Good Fences - Distant Fencing

Off in the distance-
you shall see a fence
it may be just a shadow 
of a fence 
or a fence
protecting what lies within
while
keeping out what lies beyond-
Off in the distance.





Just a shadow of a fence falls over Smoke, the groundskeeper.




"Every once in a while, people need to be in the presence of things that are really far away." - Ian Frazier





The photo above and the one below, same place different view.  First one winter, second one, early spring.




Even when looking in,

"Everything seems simpler from a distance." Gail Tsukiyama









I leave you with just a reflection of a fence.

Good variety you have here. Seasons, shadows, reflections . . . cats.

Killroy was here. Nothing to say. No words today. Using them all for my WIP, I guess.

Think I prefer the spring shot; it seems so much sharper. Nice fish.

Cats and the sun, they just like it.

Some nice fence shots here. I'm going with the Spring shot and the shot of the kitty with the fence shadow as my favorites today.

Hi Karen

What a great post! I especially like the goldfish/reflection one.

Thanks for the comment you left on my blog - I tried to reply on there but Blogger wasn't being cooperative.

I laughed out loud when I followed the link - hilarious!! No, I haven't been there, but it would be worth a trip just to see the half-a-bull :)

Have a great weekend x

JJ said...

I can't believe I am saying this, but I like the winter view better than the spring one. Great shots!

Karen...you managed to capture some great fences. But, I must admit, I'm definitely partial to your groundskeeper!!
