  2. I really did have fun with this. I have lots of fences, but I wasn’t at all sure how they would look as monochrome. I guess you will be the judge. My favorite in your batch is the beach … I love the textures and contrast of both tones and texture between the fence, the man with binoculars, and the beach beyond. You inspire me!

  3. I like the “please do not bother the tenants” sign on the fence in your top picture.

    My initial tendency is to think of fences as only wooden. This was a good exercise for me to realize a few things.First, that I do not usually shoot wooden fences for some reason – so I will have to keep an eye out for that. And – realizing that i do tend to shoot a lot of metal fences, railings, gates – which I have always found interesting – though I have a great appreciation for old style wooden fences, too. Especially run down ones, broken pickets, or colonia-stylel barricades. Randy
