Get My Point?

Thursday January 15th, 2009 "Communication"

Seems to me that bullets are often the preferred method of communicating
in this crazy messed up world we live in.

For those interested, these are .30-378 bullets for a long range rifle.

Note: I've desaturated this a bit since I found the original too ... well ... realistic.
Wierd eh?

A sad reflection on today's world...I'm no good with these
either. Superb shot Inga.

Very powerful and very clear!

Powerful image - the desaturation works well.
Jeff Lobaugh16-Jan-2009 00:31
Remind me never to make you angry. Well composed image!!
Wolfgang Bluhm15-Jan-2009 23:45
Very well done. I must say I prefer other kinds of communication!
Ed Goodnight15-Jan-2009 23:42
Got the point and the picture!
impressive
Cindi Smith15-Jan-2009 22:33
Unfortunately, sometimes this is the only way and I hate that but in the world we live in, this is what is used by criminals and in war. Great shot but I'll just use mine for target practice.

I agree with Phillip: definitely a chilling image.
Phillip Normanton15-Jan-2009 20:50
I think the desaturation makes them more... chilling? Sort of cold and lethal?
beverley harrison15-Jan-2009 20:07

Good for a pretty distant/surprise communication.

Excellent detail - I like the desaturation.
Flo Hendry15-Jan-2009 07:57
Very moving image...so sad that many feel this is the only way to communicate. Excellent entry. v
Maaike Huizer15-Jan-2009 07:30
No doubt the worst way to communicate and far to often used. Let's hope one day soon people get to their senses!!!
Excellent image.
Sabine Stetson15-Jan-2009 06:56
this image hit me right into my heart.....
the pretty bullets presenting the old fashioned way of killing....
at this very moment thousands of innocent
people are massacred by weapons that make this look like
children toys.....

yes, indeed it is a mad,crazy, insane world we are living in...and
people lived in for thousands of years...killing,killing, war, hate...no
way to stop the outside....can only surrender to myself..

Having lived in a country where I and other family members have seen this point all too clearly, I can truthfully say I do not wish to communicate this way.
BleuEvanescence15-Jan-2009 03:02
