Friday's Fences

I found this fence made from old telephone poles at a park near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The fence separates the playground equipment from a running/walking path and a section of nearby woods.
A vine found enough dirt to take root.
This photo shows the fence near the natural wood setting beside the park.
The reason for visiting the park - my eighteen month old grandson Sammy!
Linking to Friday's Fences.

Extreme weathering of the old poles gives a great texture.
A fine way to show off your grandson with a contrast to the old fence.

That fence has lots of character - I love repurposed things! And what a sweet little boy!

Gorgeous old fence, Carletta... Amazing how the fences in the east are so different from the ones in Texas.....

That old vine is Virginia Creeper.. It grows anywhere and everywhere.

That little grandson is such a Cutie Pie.
Hugs,
Betsy

Good to see that the sensible authorities in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, can envisage a new life for old telegraph poles.
Presently in my street, the old poles are being replaced. Maybe I should go and get the "bossman" in to read your blog. Seems to be an ungodly lot of work, with wires, boxes etc. having to be taken from the old to the new. So far this work has been going on for over two weeks. Thankfully they inform you that all power for about 8 hours is cut off. My building was the first to be done. It is fascinating to just stand and watch the detail of it all.
Great young grandson, Sammy. With the blonde hair and build, he might be a swimming or surfing star of the future.
I wondered where you had got to!
I guess you had loads of fun.

Weather report: Miserable - raining on and off. Not helping the guys on the power poles at all.

Sammy is absolutely adorable. I like the fence as well. That's a novel use of old telephone poles.

I can tell those poles have been there a while. The moss gives their age away!

He's such a charmer! That post-fence makes me want to try to walk on top of it.

Great fence! I love the way they angle the tops this way and that. And that grandson is a cutie!

Faye said...

I remember when old telephone poles used to be recycled for fencing--apparently still do although have seen in a long time. Your closeup shots are so clear and in-focus, revealing some wonderful detail.

And what a cutie patootie you had as a photographer's assistant!

Revrunner said...

I like the randomness of that second shot.
