Bouquet of Barbed Wire

By chase
Something different.
The barbed wire is real, I collected it this morning from a bunch in my shed.
The lantern has stood outside for many years, I had to take it apart to get the solar workings (stopped working years ago ) out and replace them with a tea-light, then all I had to do was put it all back together and put the old glass back in.

Taken in very diffused daylight and the light from the candle.
Raw file converted in Lightroom and faffed with in Photoshop Wink

Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.
Please stay safe everyone, else I will have to send the lads round Wink

Inspired work and choice of title. Glad you got the old lantern working as it adds so much to the atmosphere.
I raise my hat to you Janet and happily place my award

Like it.....beautifully balanced by the petal top left....and love the illuminated lamp. Vaguely remember an old TV series of that name Smile

The contrast between the delicate fragility of the leaves and the harsh, robust and sharp barbed wire is inspired, Janet.
I likes this one a lot, I does...and no need to send the boys round, I have been very good recently and have stayed safe.Wink

That's good to hear Malc, you were quite near the top of the naughty list Wink Wink

There may be a couple more from this session, I'm not wasting messing about with that very sharp barbed wire with my heavy duty gardening gloves on !
