Friday Shoot Out- Wrought Iron

This weeks theme was chosen by JarieLyn- Wrought Iron

Wrought Iron is one of my favorite architectural aspects of buildings, homes, and especially historical homes and bridges, and not my little ruse of getting you over here was funny right? Can you picture me in irons?










Do not please, I am a good girl!

The mixture of stone and wrought iron, even if it is not 'real' wrought iron as they made it long ago...















A closer look...Imagine Victorian dressed people walking along this bridge as they take in the sunshine along the water way, and walking through the park at the top...









The many farms that surround us have iron fencing, and I like to go visit the local producers of cheese and meats...I get to say hello the animals!










City boy keeps his distance from the farm animals, he is gazing as they call for attention. More fences shots...

Well looks like this is going to be short- An unusual thing for me, but I cannot find my wrought iron photos in my archives, so Thank You  for joining me for this weeks theme, and go check out the other

I love wrought iron, especially the really intricate designs you sometimes see.

"City Boy" better watch out. Those wild,man-eating goats will jump the fence and attack him if he stares at them too long. LOL!
Very beautiful staircase. They don't make much like that anymore.

nice find on that stairway. the first 4 days in Houston we had fog, smog and heavy rains. today was beautiful as only can be here. cool breeze, hot sunshine and pastel blue sky.

Great selection. The cityboy shot is a hoot!

Rebecca said...

Wow, that stonework and railings. That a lot of railing work. Go city boy...I can't stand the country smells so I keep my distance for that reason. :)

My daughter lives in an area of Columbus known as the German Village, with brick houses, brick streets, brick sidewalks and wrought iron everywhere.

Loved this post!

I love the iron fences with spikes at the top...like the Addams Family had!
