Who is kept out? The people on the inside or those on the outside? Sometimes I believe that the prison guards are prisoners too.

In this case most probably they are keeping people out. The reason, I can see for this, is even quite understandable: The wall is quite low and there is this strange electrical power pole on the other side. So it's probably a security measure, but the razor wire makes it look quite unfriendly.

Thank you very much.
The bits of plastic film hanging from the barbed wire reminded me of pieces of clothes hanging from the barbed wire at the border of Ceuta and Melilla. Some time before I took this image a big group of people tried to get into Spain, by climbing over the fence in Ceuta or Melilla (I forgot where exactly). Pictures of pieces of cloth sticking on the barbed wire of the border fence, that were probably ripped from these people's clothes, were shown in German newspapers.
