This is the fence on the backside of a storage area of some small workshop. What struck me was the contrast between the tender filligree of the flowers and the almost brutal reality behind the fence. I feel some deeper truth about the soul here, and besides, it’s our own choice, which side we’re on.

I suppose you know those places. Places you pass by so often, frequently thinking you should stop the car and take a photo, but you always drive on, because there’s no place to stop.

This was made in such a place, a shed on a patch of land between a highway exit, the highway, the big street that the highway exits into, and … the small street that I took today and where I finally was able to stop and park the car. It’s a strange place, a remnant of the past between all those new traffic lanes. An anachronism, almost as unreachable as the past of our memories. Almost.

The Song of the Day is “Somewhere In Between” from Kate Bush’s 2005 album “Aerial”. Hear it on YouTube.
