Fences have been around for a very long time. They are used to keep people or animals in and out. The song, "Don't Fence Me In" keeps popping into my head, but I like fences. I think they serve a good purpose. However, I don't much like fences that are plain and ugly and too modern. I think fences should stand proud and display architectural character. I thought living in Las Vegas was going to be quite a challenge finding fences with character because as you drive around town, mostly what you see are plain old ugly block walls stretching from neighborhood to neighborhood. Surprisingly, my exploration netted me a myriad of fine looking fences, or rather fine looking objects that the fences contained. I also pulled a few from my archives from Oregon and California. I hope you enjoy seeing an ordinary object through different eyes. Let's begin the tour. Don't forget, you can click on the pictures to enlarge the image. It's much nicer that way because you get to see more detail.
Thanks for stopping by. Mucho gracias!
