Behind Bars


I stumbled across this little, locked hole-in-the-wall in Dinkelsbühl, Germany. However, I found no key to let him out.

This is my contribution to:  «The Weekend in B & W»
Have a nice Week-End!

Funny (weird)!

Valerie said...

Locked for protection against vandals? He looks sad to be behind bars..perfectly shot.

ah the poor prisoner

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Individually, the statue and gate are beautiful. Combined is even better!

We have a lot of those small statues around here,and in Italy too, but they usually are Virgin Mary, not Jesus. This statue is unusual, not the fact that it's in a cage.And they're often high on walls.
Sad times when one's obliged to lock such things...
Have a nice week-end !

In German it's very frequent to find Jesus.I like this one. Wish you a nice weekend.

Liker komposisjonen din!
Funker flott i breddeformat selv om hovedmotivet har høydeformat i seg!

Perfekt å konvertere til B&W med dette bildet, strålende resultat!

Tone Annette said...

Flott i B&W!

He does not look happy about being behind bars. You could have slipped him a file at least.

Jarek said...

Perfectly shot. Great composed.

Very interesting placement of that artwork. Lovely shot of it-brings out the curves and details in that sculpture very well.

I like the hole in the wall. Great capture.

Petra said...

Poor guy, he looks so sad, which is intensified by the b&w format. Great choice.

I think others had tried to let him out as there is a modern day lock keeping him in now.
The iron work is beautiful and overall a nice black and white -- barbara

What a beautiful and special photo! Good job!

Kenneth Nilsen said...

Komposisjonen sitter som et skudd! syns BW passer meget bra :)

Gemma Wiseman said...

A sign of the times - that all sacred things need to be guarded. At least the "cage door" is a lovely design, with enough spaces to appreciate the figure. Lovely photo.

Får nesten litt vondt av han karen her, stakkarn!
Flott sett og komponert, og perfekt i S/H!
God helg til deg, Rune:)

Erin Erkun said...

What heartless person would lock a poor little chap in there! Very curious.

Robert Nicolaescu said...

Hehe, du får jammen med deg mye rart, du! Kjempekult og godt fanget, Rune!

I love the design of the gate - like a butterfly. The figure behind is rather strange!

So he is still in there…waiting. What a strange little sculpture.

Banjo52 said...

Kind of weird, kind of spooky. Good subject for black and white.

Prairie Jill said...

Great shot! I love the composition - so nicely framed by the dark bands at the top and bottom.

NatureFootstep said...

cool! Pretty well locked in I guess. Thanks for the info concerning Picasa. Seemed that more people then me was grateful for it. :)

Serline said...

Nice and neat shot!

A fun little detail that is perfect for black and white. Nicely composed and captured.
