razor wire on a cloudy day


Razor wire crowns a barbed wire fence in Portland’s central Eastside industrial area near the eastern foot of the Ross Island Bridge. It poses a lethal-looking hazard for any person seeking to scale it’s forbidding heights. Surely, it must be in place to protect highly sensitive contents, yes? Or perhaps to protect the general populace from being exposed to dangerous contents from within? Maybe. More likely, the Dairy gold plant simply does not want outsiders to mess with or take its stuff. Yea, I will go with that. After all, it is a Dairy gold plant which the fence protects.

All the same, it made for an interesting photography subject. I enjoy the interplay between the razor wire, the clouds, and the brilliant blue sky. It combines two of my favorite photography subjects, clouds and industry.
