Fence With Character by Gary Kelly

This wobbly fence caught my eye as I walked to the Manning River, Taree, Oz. I presume the iron spike half way along was used to keep the fence upright, but has come adrift. Fuji compact.

I’m a hobby photographer. In fact, I’m not sure Red Bubble should refer to me as an “artist”. But I do like to take photos that are above average, and certainly appreciate learning from my fellow Bubbleonian’s efforts as well as their comments. I use a second hand Sony Cybershot F717 (recently replaced by a new Nikon D3100) and a Fuji Finepix S7000. Photography allows me to keep souvenirs of my experiences. Today’s deeds become tomorrow’s memories.

    Well seen and captured Gary !
    Not only does the fence have great character, but
    the letterbox and house are developing nicely too.

  • It’s an old area of Taree, Trish… goes back to the river punt days before the bridge was opened in 1940. I can’t put a date on those old weatherboard houses but they look early 1900s to me.

    Thats a fabulous shot Gary a real classic.

  • I appreciate the fav, Terry. It’s one of those shots where you expect the householder to rush out and whack you over the head with a rolling pin.

    Nice leading lines here Gary.

  • I’m not sure the owner would agree with you, William. But I do. :)

    Great Aussie sight. Gotta love the curvature of that fence line!

  • Yep, otherwise it would just be another fence… which means you can’t have character if you’re perfect. :)
