Long-time followers of this here site thing might be aware of my love for these two awesome oak trees. They live at the edge of a yard on a side street behind the hospital, and I’ve taken many photos of them in the past.
I noticed a fence company staking out the place the other day, so I wasn’t surprised to see a fence going up when I went by yesterday. I was relieved to see it’s a wrought iron fence, which doesn’t detract from the view that much. I was afraid of a six-foot wooden fence blocking both trees. If they have to put a fence there, this isn’t so bad. Still, I’m going to miss the unadulterated view of the trees.
Guest photographer Terry Lindemann caught this cool shot of a bunch of hoar frost on a chain-link fence. I wish I’d thought to look for something like that when I was out shooting, as it makes a great pattern. Thanks, Terry!
Guest photographer Patrick took a picture of something I’d been meaning to investigate, but hadn’t succeeded. His description:
I was driving north on Third the other day and happened to look over at the bus loading area at the grade school. I saw the ribbons on the chain link fence, saw a break in the rain clouds behind them and just had to pull over for a photo. Seeing your photo of St. Boniface with that beautiful sky behind it reminded me this morning that I had sky photos in the can that needed to be looked at.
Nice shot, Patrick. Thanks!
Today’s photo is another from the spring snowfall we had last week. This sidewalk runs in front of a neighbor’s house… there was about three inches of snow on the ground at the time. I liked the snow on the tips of the fence boards.
This may or may not be the last snow photo. It depends on my mood tomorrow.
