The Wall

"The Wall' - what do these two words bring to your mind. The Berlin Wall or The Great Wall? Pink Floyd? Back against the wall? I have a pal whose nickname was TheWall - nothing gets past him.

That is the purpose of a wall; it is a barrier which creates isolation. It keeps unwanted things out, and wanted things in. Maybe they help us hide?

This image is a wall that is part of an old temple. An elevated high platform where they held ancient ceremonies. I took several pictures of the area that shows it in context, I often feel like I have to capture the image of the whole buildings or structure. But that doesn't have to be the only thing you do. Get in close and capture some details.
