Life and Thyme!

Friday fences!

Here are some more of the fences I found in Santorini.

Starting with a couple of sad ones. This one from a building clearly intended as a block of holiday apartments and now fallen into disrepair before ever completed.

And this surrounding  derelict holiday accommodation, the broken sun chairs left behind.

All I can think of is the broken dreams of the owners and holidays that will never be here.

Practical ones now..

I loved the cat glimpsed through this gate.

How about this for ornate?

But my favourite- not really a fence, but..

overlooking the volcanic crater itself.

A fabulous holiday, which seems far longer ago than a month. Thank goodness for photographs and memories.

  1. A lovely series of fences and gates. I really love that wooden one.

  2. I love all the fences that you have photographed. I especially love the blue green iron one. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

  3. very nice collection on fences.

  4. Te one with workers on a break is very pretty.

  5. Nice fences especially the ornate one.

  6. Happy Friday!!! the ornate one is really nice, but they all have a story to tell right? 🙂

  7. Fencing is an a convenient cover-up of broken dreams not just of protection. Pics have always been a valuable companion of memories. Truly said Cathy!

  8. What a really interesting post. Who would have thought that fences could be so interesting? You have certainly captured some wonderful stories. xx

  9. You found a lovely variety of gates and fences. If I had to choose a favorite, it would be the same as yours – overlooking the volcanic crater. That must have been a wonderful holiday!

    Thanks for your visit and comment on my chapel series. 🙂
