November: Picture This Photo Contest Entry

My entry for this month's Picture This photo contest at Gardening Gone Wild. The theme is "The End of the Line," interpreted in any number of ways.

I took this picture at University of Illinois at Chicago today. The row of honey locust trees and shadows against the wall suggested prisoners grimly facing a firing line, and with a cold and windy winter coming, that isn't too far from the truth.

Great photo, and your explanation makes it even better. The choice of going black & white really emphasizes the lines.

That is a really great photo, and it really lends itself to black and white treatment too. Very creative.

Really nice photo - almost feels like the shadows are alive and reaching out toward the tree.
