Locked fence

I spotted a couple of fences at the beach last week that I found interesting.

It was mid morning and there was so much glare that I couldn't really see my subject through the viewfinder.  Literally point and shoot.  I'll use that for the excuse for getting the power pole front and centre of the shot.


To stop vehicles accessing the grassed area between the houses and the beach there was a locked chain fence.  I thought I was focused on the locks but obviously not.  I'd love to hear the story behind the two locks when one would have done the job. 


Away from the beach, along the main road through town, these neighbouring  fences caught my eye.  Two interpretations of a solid fence.


I'm linking to Good Fences.  I really enjoy looking at the other contributions each week.

  1. lots of different styles, there! the 2 locks might be because of access needed by two owners - each having their own lock on the chain to open it when they need to. :)

  2. It is rather strange having locks like that. I loved seeing the different fences tho.

  7. I can see why you wouldn't want cars driving on that area. - I rather like the last shot with the sturdy stone wall and the huge log fence.

  10. I think they relied on two locks because they did not have a long enough chain and they had a piece of chain. That last photo is lovely. Intriguing what might lie behind.

  11. Strange indeed, yet there must be a good reason behind it! Lovely captures too, very pretty.

  12. The two contrasting fences in the last shot are beautiful! As for the two locks, maybe they at some point the key was lost for one, so it was left and another added.

  13. Love your photos of fences.
    Also, I must tell you, your header photo makes me wish I could just pop into that picture and BE there!
