masked by the ethereal barbed wire.


In contemplation,
