Theme day: Fences

Today is theme day so I am taking a short diversion from our current trip.

Over the years I've taken photos of dozens of fences because they are one of my recurring themes.  I decided to pick my favourite from each of my blogs.

  1. What a superb collection! I cannot fault any of them. They are 'australiana' incarnate.

  2. The last one in particular recalls a wonderful week in the Blue Mountains spent with a toddler more than 20 years ago.

  6. I don't think I have seen that way of building fences around here. Strange how these little things differ.

  10. Oh what an absolute feast of super photography. Just love them all. Adore that kookaburra but the spider's web is absolutely perfection.

  12. Wonderful selection of fences Joan - I love them all starting at that gorgeous macro capture of a giant cobweb on a strainer post and ending with the most beautiful capture of kookaburra - so Australian.

  13. Great group of fences. Much more interesting and appealing than something with a fresh coat of paint.
