Shades of Prison

Update: this is not meant to be funny. I saw the shades of the cave and felt sorry for the cute animal. Immediately I thought these shades are the “Shades of Prison”.

    • … and I think and hope this photo says more than 1000 words. Thanks Julie, and I promise the next one will be less moving. But may be it will. But in a different direction. Reinhold

  1. Nicht schön im Sinne von “schönes, niedlich-harmloses Tiermotiv”. Aber a) handwerklich/fotografisch unheimlich reizvoll und vor allem b) äußerst gelungen als eindringliches Werk – verstärkt noch durch die s/w-Version!
    Diese Schatten “erschlagen” förmlich. Kein Entkommen. Und der kleine Kerl mittendrin.
    Man muss immer wieder hinsehen. Es hinterlässt nicht nachlassende Betroffenheit, Mitgefühl, dazu heftigen Unwillen gegen diesen desolaten Zustand und jegliche Einsperrung.
    Insofern ein ziemlich besonderes Foto von dir … Ich mag gerade die Aussage und die Wirkung, die es erzielt!

    • Danke Michèle! Zoo-/Tierbilder sind halt immer eine Gratwanderung. Aber bei Dir ist die Aussage von Bild und Text ja richtig angekommen. Das freut mich sehr! Liebe Grüsse. Reinhold

    • Thanks Sherry, I had the intention to be macabre. And you are absolutely right. It is macabre. I think it reflects the situation of animals in a zoo. I saw the shades of the cave and felt sorry for this cute animal. Immediately I thought these shades are the “Shades of Prison”. And I felt sorry to be part of the game. I think it was the last time for me to visit a zoo. And may be I shouldn’t have posted this image. And may be i delete the image in my homepage portfolio. It is always “walking on thin ice”. All the best and thanks for your comment and visit. Reinhold
