Looks to be an old one! I like the scrollwork in that 2nd one.

Wonderful! I love the rusty latch.
And I've always liked your banner and quote!

Kathy said...

I think both the fence and the gate were probably hand-crafted. Nice find.

Carletta said...

Linda,
It is quite old. If I must admit it has surrounded this cemetery since I was a teenager oh so many years ago. :)

Red said...

Rather interesting fence. I wonder how old the wire is. I've seen it and it's always on something old like the cemetery.

I love those old scrolly fences and that gate is a beauty. Pamela

Cemetery fences: Are they for keeping the dead in or the living out? :)

Fantastic! My fav is the third of the latch.. It looks like a rather smallish angry alien.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Amazing how many different types of fences there are around the country... You selected some good ones this week, Carletta..

Hugs,
Betsy

Great gate and I love the rusty latch!

Elaine said...

Lovely fence, but the texture of rust on the latch (and the angry alien, thanks judy.Gmj) are the bits which I like most.

Beth said...

I really like this wrought iron gate. Your macro of the latch is wonderful.

Nancy Claeys said...

Love these old fences and gates and your perspective is spot on, Carletta! :)

Faye said...

Love macros of old functional pieces like this gate latch--turns it into almost a piece of art.

Rita said...

If I did not know better I would have thought these were taken at the small country cemetery (here in Missouri) were my family is buried.

Great capture.

Judy said...

I like the rusty patches, especially on the fencepost!

Terri Buster said...

Old cemetery fences are so interesting and unique.

Neal said...

Those are neat pictures.

Do you know why cemeteries have fences around them? .... Because people are just dying to get in. :)
