This seems to a very different style of photo for you Craig. For me it has a strong civil rights message, and particularly as it is timed consequent to the recent Martin Luther King Jr Memorial.

Compositionally, I like how the power lines draw out the lines of perspective. And of course, B&W.

@Helen: Thank you. Yes, I wanted to capture the feeling of racial minorities being caged in by society and the urban jungle - yet at the same time - attempting to rise above it. Thanks again.

A strong B&W!

I agree with the civil rights message with the urban jungle of fences and wires.
