Rusty Old Fence


It's actually not the fence that is old and rusty, but the chain that is fastened around the fence post across from what you see in the above photo. And "old" might not be quite right either...


The view from this side is not so very interesting. But let's walk around and take a closer look.


Already better.


Isn't this just a wonderful display of rust? You wonder why it is here, it doesn't look as if it was used recently. I'm not quite sure the lock is even working.


But it's the stuff for great photos!

That's why I'm linking this to Theresa's "Good Fences".

Carola, that's a fence that is definite need of repair. Great entry for the fence meme.

Super Fotos! :))

Hi Carola,
So, should we call it a weathered fence? :)
The solitary chain and lock adds an air of mystery to the photo.
Have a Wonderful Day!
Peace :)
