Beach Fence/Friday Fences

Fencing and shadow, Pickering

While the entrance into Frenchman's Bay is being deepened for bigger boats, fencing has been erected to keep people from getting too close to the dangerous machinery.

I am linking to Friday Fences here.

The fence is really there to protect the locals from the tourist photographers:-)

Very cool. The fencing is almost like a texture that you added.

I have lovely memories of going to Frenchman's Bay when I was small with my Dad to go fishing. Days have certainly changed.

The chain link fence make a distinct repetitive pattern. I prefer the second photo because of the colors.

Buttons said...

Love this fence it is not as interesting when you just look at it walking by but you made it beautiful. B

Lowell said...

If that we're in Florida, people would trample the fence and steal the expensive machinery!

Sandra said...

Nice textures of the fence.

Lake Ontario looks beautiful in your second photo, but I'll bet it is still very cold. I like your first photo very much.

Wonderful shadows that temp fence makes. Hope the construction is done before summer season begins.

Great view through the not so likeable fence.

Jill said...

Such pretty shots!

SandyCarlson said...

What a little lastic can do! I dread any barrier between me and the sea, though.

Here's to dreaming in orange!

Randy said...

Interesting shots.

Tanya Breese said...

that water is such a beautiful shade of blue!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Sounds like a good plan EG, people do tend to be overly curious about going-ons! The diamond pattern makes a super image.

Tricia Hays said...

Jan n Jer said...

LIke the fence shadows on the first shot!

Rose said...

Love that blue sky in the bottom...I am so ready for a few days of blue skies...and if there are clouds, let it be the big puffy ones floating along on the breeze!

Marie said...

All the designs and textures are wonderful! And looking through the fence at Lake Ontario too, so much fun! Both are beautiful photos!

barbara l. hale said...
