I associate barbed wire with pain. Not just the pain of being cut by it, but also the pain of those who are enclosed by it. Obviously there are other uses- such as protecting your propert.
The wire on the drainpipe has a circular pattern which reminded me of the crown of thorns. One made from manufactured materials, one from organic origin. Both associated with pain.
I've used a layer from the Easter image that I uploaded this year, which included a distorted crown, and combined it with the barbed wire. From one crown came life- from the manmade we can still hope.

Four versions and I wonder which works best?
This is the last in this series of images using barbed wire - not exactly a popular series for obvious reasons, but thanks for looking and for comments on the previous barbed wire uploads

Fabulous work Helen - wonderful iridescence in the blue tones. Love them all but marginally V2 as I like the way the image leaps out of its frame at the top, just like an electrical impulse. The concept behind the work is brilliant and very personal.

This may be a strange comment Linda, but that is exactly how I would draw the symptoms of an Aura Migraine on paper, No 1 a classic example, great shots but scary to me

Thanks everyone- I completed v2 and then wondered if the "echoes" were too much outside the blue box- interesting Nicky that you can see a strong visual link with your own migranes - a hard image in many ways

A highly original concept brilliantly created. I think No.2 works best by demonstrating that pain has no boundaries.
