L/Alphabe-Thursday

 Ladders

L is for Ladders

Bottom right and moving clockwise:  Sharon Temple ladder (East Gwillimbury) leading to second story (see HERE for more information), in an apple orchard, on a Canadian National train and on a house being renovated
 
 Scary, me thinks


Still scary, but not as much as the one above

Nice group here EG.. Being paranoid about height you're not going to find me up a ladder anytime soon :)

Minoru Saito said...

Hi! Nice captures. They are very interesting shots. Thanks for sharing.

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

I second what PerthDaily said...I am a big ole scaredy cat about heights. Nice collection for L.

Lowell said...

Super bunch of pics for your theme...I don't much like ladders 'cause I tend to fall off of them, but they are a necessary evil, especially if one is vertically challenged!

Revrunner said...

I think OSHA should have a look at these. :-)

William Kendall said...

Excellent shots... particularly the one from Sharon Temple.

Buttons said...

Oh I have to show this post to My Hero.....ladders you know he has a thing for them:) Great shots. I love the silo ladder you know the rickety one:) Hug B

Kate said...

If we weren't bloggers would we even notice the variety of something so mundane as ladders? I think that we are fortunate to have our senses awakened by this photographic activity we all share. Love them all, except the scary silo ladder.

see you there! said...

Great group of ladders. I like the clever letters in your collage too. Ladders on silo's look frightening even the one in good repair.

Some ladders look a LOT more stable than others, great series!

Birdman said...

I'll pass on everyone of them.

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Great group of ladders! I don't think I would climb any of them though.

Cathy H. said...

I love your ladder finds! It makes for a great series!

NatureFootstep said...

lol, what can I say? Love it! giggling :)

TexWisGirl said...

yup - pretty scary all the way through, if you ask me!

Gail Dixon said...

Me-thinks that one looks scary, too! Yikes!!!!

Chris Rohrer said...

I like looking at them......just not climbing them:)

Sandra said...

my favorite ladder is your laddered letters.. that is just to cool and creative... both those ladders are scary and i would not climb either of them.. i like that pile of ladders to

Lorna said...

Hi, is it Thursday where you are? do you have a time-travelling ladder, or are you just super-efficient?

Margaret Adamson said...

HI No, you would not get me up either of the 2nd or 3rd ladder.

John "By Stargoose And Hanglands" said...

I used to skip up those things but nowadays I prefer terra firma. Interesting and contrasting group of pictures.

Cindy said...

Now this sounds like an interesting blog party. I wouldn't attempt that ladder either, scary is putting it mildly. Very nice shots, enjoy your the party. Perhps I can join in one day if I learn the rules.

LONDONLULU said...

Oh that one is super scary! I applaud the brave one who manages to scale it!

Jacquelineand.... said...

Ladders and heights have never bothered me...but that first ladder? Uh uh, no way!

RedPat said...

Don't trust them and don't like them! ;-)

Robyn Goddard said...

Wow, you found lots of different ladders. The ladder in your second picture is scary looking! I like the the stack of ladders on the lower left hand side of the collage.

Halcyon said...

A nice selection of ladders, but I wouldn't use them! I'm bad enough when they're firmly on the ground let alone all wonky!

cieldequimper said...

That's a real collection!

Mama Zen said...

Whoa! That one really is scary!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Bill took a bad fall off a ladder years ago, so scary ladders make me shudder.

LindyLou Mac said...

Ladders can make interesting compositions.

Judy said...

Wonderful ladder captures. I'd say that one is a wee bit scary.

Carol L McKenna said...

Neat photos and very creatively done for L ~ thanks for visiting ~ carol, xxx

Lee@A Guide to Northeastern Gardening said...

Very artistically done and a bit scary! Thanks for visiting me in winter wonderland!

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

me and ladders had a parting of ways years ago for good reason. those shots actually make me feel a little woozy!

lovely l post though...

Jeanne said...

Those ladders look like something I would not do very well with, especially that top one. You asked what lens that I had rented. It is a nikkor 200/400mm lens and was really great , but much to big to handle well without alot of difficulty. Not planning to buy one.... for sure

Jackie Mc Guinness said...

Great selection for this week!

Karen S. said...

Ladders, how cool! I like this very much. Of course the house outside and inside, are my first favorite photos, and then the fallen and scattered about hanging ladder is next as a favorite.

Elaine said...

Some rickety ladders there YIKES! Wonderful photos !

edenhills said...

Um. Pretty sure I wouldn't want to try either of the last two. Great photos though!

ladyfi said...

Interesting ladders - that first one looks terrifying!

Betty Manousos said...

great set of photos. the ladders are wonderfully photographed.
have a great thursday~

Kay said...

Ditto what Kate mentioned: interesting how having a camera in your hands makes you notice the otherwise mundane. Though your shots are anything but mundane and you've harvested an great crop of ladders here. The one in the middle gives me jitters just looking at it.

Stuart said...

I think you nailed the theme.

Lola said...

Superb collection of shots as always!

Rose said...

I'd have to be forced to use the second one up....so glad I did not have to use orchard ladders! I had a thing that had hydraulics that lifted me up and down, etc!

Rose Clearfield said...

Great theme! The ladder on the train is brilliant.

Small City Scenes said...

Cool images for Ladders. Kinda scary for me too. MB

Judie said...

My balance is so bad that when I saw your photos, I gripped the arms of the chair!!!!

Sarah~Magnolia Surprise said...

Oh yeah, I'm definitely climbing that middle one.... ha! As if. I'm uncomfortable on the second step of a step stool!

Carver said...

Fun mix of ladders.

Pam Beers. said...

You have such an exquisite eye. Never looked at ladders from an artistic standpoint. You make them look beautiful. Don't like climbing them.

Lmkazmierczak said...

fredamans said...

Lovely ladders! Even the precarious looking ones!

Jenny said...

I love, love, love the ladders in the apple orchard!

Thanks for linking to the letter "L".
