Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #10: Fences
The theme for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge this week is Fences. There are fences near and far, close to home and around the globe. Some fences are made with rod iron, wood, stones, cement, plants, flowers, lava rocks or a combination of the above. The functions of the fences are to be for prohibition, protection, security, divider, or beauty. In this post, I have included some examples of the forms and functions of the fences.
Cherry blossoms between the stone and wooden fences in Japan.
Wooden railing along the steps and path to the Eagle’s Nest in Bavarian Alps, Germany. We toured inside of the building as well as enjoyed the sight of the mountain range.
Low shrubs and flowers fenced in the statute of Johann Strauss II in Vienna, Austria. We went to a Mozart/Strauss Concert in Vienna.
Rod iron fence keeps the statute of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in a small distance of the admirers, like me. In contrast to the image I have seen, all the sculptures, paintings, and souvenirs of Mozart in Salzburg, Austria have him in nice and managed hairstyle.
The high and low fences in this part of Maui, Hawaii are made with lava rocks. My husband and I were married on the beach beyond this rock fence.
The Los Angeles Arboretum houses many peacocks. They freely roam on the ground, the fences, or jump on the picnic tables with visitors around.
Winsor Castle in London is partially open to the public. Visitors stop at the rod iron fence. The day we visited, the Queen was not at “home.” She was visiting a college.
My favorite cottage in Longleat, Somerset, United Kingdom is fenced in this cozy area.
