Good Fences #102 - Fancy Iron Gate

Welcome! - It's time for some GOOD FENCES.

This awesome meme is hosted by Theresa from,
(The Run-a-round Ranch Report).





Today I am featuring a fence/gate that I have walked by numerous times on one of my regular walking routes.

This first photo was taken way back in October of 2014 at 3:00 in the afternoon.


I listed the date/time because the color of this fence is rather deceiving.  It's looks almost white in this photo but as you'll see in the next photo's it's actually is more gray toned.


Here is a shot that makes the gate look gray.  - This one was taken in September of 2015 as are all the remaining photos.    Perhaps the shade of the trees cast a darker shadow on the gate panel causing it to look more grayish toned.

Most of the time the gates are never closed as you can see from this shot.  I just love the fancy iron work here and even though some of the paint is pealing off I think that adds to the charm of the gate.

Here the gate to the driveway is all the way open and I shot this from the sidewalk where you can see the white wall pillars and the lamps on top.

Finally a shot of the gate across the driveway.  It's old and a bit rusty in spots but overall I really like this gate.

Have a super great day.  Thanks for stopping by.

  13. A beautiful, ornate gate. Interesting how the color changes, probably due to changing light conditions.

  18. Oh Ida, I adore these gates!
    Anything with an aged patina is pleasing to me eye!
    It is a beautiful pattern and the iron work has been done by an artisan I would think.
    My daughter wants something similar to replace old ones but the cost is horrific now.
    Some of these trades are falling by the wayside - it's such a pity.

  19. It really is a work of art. And I know about the lighting...it's so bright here in Florida that many of my photos are washed out. It's nice to see the difference in your photos. You did great! Hugs, Diane

  33. The elaborate design makes the fence and gate very attractive. Light has made the color elusive, but dark gray looks good.

  34. i really like the rustic look of the old metal. beautiful photos of them. the way the light hits things changes their look completely and these are proof of that.

  37. I can certainly see why you love to photograph this fence. It's beautiful! The ornate ironwork is lovely even though it's aged....I think that's partly why it's so beautiful.

  39. Aged wrought iron has a special character, doesn't it?
    Stopping by from Good Fences and I'm glad I found you. This is my first visit.
    I hope you'll come share at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2016/02/the-walls-of-san-juan.html

  40. Very nice shots. I think the peeling paint and the rust just add to it's charm. A thing isn't beautiful because it lasts forever, right?

    ReplyDelete
  41. It's a real conundrum. Getting accurate colour reproduction is tricky. So much depends on the light. If it's too bright it can bleach the colour right out, and if it's not clear it adds tones that weren't there to begin with. It's a problem.
