Weekly Photo Challenge: Boundaries

05 Feb

This week I decided to take the challenge of the Weekly Photo Challenge.  Each week WordPress will post a theme for the photo challenge. This week’s theme is boundaries.  Fences have alway been a structure defining boundaries.  They come in many shapes and forms.  Some have even become invisible like the ones used by pet owners. Sometimes fences are a structure for enhancing your surroundings in landscaping designs but convey an image of a boundary depending on their placement.

      Thanks again for the heads up on the challenge. It will give me something to “focus” on each week with my new camera.

      Thanks Sunshine. One of my favorite photos is still one of the photos from your flat in London where you can see the waterfront and the man walking his dog surrounded by fresh snow.

    A great shot, Jeanne. I like the leading line of the fence into the picture.

      Thanks Ted. Isn’t it funny how we are drawn to certain things in photography. I love the structure of bridges and architecture in general, they are my favorite things to look at, but fences also always draw me in as well. I’m not one to take many portrait photos.

    Beautiful, Jeanne…the colour of the fence’s shadow is stunning!

      Thanks Wendy! It was fun taking pictures on a day when the sun was finally out for a change.

    I love this photo, Jeanne. It’s beautiful – snow and fence.

    Boundaries are good for us, proper boundaries, of course. (Anything can be misused.) Boundaries establish guidelines so that we may live peaceably with one another, understanding how far into another’s space we should go. We want to visit, not invade. Blessings to you, Jeanne.

      Thanks for your insight this morning. I think that there is a quote somewhere that says something about fences making good neighbors.

    Looks as if one of the pieces of farm equipment is trying to escape it’s boundaries.

      You may be right….Maybe it wants to return to its real purpose.

    Great picture–very intriguing fence and interesting when thinking about fences as boundaries.

      Thanks Thomas. Today as I was traveling all kinds of ideas for boundaries came to mind…Stop signs, No trespassing signs, railroad crossings, road closure baracades…Members only…

    Lovely pic … that the fence pattern is repeated in the snow-blue shadow and that the eye stops travelling to infinity at the abandon equipment is a bonus. I didn’t realize WordPress posts a weekly photo challenge, but I’m going to look for it now. Well done!

      I believe that this the first week for the WordPress weekly photo challenge.

    Jeanne, you have an incredible eye–and should be making a lot of money with your photography!

      Thanks Joe, I’m working on your suggestions but am very frustrated with the lack of hours I have available in a day to work on my interests. The business takes so much time. We didn’t get home from work until after 7pm tonight and then had to go on a tow call at 9pm and just walked in the door now at 10:15pm.
