    Despite that something dangerous--and possibly tragic--is occurring, it's strikingly beautiful. The hose and wires and texture of the house are great elements.

    Alwyn Scott Turner said (6 Jan 2012):

    The apparent simplicity of this documentary photograph reveals upon closer consideration how the elements of perspective and composition - when used without any artificial devices or effects - but just a straight-forward image with all the conscious elements of construction arranged from an historical point of view...produces a clear view of reality, in which the viewer can consciously enter inside the frame of the picture and sense the depth of field in the third dimension. Without artifacts the eye accepts the illusion of depth and the sensibilities of the atmosphere.
    There is a difference between an image intended for photojournalism as contrasted with a documentary image...this honest documentary image was not created or edited for publication or advertising - and thus it has an integrity associated with it that separates it from commercial or propaganda corruption.
    In fact, since the vast publishing empire in America is now under the embedded control of the 1% minority that has usurped the communication media - it is not easy for anyone in the 99% Majority to find an independent 'journal' that does not subvert photographs into the propaganda pollution by a nepotistic editorial conspiracy.
    A good documentary image requires an integrity of purpose - to be honest about the historical view of America and The American People at the moment in history.
    Nice timeless shot...Carol....and thank you for the Contact.

    Carol, I just wrote you a message thanking you for your kind response - but unfortunately the message was denied access of transmission and my connection to JPG was terminated. However, I will persist to send this message until you receive it. Whenever I mention the truth about freedom of speech and the right to privacy...the message is deleted and I am disconnected from from the site - this secret method of censorship is used to repress dissent on the Internet against any citizen that speaks out the truth - that reveals America is being destroyed by an enemy within that has subverted and occupied the nation by deceit and treachery - in a war against The American People. The Denial Of Access (DOA) Conspiracy is a secret operation that uses spyware and malware built into our computers and programs - to invade the privacy of our lives and control information - spying on and suppressing truth and dissent - especially against those individuals that speak out the natural desire for peace, justice and free enterprise. Without the right of privacy there is no freedom of speech, and without truth...there is no democracy - and by subverting the freedom of the press by an embedded media - the American people are deprived of contact with the soul of their own nation. America is occupied by an hidden enemy within that prevail only through conspiracy, lies and deceit. This is what I said in the first message to you which was deliberately trashed - and the public enemy has become so arrogant in their conquest of authority...that they no longer attempt to mask the fact that they are spying and censoring communication to prevent the truth from being transmitted the between citizens. Documentary photography deals with truth and realism, which is anathema to those engaged in the DOA Conspiracy - we are all under attack by a parasitic regime that operates from deep in the darkness, and who are ruthless in their efforts to turn out the beacons of truth that light the way of liberty for all mankind... I will post this message to you as a prop to your documentary image.... an image that speaks with clear realism. AL
