My Friday's Fence Post

First up, this one taken from Dawes Point location, looking back to Circular Quay (Sydney Harbour).


This quaint sandstone-construction with it's ornate copper roofing, stands with an open doorway to one side;  appears had once been a morse-code communications site.




...judging by this plaque set in the pathway at the foot of.



...a little fence on the corner building here


and lastly, a charming fence with gate, and then the beginning of a neighbouring fence

I love the ornate squares of the fence in the first shot and what a unique little stone tower.
LOVE the last green and red fence -an inviting entryway!

Hello, Carole M..

  The coldest winter will be melted by your warm heart.
  The works gently accept all visitors.

  I praise your creative art sense.
  The prayer for all peace.
  
  Have a good weekend.
From Japan, ruma ❃

Beautiful shots, Carole! I really like the third one - you combined the two structures nicely!

Liz said...

Great fences, Carole, in one of my favourite cities to visit!

I like seeing the harbour on an overcast day rather than in blazing sunlight [which always scares me].
Your gate collection is building up nicely. All such pretty ones.
BTW, how do you pronounce your first name: to rhyme with 'carol' or 'parole'? I always say people's names in my head when I visit somewhere.

Carole M. said...

Hannah, yes my name rhymes with 'carol' even though mine has the added 'e'

Beth said...

i do like the quaint little gate at the end, but agree with brian, too, that the fence dome and bridge photo was nicely done!

Hi Carole, I'm loving the fences. Also the little sandstone building. Interesting that it was used for Morse
code.
Have a great weekend.

Wonderful shots of the fences. I like the 3rd photo and the last one very much.

Dianne said...

Ah! Delightful captures Carole ... My favourite being the quaint little green fence.

Nancy Reinke said...

They're all wonderful, but I'm partial to the quaint fence at the end. It says "welcome". Thanks for sharing.

Jan Castle said...

Your fences reminds me of the 'Cheery Lynn Designs' gate and fence dies....must recreate with them the look you captured - LOL!
Paper Hugs,
Jan

Laura said...

As always, your fence photos are beautiful and so much fun to see! Thanks Carole!

Debbie said...

they are all so pretty but to me, that gate is so welcoming!!

I have a very similar fence image to your lead photo today. I am not sure about that little structure down near Pier One with the copper roof. It has only been placed there in the last little while (maybe 20 years). It was certainly NOT there prior to the bridge being constructed or when the area was a security wharf enclosed area. I read that sign too, and wonder why it is there. It does not actually SAY that the hut was used for Morse Code. Very quizzical.

Julie G. said...

Beautiful fence photographs, Carole! If I had to select a favorite, it would be the last photograph of the charming painted fence. Very inviting! A joy to visit your wonderful blog!

Carole M. said...

thanks to Julie for your information re the "morse code structure" down at Dawes Point. It did seem a little odd that there was no reference material online. I'd written to local council but to date no response; worth persuing......

Beautiful fences in your shots.
