Perspective #1

Becky’s Square Photo Challenge: Square Perspective

Here’s what it’s all about

“To join us create your square post, and include a pingback to one of my daily square posts and use the theme’s tag – SquarePerspectives. I’d love it if you also left a comment, conversations with you make the challenge so much fun.

Now to get you started here are a few perspective definitions;

  • Art – the method by which solid objects drawn or painted on a flat surface are given the appearance of depth and distance.
  • Geometry – the way that objects appear smaller when they are further away and the way parallel lines appear to meet each other at a point in the distance.
  • Point of View – a particular way of considering (looking at) something or the capacity to view things in their relative importance
  • Vista – seeing something over distance or time

I will be sharing a square daily and I’d love it if you did the same. You can though join us weekly or even just pop in occasionally with your squares. The frequency of your squares depends on you and your blog. The only absolute rule for joining in is that your main photograph must be square in shape!”

I am having my whole property fenced as the devastating fire last December burnt out most of my fences, around 2kilometers. I haven’t taken any photos of what’s been done so far unfortunately. This afternoon I thought that my unfinished front fence was a good start to Becky’s Square Photo Challenge.

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
