Two Equals One - Maybe

Picket to the right and rail to the left

There are two fences at the entrance to this farm: a picket fence and a rail fence, and neither one is fencing anything in as there is no fence on the driveway side until behind the barn.

A different view of the barn and driveway

They make for great fence photos anyway and the barn is pretty perched on the rise.

Strange!

Beautiful...I do like the lighting in both. That last one, with the perspectives...a stellar image!!

That's an unusual mix EG, maybe a gate and side fence are still to come :)

Hello, gorgeous view of the barn, fence and pretty sky! Great captures. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

Nancy Chan said...

It is unusual to see 2 contrasting fences. The white fence looks pretty. It is a nice, well-kept place.

Jo said...

Very unusual and pretty. Your composition and lighting is especially good! Have a great day. Jo

I like both the fences. Always good to mark a boundary.

Felicia said...

VP said...

Almost a postcard, in the best sense of the term!

Beautiful photos of the country setting along with the fences. Sometime I find fences like this too with no real reason but to just be there.
Have a great day!

Rose said...

Such a well kept barn! It is a beauty!

Lovely farm scenes!

Sandra said...

it is a wonderful old barn. maybe they had the rail, decided to replace it with white, and decided it was to expensive...

It could be that the owner started putting up one kind of fence, then was called away and when she came back she forgot the first fence and started putting up the 2nd kind of fence, then was called away and she totally forgot both fences. Maybe?

I guess it's demarcating the driveway to the lovely property. Nice barn too!

So white!

Amy at love made my home said...

A lovely building isn't it. xx

RedPat said...

They are going for the effect, EG!

Spare Parts and Pics said...

Funny how they chose two very different fence styles. Beautiful sky!!

I think the white fence looks out f place, it doesn't fit in with the beautifully rustic barn and silo.

William Kendall said...

Even if it's not practical, it's pretty.

Michelle said...

A strange combination!

TexWisGirl said...

kinda funny. leftovers. :)

LV said...

An eye catcher and make you wonder what the idea was.

Indrani said...

That is indeed thought provoking. :)
Have a great weekend!

Stephanie said...

Both are great fences!

Kay said...

I wonder if this is a concession to someone who'd always wanted a white picket fence.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

and neither one is fencing anything

They're mental fences.

A nice, well-kept farm. Usually we seem to have gates without fences either side, which is just as pointless.

s.c said...

Very strange indeed but looking at the white one its the start of the fence that still have to come along the road.

NatureFootstep said...

strange that they built it like that. The fences don´t match :)

Halcyon said...

Love the pretty sky as well as the barns!

Ruth Kelly said...

Strange placing for the fences.

edenhills said...

If they have livestock, I wonder how the honor system works? LOL

Anvilcloud said...

Fences for the sake of art, eh? Kind of delightful really.

Ida said...

Nice looking place with it's 2 different fences. I'm guessing they are more for decor then functional.
