  1. The post was perfect but I was expecting a few more pics – maybe because mine was soooo long and a few others had about ten –
    So when it came to the cute stock one – I felt cut off.
    But I regrouped and leave well!

    Oh and the wire holding the fence up – the angle and details give us this brut force vibe – strong like bull kinda feel – really cool

    1. I got too lost in looking for the fence photos. Plus I wanted to get others done that were a distraction. I don’t seem to have many fence photos. I should have included the Scottish one but I posted that a few weeks ago.
      Fencing wire has many uses. I like using wire on fences as it is easy to do and doesn’t usually require tools.

      1. That makes sense about the wires not needing tools and also being so sturdy –
        And I liked that heavy purple in the second photo – work of art/ and actually your post has more than enough to feast on for the lens artist challenge – and you know – I was surprised as to how many pictures I had with fences from this summer – was expecting one or two and found 14 and only used 11 (only – cough)
        Have a great day and it was nice connecting today

      2. Thank you Yvette πŸ™‚ I liked the late afternoon feel of the photo too. Only 11. the other 3 must have been in the not so good pile πŸ™‚ Yes a lovely way to spend my afternoon x

      3. The other three were decent – but were not needed as the flow of the post had reached a nice end – whew – and I say that with a sweet sigh because I had taken off a week from
        Logging and was not sure if I would take off another week – but the fence theme came out and leya’s post was a spark! A needed one and so when I made my post I realized how I hardly ever pay attention to fences – benches – yeah – doors – of course – birds, people, etc.
        So fences felt fresh and it still feels fresh every time I visit an entry for the lens artist theme this week.
        Anyhow – overheard (at Becky’s) your bestie was under the weather – sending well wishes for her

      4. Thanks Yvette. She is ok and getting better. She gave the cold to me but I seemed to get over it quicker. Probably less stress in my life. She is doing a house renovation. Well wishes received with thanks.
        It is good to see a word prompt or theme that inspires. I refrained from making a fence post joke πŸ˜€

  2. Eavesdropping on conversations is an interesting part of blogging, isn’t it? πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I admit, I thought ‘fences???’ Not sure I have any and a bit of a dull subject, but then, the challenge is designed to make you think and interpret. I always use new shots anyway, because I have the most chaotic filing system. In fact, no system at all! πŸ™‚ Have a nice week, Brian!

    1. It is a wonderful part of blogging indeed. I hate it when people don’t have the like available on all comments. I enjoy liking someone elses comment when it would be the same/similar to mine. I have a system that is very broad and takes ages to find some things. Have a fab week too Jo xx

      1. I turned likes off comments when we were getting all that Russian spam stuff. Maybe time to turn it back on again. Sorry, I’m another who just loves to eavesdrop and butt in. As Jo well knows… πŸ˜‰

  3. I love all of these – difficult to find a favorite…all favorites. Love the variety and the angles, but maybe most of all the harmony in them. Love that you take in animals – that web in the fence with light seeping through. Every picture has a feeling that resonates with me. This is a countryside i would love to hike. That first shot is pure harmony.

  4. I agree with you, Brian, that wire fence is easier to make. In our part of the world, especially in the cities, more permanent fence such as bricks and concrete fence, wooden fence that blocks the view is preferred for privacy. So it seems like people are fenced into their houses except for the open front yards.

    I love the spider web in the wire fence. I watched spiders spinning the webs between my trees. πŸ™‚
