City Fences…


Last week while we were traveling through New York City, I was fairly amazed at all the fences I saw.  Fences on bridges, streets and buildings.  Fences within fences.  Fences on top of fences.

It seems to me that there is a world of difference between city fences and country fences.  Country fences are there to keep things in, while city fences primarily keep things out, except when they are there to protect us from ourselves.

I agree with you, about the use of fences, in the city and the country!!!
Like the way you took out the colours from city images when often is everyting grey.

You did a really good job of giving us a variety of different city fences to look at. They are all so colorful and interesting. Great post. genie
