Fenced In

Today is the first day of the month, and that mean's it's Theme Day for participating City Daily Photo bloggers. Today's theme is Fences.

It's a shame that someone swapped concrete blocks for wood in this historical Oaklawn fence, but you can still admire the handpicked river rock in the pillars. Learn more about the history of this Greene & Greene designed South Pas neighborhood at my Patch column here, or get the Cliff Notes' version from this blog post.

I like your b&w choice for this shot.

I can see this as the opening shot for an old episode of The Twilight Zone. Rod Serling's voice is about to speak.

I love stone and rock work. Look at the angles mixed with the irregularity of those rocks!!

I hate those concrete blocks but love the original rock.

lovely old shot.

I believe the blocks were installed as a "preservation method" when the wood kept rotting out and and quake fix. Sad. Perhaps a scout project to faux paint the blocks is in order?

What a strange wall/fence. We are seeing so many unusual fences today. Yours in fascinating, Laurie.

Did anyone post a photo of a seedy-looking guy selling televisions, iPods, and cameras out of the back of a truck?

Oh, give me land, lots of land, under starry skies above
Don't fence me in
Let me ride thru the wide-open country that I love
Don't fence me in
Let me be by myself in the evening breeze
Listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees
Send me off forever, but I ask you please
Don't fence me in

Very interesting picture. I hadn't noticed the concrete before.
