Photo Of The Week: BELITA
Hi Belita!! Three excellent photos for this week's theme. The area in the first shot looks old and not well-kept. Looks like some urban regeneration may be needed. Such a shame to keep geese behind such of big fence, but perhaps they are aggressive and the fence stops them attacking people. I love the colour and illumination in the third shot.
It's old but not that old. Actually that area was formerly occupied by warehouses for the ship-repairing industry that in the meantime is totally stagnated, the reason why there is a row of abandoned structures. I don't think that is such a shame because those geese were in a unusually large area with a nice lake and the fence exists just to prevent them from going outside it.
Those degrated areas have a charm and atmosphere of their own. Love the geese. It would not bother me to have them behind a gate, they can be a little unfriendly. The third photo has some wonderful colour contrasts.
Wonderful shot - "Did you loose your contact here, you say?"To keep them in and visitors out.Lovely golden colour on the top.
You're welcome, Belita.
Three beautiful captures as always my friend;)
Thank you, Baz!
I see charm in the old walls in the first photo. The subjects on the stairs and the cats in the foreground make it a good photo. I have to agree with some of the other comments about the geese. The fence is there for a reason. The market gate is illuminated beautifully.
I agree with you, Robert! Though it's a pain to see neglected buildings, they have what I think we may call the charm of the degradation. The fence is not as an ornament but as a means to keep the geese under control within their large-sized environment. That city in the city has its monuments quite well illuminated, a reality that's is not the usual one in small towns in this country.
I like the variety of fences you have chosen.The textures and warmth of the first shot is very appealing to me. The geese look happy and they have a very appropriate fence :) Very impressive gate in the last shot!
Many thanks, Danette, for your comments!
If the area wasn't charming enough in that first photo, the cats make it even more so! I love this. But then, I love all of your photos. Love the shot of the geese and the pretty, colorful gate.
