Chain Link

I’ve been scratching my sagittal crest all night trying to come up with a missing ‘link’ joke for you. No dice. I guess you’ll just have to come up with one of your own. Which might be considered fun… in certain circles.

note: Sagittal Crest is the one of the few terms I remember from an Anthropology class I took back at the dawn of time. Well, that and Australopithecus Afarensis. Because it really rolls of the tongue.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

    • I am a bit of a sucker for B/W…
      it does feel a bit eerie, doesn’t it?! It didn’t so much at the time, because there was a lot of ‘normal’ activity going on around here.
      Thank you so much, Ms. A!

  1. Yes I agree with Debbie Adams, there is something eerie about this image; there is a stillness to it which gives it a very atmospheric quality and a strange beauty. Cool!

    • It was one of those things that got amplified in the photo…
      there was a lot of every-day stuff in the area, but remove all that ‘stuff’, and this does start to feel quite strange. I tried to pump that up a bit with the processing, too. Thank you so much, Badpanda!

  2. Well done. I, myself, have a preference for barbed-wire crowned fencing. If I could only figure out a way to make that mesh with my white picket fence… any suggestions?

    • Hahaha! Now that would make for an interesting HGTV design challenge!
      ‘While we’ve incorporated concertina wire into our over all design scheme, we made sure to balance things out with a warm paint scheme. And several bowls of fake fruit.’

  3. The angles and lines are quite interesting, and the barbed wire gives it some menace. (I had to check out the sagittal link to know what it was!)

    • I’m surprised I remembered anything from that class…
      as soon as it would start my eyelids would get very heavy and time would seem to sloooow down!
      Thank you so much for stopping by, WFFME… I hope the rest of your weekend goes well, too!

  4. I don’t have a “missing link” joke for you, but I do remember the game show the “weakest link.” HA! πŸ™‚

    I think this photo is one of my favorites. It’s got a very mysterious air with the shadows and the barbed wire. Well done!

  5. The only missing links around my house are sausage links…. I eat everything on site while I scratch MY Saggital crest.

    As always I love the shot…. it’s kind of West Side Story-ish πŸ˜‰

  6. a cool image with a link to your past studies.
    btw, am glad you took anthropology, those are very impressive-sounding words, and they give me an opportunity to use one of my favourite expressions: “what does that even mean?” πŸ˜€
    seriously, thanks for stopping by my “sunset” corner. much appreciated!

    • Thanks so much, P&K!
      Hahaha… yeah… I probably should have also mentioned that just because I remember two words from that class, it sure doesn’t mean I have the first clue into understanding the first thing about them!
      And you are welcome! A wonderful image (no surprise there) you have posted for that challenge! πŸ™‚

  7. You really excel at these types of images. Something that at first glance is so very simplified, yet so full of texture, intrigue and mystery at second glance. Very, very well done Inky!

  8. As always, it took me a good three looks at this to figure out what was going on, but when I did . . . neat! I love pictures that only happen at a specific time of day. What a creepy place you must have been in, with the windows all chained up, too.

    • The lighting / shadows were about perfect, U.M…
      usually that doesn’t happen (I always tend to be in the wrong place at the wrong time), but I think it worked out, here!
      This is a lift station, and really it’s not in a very creepy place, although I did my best to make things look as shady as possible!

    • It does look that way, doesn’t it?!
      Fortunately it’s not dangerous at all… I just cropped out a lot of the ‘normal / everyday’ stuff… so it looks like a much more intimidating place in the photograph.
      Thank you very much, sir!
