Old fences

One day last week when I was coming home from town I came up behind a milk tanker heading in the same direction.  Tanker drivers are not usually known for slow driving but this one was simply crawling along kicking up clouds of dust.  There are no opportunities to overtake a truck and trailer on our road so I pulled over, reached for my camera and looked around for a subject.  What better than a roadside fence?



Love old fences.




I'll be away for a few days so have scheduled this post but won't be able to visit other Good Fences participants until Monday. 

If any of Theresa's participants is passing by, could you link my post for me, please.  Cheers.

  2. Interesting fence photos. Note that all of them are in need of serious repair. Perhaps this is because few farmers raise cattle or sheep any more and fence quality isn't important?

  4. Rusty old barbed wire makes for an interesting piece of fence. There's very little of it left here.

  11. Little else has the character or holds as many stories as a good old fence. You've captured them beautifully Pauline.

  12. Just stopping by the side of the road can give you a really good idea of where you are, not just scenically but also in what kind of world.

    I like yours. and all your fence pictures. Very appealing, all of them. as a view I like the last one best.
