It's the mother's hand hanging on to the truculent toddler's. Or the truculent husband's. 'You're coming with me whether you like it or not...'
Oh and I'm now looking for a picture of Morris dancers with sheep. It may take a while to find though.

A good diagonal comp Mick. Yes, the thing is to not break under pressure and to hang tight.

It'll break eventually but we may not be here to witness the failure.
Love the powerful diagonal.

Your Sony NEX-5 has come up trumps here in your hands, Mick: and the wide aperture has isolated the subject so well.

Image perfectly fits the title, especially the interlocking point of the two hooks.

I like the blue tip.
Is that there to distinguish beween the male and the female hooks? Or is it a special bit of Cr Ma oxide on top of the iron oxyde, which marks it as a special late 1920s vintage... but then it wouldn't be UNF.. well a mystery.WinkWink
and yes I'll get you some French architecture that you'll like..GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin but not tomorrow, the others want a landscape
