September theme day: Rust and ruins


Berlin is filled with decay, some of beautiful, some of it not. This pride of lions is faithfully guarding their shipping containers and palettes. I find the scene oddly funny, hope you enjoy it too!

It's the beginning of a new month and that means a new theme day. For more interpretations of Rust and Ruins, click here.

  8. A strange place for the lions but perhaps waiting for a day they come out again.

    1. Sie sind nicht weit von der Gefangnis. Vielleicht sind sie vorher Wachen geworden?

  22. It's a terrific theme day shot! If you'd asked them what they were doing, they would have told you they were guarding those old containers but they'd be lion!
