I like fences and the only difficult thing about this post was trying to limit the number of photos, not sure how well I did on that :). Here are a variety of fences from Martha’s Vineyard – Plymouth, MA – Cape May, NJ – Milford, PA.
One of the most touching fences to me is fire hydrant fence in the Newark Firemens section of the Mt Pleasant Cemetery in Newark, NJ where my great-great grandfather is buried.
I don’t know how I missed posting this picture the first time but I really like the composition so tah, dah… here it is.

Boundaries impose limits on us, whether they’re social constructs or real, physical objects. They’re there to stop us from doing or saying what we actually want to. But they also give structure to our actions and frame our movements. In photography, they help our eyes make sense of what we see and convey a sense of visual narrative. They constantly invite us to push against them.
My first photo of my interpretation of boundaries is this ‘do not enter’ sign on a usually closed gate in a private lake community in NJ…
My collage is from my visit to the Thomas Edison Laboratories in West Orange, New Jersey last December…
Weekly prompt: From the interior walls of our home, to our book club’s Facebook wall, to the community bulletin board at the local market, walls are the canvases of our lives: where stories are read, voices are heard, ideas are shared. Much can be revealed from the items on a wall, from old postcards to long-forgotten flyers.
This week, consider the walls you’ve erected and decorated, the halls you walk down each day, or the exteriors you’ve ignored or neglected. What do these walls reveal about a place, people, or you?
I haven’t decorated, erected or painted any of these walls but each one has intrigued me enough to take a picture.
