I looked up and there it was. It wasn’t new. It was worn, aged and broken. Perched on top of a hill overlooking the river, it has seen much. It was eager to see me and share its stories. For you see, it has seen many things but rarely has visitors. “Touch me”, it said. I touched the old fence and was transported through time, witnessing family picnics, lovers stealing a kiss in the night, and beautiful sunsets. As I was leaving, it asked that I share it’s story. So go ahead, look real hard. Find your story.
Up Next: Lake Isabella: Up Close.
Looks like a very peaceful, quiet place. I love the shots that show the water. It just adds to the tranquility.
Thanks so much.
Take a look … brilliant angel!
Aaahhh yes…porthole to the past…exactly.
a hole in a fencepost is probably just as good as a hole in a stone to look through if you want to see faeryland.
Love those shots….that really resembles where I live.

Thanks for the re-blog.
great photos as usual. I have a wordpress question for you. I noticed when I post a blog that the people who get my posts do not have the like button click on at the end of the post like you have. I have the comment button, but not the like. Do you know how I can make sure everyone gets the like button? thanks for any techy help you can give me…
I thought I posted a response. Sorry for the delay. It looks like you go to Settings and then Sharing. More info here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/likes/
Oh I did, just under the wrong response.
Just Look At this , I Want to Go there 😀
Come on. It’s a great place to visit.
Look at this article: http://en.support.wordpress.com/likes/ It says to go to “Settings” and then “Sharing.” Hope this helps.
It’s a beautiful fence. And yes, it does entice one to want to sit down next to it in a chair with a glass of wine, almost as if to talk to it and ask what it has seen all those many years, the nocturnal animals at night, the storms and such. Great post!
Thanks so much. Glad you like it.
Thanks so much.
Great fences! You should send some of these to The Ambiguity of Fences blog http://bzebza.net
Wow! Really LOVE the view through the hole. I’m always looking for new ways to view things. Thanks!!!
Nice! I built many miles of fence like that during summers away from college. Wonder what they look like now?
Chris, interesting. Where did you build them?
Mainly in southern Michigan, nearly 30 years ago!
Not too far then. I bet they look similar to these then.
Such a double pleasure…enjoying your photos and relishing your titles. lenorelook (above) is right,
I really enjoy your work.
Thanks so much. That is very kind of you to say. )
You know what, it’s probably my mind, but I read the title of the post as ‘Lady Isabella’, which gave the photos an added element of poetry, as they seemed to have a character who I couldn’t see, but was present anyway…
Nice idea. 🙂
Thanks so much. ::)
So close to Cincy, eh?
Those split rails always have me thinking of young Abe Lincoln, even if it was a much different kind of fence he was constructing.
🙂 Nice thought. Thanks.
Interesting photos! The fence has a story and we see it through your eyes!
:)– Judy, you are too kind.

beautiful shots, i like the soft colour tone!
You have captured a great atmosphere….
OH GOD I can’t even look at fence posts… I had a friend with a farm who’s fence post needed repair…. OH
Jasmine, you should have gotten your hammer and nails and fixed her own up.
LOL I’m a good friend what can I say!!!
Reminds me when I was a kid. I would love to scratched my name into wooden benches and trees. Imagine if the fence had “scribblings” from all it witnessed. Amazing.
You should see if you could still find your name. A Tasha scavenger hunt.
beautiful, both the words and the photos…I like the detail, very nice…it also is interesting to see the way this fence was constructed…each rail goes into one of the three holes in each post…does seem like it would be sturdy enough??? maybe they nailed the rails in the holes?
Yeah cool huh? Thanks Heather.
