Fences and gates in black & white

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Fences and Gates

I went to my daughters pace today. A drive through the countryside from my patch of forest to her patch of forest. I go through a small town on the way so took the opportunity to grab a few shots in the town and some fences and gates along the roads.

The first one I see as I head down the road that has a bit of character. On the left see the old wagon a bit obscured by the rails. You would have seen that a few of my posts in the past.

I didn’t drive around the town just took a couple of gates along the way.20200320_blog_challenge_blackandwhite_fences_gates_copmanhurst_house1
I love this gate20200320_blog_challenge_blackandwhite_fences_gates_copmanhurst_house2

This fence stretches a fair way. The gate looks like it has seen better times

Further along stands these impressive cattle yards. This is only a small part of them.20200320_blog_challenge_blackandwhite_fences_gates_lilydale rd2_yards
This gate has been here for as long as I can remember. You have to open and close it to head to the river crossing.20200320_blog_challenge_blackandwhite_fences_gates_lilydale rd2_gate
A few years ago I posted this tree which raised a few comments. The wires used to go across the tree and the tress decided to incorporate then into its trunk. I am glad it is still there. 20200320_blog_challenge_blackandwhite_fences_gates_tree_copmanhurst

I thought I should show you the tree from the past

Fences

The word prompt from Sue at Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Fences

I like a fence that defines a garden
180215_which way_garden gate

Or a fence that disappears downhill with nature growing on its surface

Or a fence that keeps cattle on one side or the other

Or an old fence that is built in the bush using posts and wire and is still standing

Or even a bit tumble down, it’s still a fence

Or a place for a spider to build a webspiders web_wire fence_named_home_dec 2017

Or one that is…….well just make sure you shut the gate

Or a fence that provides a post for an Eastern Yellow Robin to sit and look for a snack

Or in the featured photo, a place for an Eastern Rosella to rest for a while

Fences have their uses

The old fence

The fence is a good place to grow ferns

The wire still holds the fence up

Some fences make good houses

Other fences are for perching on

Fences keep stock safe
