Barbed Wire Kisses

bw-barbed-wire

Given the title of this blog, one might think that I am about to talk about the seminal 80s album Barbed Wire Kisses by the Jesus and Mary Chain. While I do love that album, this post has nothing to do with it. Sorry Reid brothers.

The post literally features barbed wire, specifically the photos that I seem to take of barbed wire fencing (and its younger brother the electric fence) while out riding and hiking. Admittedly the title of the post is taken from the album, because I have a hard time seeing barbed wire without thinking of it.

I don’t really set out to take photos of fences, but as mundane and common as they are in rural Michigan, for some reason I am drawn to the patterns and the beautiful, shabby, rural grunginess of them.

With that, here are some of the shots I’ve taken over the last year. All photos were taken with the Fuji X-T10, except for the last two which were taken with a Nikon D3200.

Thanks for looking.
