Week of Randomness: Fenceline

For reasons that were inexplicable and non-negotiable I decided that a driving trip from Lubbock to Denver would not include a single mile driven on a Interstate highway.

It takes me practically forever to get anywhere anyway (because: photography). Add that to the driving conditions (not all the roads were paved, for example), and I think our travel speed was somewhere in the covered-wagon range.

But I saw this.

It was a barbed-wire life

Every single thing in this scene points to a life that’s been lived on a hard and unforgiving edge.

You know, nothing really says, “We’re not even trying.” more than a city’s downtown where you don’t even have to look very hard to find barbed wire.

Although, to be fair, it does make my job more interesting.
