Fort George/ Macro Monday

Spikes atop the door and also pounded into the face of the panel on the inside


Open doors seen from inside the fort

The left half shows the door that when closed faces the outside of the fort. The door on the right side faces inside when closed.

End of spikes pounded over

What textures, shapes you've captured today.

Honest Abe Lincoln said...

I suppose the spikes didn't always work either. That would have been a frightful way to live.

Annelie said...

Fantastic macro image!

Thanks for the comment on my blog and have a nice day!

Jacob & Lois Anne said...

Excellent photographs, EG ... they put one at the "scene." You'd almost think residents of the fort didn't want certain folks visiting them!

I'm not "back," but will post on occasion here and there.

Thanks for caring!

Impressive door!

Woody said...

Nasty looking spikes! I like the pattern created by the metal in the door.

Not too many home invasions here!

Alarming, but rather beautiful all the same. You always find something out of the ordinary.

Jan said...

Yes, I'd hesitate before climbing over that gate. Great shots, all.

Kathy said...

Ouch!

Inger-M said...

What a sturdy structure! I love the different textures, and the lovely shades of grey and brown. Great shots!

Marvin said...

Great textures and color tones. I wouldn't try climbing over the gate.

lisaschaos said...

There's something that appeals to me about the huge boards and large bolts used in forts. Very nice!

stardust said...

Fortified gate is terrifying, while patterns on wood made by metal is pleasing to see. No one would dare to climb over it.

Carletta said...

Ouch! Great texture!
Great workmanship.

Wow a blast from the past. Great shots!

Judy said...

I was looking at all the spikes on the gate, and thinking how afraid they must be of invaders, and then I read that it is a fort! Well, of course! Can you imagine living in a fort like that?

I have never seen any gates with those steel/iron spikes before. Of course, I have not seen many historical places either. Sure would not want to fall on one of those.

Love all the textures of the old wood.

dawn said...

These are awesome shots!

Amazing photographs of the gates... sturdy... strong...

icallithamp said...

That's awesome! Would love to learn more about the history of how and why this came to be built. ~Jeanne

That actually looks a bit medieval- great shots!

Sandy's witterings said...

A good variation of photos here on your blog.
These gates and walls ring a bell for for a lad brought up in the 70s on a diet of cowboy films - they're just how you'd imagine and American fort to be (although I do not you're in Canada)

VP said...

This is a real fort!

Rebecca said...

Those are some seriously impressive doors!
