Inchworm Fence

.
Half of us are still sick over here this week so I'm pulling one from the archives. Hopefully I'll be back to shooting shortly, I've got some great little shells I found at the beach last weekend that are just aching to be shot. Speaking of the beach, thank you so much Aileni for including my Three Fisherman shot as one of this week's Monochrome Weekly highlights. I'm delighted to be included among such outstanding company.
.
This fence around my neighborhood playground has always reminded me of an inchworm with its series of arches. Simple, but with great lines. A bit later in the day it casts wonderful shadows, as well.

I wouldn't be able to resist running my hands up and down the loops as I walk by.

Your fisherman picture sticks in the mind.

A graceful fence.
But now you've got me humming "Inchworm, inchworm ..."

Cool fence, I'd have to touch it and my daughter would spend as much time with the fence as she did with the playground stuff. ~ Calico Contemplations

Great photo of such an interesting fence. I hope your household is 100% healthy soon.

What a cool concept-fence... I like it! It seems as though it can't decide whether to stay rooted in cement or just start moving on...

I've posted some photos of the Aurora Borealis, you might really like these!

This is great Robin and I like the shadows and everything else I see in this photo- nice subject. Even the dirt I see on the road resembles sand its so fine compared to Hawaii..ours is made up of cinder. Have a great weekend-

I like the way my eyes "bounce" along the fence and the play of light and shadow in the photo.

Great shot... love the warmth.

It does look like a worm! Get well soon.

I can see the shados forming there now, Robin. Fascinating shape that moves between fence and sculpture.

Hey Robin, I'm back blogging and I'm doing fine. Glad to have that procedure over and done with. And to know that I don't have any clogged vessels around my heart!! Thanks for your concern and hugs! Hugs back to you! :)

Mojo said...

Awesome shot! And I was thrilled to see your fishers on the Accolade Wall. Well deserved!

Wouldn't surprise me to see this one up there too.

I wish you quick and full healing and that you feel great. When I was "sick" recently I just told myself that it was just weakness leaving the body and that it was possibly true but it felt empowering to say that.

Kindest regards,
