Wire and Wood

What a great quote from Sophia! I loved the fence photos...especially that last one. Looks like the vines are trying very hard to hide that fence!

Mimi said...

Gorgeous photos of wire and wood fencing Carletta!
The last one of the vines climbing up the fence is particularly nice. Thanks for your encouragement re championships- it really helps a lot.

HI Carletta, Great 'rural' pictures of your 'wire and wood'....

I laughed at Sophia's quote.... Guess she wanted to show off her beautiful body... Me???? I try to hide most of mine... ha ha
Hugs,
Betsy

Ha ha Carletta
How brilliant is Sophia Loren?
I think Sophia being photgraphed next to that fence may have considerably improved the "vista"!

These are nice shots, Carletta. Those fence posts reminds me of a lot of old fences down home.

Andrew said...

Wonderful images to see Carletta..

Pat said...

I love these shots. There's something fascinating about old fence posts and barbed wire.

Kathy said...

Barbed wire and rough-hewn posts are very much like the fences in rural areas of Texas.

Betty Roan said...

Love the quote and the fences.

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

The photos are wonderful. I especially like the last one.
The quote is great.

George said...

I really like your photos -- and the quote.

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Great quote and I love these old wood fence posts-

Ebie said...

The wood is aged and yet still standing, could also see the lichens too.

Wood and wire is a great combination.

heyBJK said...

Wonderful photos, Carletta! I love those wood posts! And the quote made me smile!

Nancy Claeys said...

These are such neat images of old fence posts, Carletta. I wonder how long they have been there? The stories they could tell.

Thank you so much for sharing at Rural Thursdays. I hope you come back again. :)

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

We have some of that around our place. Beautiful pictures.

Faye said...

Love the light you've captured in these photos and how so many fences are made of just what's available. And Sophia,of all people, could give advice about dressing to attact attention!

Tanya said...

beautiful pictures and i enjoyed the quote too!

Amy Burzese said...

Barbed wire with rough posts are still the best!

Clytie said...

What a wonderful fence! I love the natural posts - especially the one covered with vines. Honeysuckle maybe?

Joe Todd said...

Made me smile and LOL..Thanks

Sallie (FullTime-Life.com said...

That's a real snarl in the bottom picture - I knew a man once who collected barb wire believe it or not.

Dianne said...

I love the Sophia quote
great shots, they're all composed so beautifully

SquirrelQueen said...

Old, weather-worn fences like these are my favorites.

lifeisaroadtrip said...

What great photos! Rustic fences are my favorite. Barbed wire fences remind me of roses - pretty but watch out for the thorns!

gtyyup said...

Really well done...the quote tops it off!!!
