Red Fence

Red Fence at Sunrise : Brightwood : Washington, D.C.

Out walking the other morning, I saw this red fence gate.* I liked the way the morning light was hitting it.

* Error on my part. There is no fence around this house. It's a stand-alone gate.

Ok, I love this fence. It would match my red truck! I want you to try something for me. Humor me here. I want you to go back and photograph it at different times of the day and try as many different angles etc. I did that with some feathery grasses at the Bot. Gardens and had some fun with it. We'll see.......

Who'd a thunk a rather rickety looking section of fence would make such a pleasing image.

Very nice J.

The red color and the textures pop right out. Virginia has an interesting idea. I will try that.

Cool red fence. I like the way the light enhances the different textures on the wood.

Love it! I also love Virginia's idea.... hhhmmmm what can I do that with...

VJ: Perhaps I'll go walking on Sunday morning and see what I get from this gate. The hilarious part is, there isn't a fence surrounding the property. Just this gate!


Wayne: Thanks!


Rob: The texture on the gate is what I love about this picture! As for VJ's idea, it's definitely a good one.


Andrea: Isn't it, though? I also like the light play on the textures.


Just M: Thanks! As for VJ's idea: the possibilities are endless! (I've actually done what she suggests, but with monuments and such. The outcome is quite gratifying!)

Virginia doesn't want much. does she! Lol! Actually, I want to see! Go on get going...

This photo would make a great print for a wall. Brilliant.

Maya said...

Oooh, LOVE the color. Nicely done!

Maya said...

hmmm, no fence, just a stand alone gate? Interesting... btw, my word verification? bride.

Marley: No, she doesn't! I think the red gate will be my Sunday morning subject for posting someday next week. If you'd like a print, let me know. I just acquired a lovely color printer for Christmas and can do prints as large as 8x10.


Maya: Yep, just a stand-alone gate. I like the color, too.

Virginia said...

Actually I am thinking late afternoon sun with some nice shadows but that's just me being "Bossy the Cow". I told Wayne to try this and he promptly ignored me if I remember correctly. And Marley, you get cracking yourself!

VJ: Well, my plan for tomorrow morning was to walk in the neighborhood, but now I might be walking on the C&O Canal instead. What's my point in that? My point is, I could take pictures of the gate in the afternoon.

Hey Wayne! You should listen to Virginia. Just sayin'...

Wayne said...

JM. I listen to her constantly but most of it goes in one ear and out the other.

Wayne: I'm not touching that one.
