Beautiful Fences of France






On my trips to France my trusty Panasonic Lumix camera
is always with me.
Prior to blogging most of the photos I took
involved people, family mainly.

How things have changed!
Now I take more photos of fences, gates, doors and windows
than I do of people!





I see photo ops everywhere I go...
I'm always lagging behind
because I've stopped to photograph
another rose covered fence or two!
Does that happen to you?






I couldn't walk past this fence, now could I?
especially as I'm so fond of roses....
and just look at the lovely old shutters in the background
another favourite subject of mine.
You would be surprised at the different
styles of shutters there are!
Hmm... I think I feel another post developing!!!


I'm joining Theresa for Good Fences
and
Tricia for Floral Friday

Enjoy your weekend 
thank you so much for your visits!

Take care and
be kind to one another

Merci à bientôt



Shane

  4. These were wonderful. I love ornate fences and roses too. Yes, I sometimes "annoy" my family when I have the camera with me and stop to take pictures.

  5. Europe must be fond of iron gates and fences for there were many in Ireland which surprised me. Both of these fences are nice and roses peeking through are a delight to see.

  7. Yes, I'm always lagging behind and then running to catch up because I am always taking photos. Ha! Funny, it is so true ... when we took photos with our cameras in the past, we were always taking pictures of people. Now I take pictures of everything else. Best wishes, Tammy

  10. Dearest Shane,
    Well, for that you have to be in France to see the combination of beautiful fences that also show roses...
    Lovely and dreamy photos and yes, their shutters and old front doors are a study I always admired when in France.
    Enjoy your weekend.
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  11. Yes, since blogging I'm taking photos more than ever and not of friends and family.......haha. You made lovely pictures, the rose around the fence looks gorgeous.

  14. I laughed at your post as I am also a shutter bug as well and since starting our travel blog, I take photos of sometimes the 'strangest' things, like piles of luggage or street signs or toiletries because I 'know' I might need them someday to illustrate a post. Beautiful fences!!

  15. The shutters are fantastic ,dear Shane, I wish it was common here...but it isen`t !!
    Beautiful fences, too, the one with the roses a wonderful sight, and the other worth a castle !!
    Wishing you a lovely weekend, remember to relax dear.
    Hugs,Dorthe

  16. Lovely indeed! I especially love the second one, but those ROSES too! Such gorgeous fence adornment!

  17. I would be keeping you company because I always seem to be the straggler in a group. One more photo, just one more, and another, and another... Yes, I see pictures everywhere too! LOL. These metal fences are lovely. I could have spent days and days in Charleston, taking photos of metal fences. Oh, and I consider shutters as adornments for windows! Bring them on...

  18. All that practice taking photos of fences has served you in good stead. These are just wonderful -- oh, how I'd love to hop into any single one of those photos right now!

  19. Dear Shane,

    Yes, this always happens to me too - since blogging I want to take photos of everything I see.
    Love the pretty roses and the gorgeous fences.
    Hope you have a lovely weekend
    hugs
    Carolyn

  20. I guess that's the bane of blogging isn't it? We see a post or photo everywhere we go! I am a lagger behind as well. Your fences are wonderful and I see why you took the photos!

  21. Lovely contrast against the fence and the bright blooms.

    Have a good weekend.

    Blessings,
    Aida

  22. I'd be definitely stopping to take photos of the roses too (and taking even more time so that I could smell them too!).

  23. Love all your photos of fences & roses, they go together in France. In England during the war most of the old metal fencing was taken out to make bullets. I guess France kept theirs. I'm just like you always taking photos of this & that thinking ahead for my blog. I've even got Mr France doing the same thing, and saying 'thought you might like this photo for your blog'

  24. I can see why you take so many photos of flowers and fences! look at the surrounds - just beautiful.

  25. Hello sweet Shane! Your fences are simply lovely and the roses are especially beautiful! I do love seeing roses and wish I could smell their sweet perfume right now :)

    Thank you for sharing! Love and hugs!

  26. I would absolutely stop to photograph that beautiful rose cover e fence too. Wonderful post!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh, I have to laugh, Shane. I'm always trailing behind taking photos, too. I tell everyone "I'll catch up" but they usually stop and wait for me. That's an eye catching fence - of course you had to stop and take its photo.

  28. It happens to me too.

    Never again think of a stroll as just a stroll, but also an opportunity to bring others with me - by taking the pictures I'll share later and that I took while thinking of them.

    I was in love with the iron works in Paris. I kept taking pictures of balconies and details. Paris is an old lady who really ages gracefully thanks to those lasting and beautiful details.

    Thank you for sharing,
    Teresa


    PS - and yes, I always stay behind... first years they (the family) moaned about it but now they ask me "where do you have the pictures of that trip?" and enjoy returning to places they were unaware in their brink walking...

  29. Beautiful photos, Shane. I try to take shots of architectural details and flowers, but I am not very good at it. Yours are always quite smashing! xx

  30. beautiful photos and i will have to remember your blog hop!!

  31. Beautiful photos from France. I use to be at the front of the line and now with camera in hand I also lag behind. Lagging behind just means we are savoring each little memory and image.

  32. I adore these kinds of shots. It's funny, because I used to take a lot more of these, but now it's mostly of my kiddos. :)

  33. Wonderful photos of France..I bet you miss those little girls of yours. Happy Momday Shane.
