Cee’s Black and White Challenge: Fences and Gates

When I saw Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge topic this week I thought about two things. First, this photo—I took it in a graveyard last year in West Marin. Second, I thought about a slogan on a T-shirt that I saw someone wearing on the street in San Francisco about 20 years ago when a Java convention was in town: In a world without fences, who needs Gates?

It’s a tough crowd, but a bucolic setting.

Daytime photo of a broken rail fence and cattle in the distance.

    Beautiful. The black and white really allows the light and shadows to come alive.

    Looks like that fence needs a little TLC. Wonderful photo.

      Yes, the fence needs a lot of TLC. It appears that the cattle pushed their way into the cemetery and made a real mess.

    It looks eerily beautiful. And dramatic. Love the quote.
