Daily Deviation

Given 2012-12-21
Christmas gallows-tree by ~If-You-Want is a wonderful capture of an urban setting. ( Featured by Kaz-D )
:iconharrysjones:
Very rarely do you see such a wonderful bringing together of the macabre and the beautiful! The wonderful juxtaposition of the warming sun and the cold harsh reality of death is simply exquisite. I especially like how the snow has settled just enough to slightly obscure just what is below the surface and the noose it's self is hidden behind the flare of the sun as if nature has reclaimed this device of death. Also the cold solid hardware of the gallows which means an end, a single fate that all humans must face is in contrast with the infinitely unique snow flakes that fall around it as a defiant symbol that life does in fact go on! Truly deserving of the DD and a beautiful image that I'm so glad a saw!

Превосходный набор фотографий. Освещение просто великолепное! К тому же, снег очень мило витает прямо перед объективом, и цвета... Просто прекрасно. :)

отличное фото! сначала подумала, что это испания, из-за архитектуры, наверное. где это место? и что за фильм это был, если не секрет?

Спасибо.
Это была съемочная площадка мосфильма неподалёку от Сходни.
Не знаю, цело там ещё хоть что-то или нет.
Понятия не имею, что за фильм снимали, но место выстроили прекрасно. Даже корабль у них там стоял.

I love such kind of defiance ... little bit bitter tar of sober look at mankind how it really is put to huge Christmas barrel of maudlin , sugary mendacity with sclerotic silly Santa Claus on sledge with reindeer in the backgrond of the cheap postcard from wal mart, tesco or kaufland :-D
