Fences galore

I quite like this one for some reason. (My tendency would have been to zoom in more.) (Which I also did, but this might be the best one.)

I dunno. Maybe they are just the most visually interesting things in this post-industrial little burg.

I read once a little fiction story about a guy who was once walking by the fence which had uneven spaces.. The flashes of the sun through the spaces got the guy programmed with some mission and he was working like crazy until it was completed! Once the deed was done a simple investigation led him back to the fence.. that was already demolished.

Eolake, are you sure that it has nothing to do with some subconscious motions or destiny calls of yours?

maybe looking at fences reminds us we are free. Whatever we can objectively look at out there is not us; we are not "fenced in" but merely witnesses of all the boundaries appearing.

then again, you may just like fences.

Quite possible.

The thing is, I like patterns.

And also, fences are partly see-through, which gives space.

And it makes abstract whatever you see through the fence. I like abstraction.

"Fences are partly see-through".

Yup. They visually draw a boundary, but only if we choose to abide by it. Or we can let our eyes freely leap across.

Like a pair of white pool balls.
(How's that for a Daliesque image?)
