Linking in with Friday Fences
I was asked this week about my rationale behind Friday Fences. When I stumbled upon the host blog of Friday Fences I just fell in love with the idea. But why? Well , I am by nature interested (curious) in people and life. I like riding on the top of double decker buses, that slow crawl trains do through suburbs past allotments, gardens and houses and I like cars that are high enough to see over the top of hedges. I like seeing the other side of a wall. One’s imagination can run wild! So a fence is perfect as you can see through them. Each fence has a purpose and a story to tell. Some are ram-shackled, some beautiful and some just functional. But each has something to say to me. Other folks just like the aesthetics of a well constructed fence and the photograph they can create. So do check out the other fences on the link above. And if you have a fence to share, why I was made most welcome by the other fence enthusiasts.
So for this week I share this with you..
OK so it’s railings on a bridge over the Costa beck, but it does fence off the river from walkers. But why choose this one..
Well that’s the start of the fence. Observe the first section. Growing up in the 50s and 60s there were no leisure centres or gyms and schools were poorly equipped, at least here in Ryedale. So these railings became for me and my friend Jane the perfect place for turning somersaults over and trying out balancing acts!! We were very lucky in other ways, as the world was a safer place and we got to play out all day with no adult anxiously watching over us. Some things in life have not got better!
Love to hear any of your child hood memories- do please share and check out the other fences too.
