Back again to the Sigma 70/2.8 Macro and another typical macro shot 🙂

I was late for shooting and again drove to a place near Sternberg. This torn and battered fence, leading alongside a way from the local graveyard, through a pasture and up to a forest, was where I decided to stop and try to catch some last sun. Do you recognize it? The configuration has this distinct Iowa Jima aesthetics 🙂

The Song of the Day is “Torn” from Natalie Imbruglia’s 1998 debut album “Left of the Middle“. See the video on YouTube.

  1. I have to admit, that I’m a bit lost. Care to explain “Iowa Jima” aesthetics? I only seem to remember vaguely a picture of a flag raising – some WWII battle (?)

  2. Have a look at this one: monument.jpg. All leaning left to right to raise the one leaning right to left 🙂

  3. Iowa Mima is a really good one – you should see me grinning. Besides the Freudian/tongue in cheek/pun the image is really good: Never saw an old fence in such glowing colors.

  4. You made me so much juckle that I added another mistake— it should read Iowa Jima, of course
