Protect(ion)/ Photo Hunter

Gate to home hidden in the woods

The house deeper into the woodlands than I could see. I wonder what's at the end of the driveway, don't you?

Gate to home out in the open

I'm not sure what the purpose of this gate is. There is no fence around the property and the large home is in plain view.

People are doing the same thing here. They also add a couple of lion statues on each side of the gate to act as a deterrent.

One is a rustic gate with modern security and the is modern gate with no security. Well I suppose it will keep a car out but not walkers. Or maybe one would be surprised by something unknown. MB

That is the chicken said...

I like the rustic gate much better than the fancy new one...though I guess the new one will eventually be old :)

Jacob said...

I wonder who lives in this dinky little place! :-)

One problem, though. It looks like that security panel could be easily ripped right off...then what would happen?

judi said...

Oooh, Jacob has a criminal's mind set! That is sooooo cool. :)
The other is for shew. I mean the palatial house isn't enough, maybe the back yard has a moat.

I love the first one. I'm intrigued by what is hidden from view. The second on makes me laugh. Gates without fences, not matter how imposing or fancy tend to give me the giggles, ha.

Both gates are very pretty.
I was thinking about you one day and all the nice pictures you get. I decided that you must be a real estate agent.

Annie said...

Excellent post! The first photo is very intriguing while the second one is kinda funny with its fake gates! Great take on the theme.

Photo Cache said...

Great interpretation to the theme. It's interesting what players come up to interpret the theme this week.

Mystery and near stately home. A stately home needs a gate.

Rose said...

I really do wonder about what is behind that top gate..could be good or could be something bad.

kaye said...

beautiful gates, I took a picture of a gate at first, and then changed my mind :)

YTSL said...

What big houses there are in the area -- for I imagine the one with a long driveway to be even bigger than the one that's in plain view!

Leslie said...

Great post for this week - have a good weekend. :)

Must be that 2nd gate is for effect. Will stop only the honest people.

Love rustic gates, it's not only for protection but it brings elegance to your house.

Great shots. The gate is probably for show but watch out for the man traps where the walls should be!

Have a great weekend

Ann said...

when you take photos like this, do you worry that someone might come out and ask for your memory card?

I saw an old house today, but I didn't dare to venture in.

Cheers,

Ann

Great theme of having gates for the protection prompt this week.

Here's MINE Happy Saturday to you.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

There is a weird logic about most of these gates. You invest into the customizing, the opening/closing mechanism etc. Then it gets broken and remains so for eternity - in most cases, when the owners are not paranoid...

Lovely shots. Have a great weekend!

Aileni said...

Interesting garden ornament - a bit different.
I guess if you were deep in the woods a little forewarning might be helpful.

Abe Lincoln said...

A very large home in a rustic setting. The people have money or the bank loaned a lot. Nice photo.

Sandra said...

Really loved all your pictures. The gate with no fence was comical. I chose a gate for mine too.

healingmagichands said...

The purpose of the second gate is to set off the house. Sort of like a frame around a picture. Awfully big place though. How many families live there, anyway?

PERBS said...

Maybe they haven't built the fence yet but put up the gate to keep other cars out? Maybe they stopped because the world is in a recession and they are saving their money for more fun stuff? I don't know but I would love living there IF I had a maid. Ü

Ann,
I was standing on the street. It's not illegal to take photos from the road. If the owners of the house took my card, THAT would be illegal.
