When I took this picture, it looked something like the above version on the camera screen, or at least that was the impression I had. However, the image on the computer screen proved really unsatisfying. Thus, I tweaked this image in ways I usually am not interested in doing, to see if I could get back what I thought I was going to find in my camera. Mostly I just cranked up the contrast, but I did fiddle a bit with the saturation too.
I know this stuff by the name of “snow fencing”. In Victoria, where snow is rare, it really is most often used as a giant form of flagging tape. It warns people and more importantly machine operators to stay out of sensitive areas. I find it a bit of an eyesore (which must be why it works) but usually temporary, so bearable as a form of mobile street furniture. In this case, it serves to protect a tree and it’s roots near to a major house renovation on Lorne Terrace, Harling Point.
I hope it has not made your eyes (too) sore.
