Barbed Wire Fence

We don't see many of this type of barbed wire fence around here anymore.  I suppose it's because farms have grown larger it isn't necessary to fence off their property.  It is still used where farmers have cows and horses, but most of them have wooden fences.







Linking to Fridays Fences #53

Thanks for stopping and have a great weekend.
I won't be around much this weekend so I'll catch up with you next week.

Until next time
Barb

Love that wide open space!
We have a lot of old fences like this. These days they use some kind of tape like fencing that I deplore. :)
I'd much rather see the rustic wood and barbed wire.

Wire fences are some of my favorites and the first shot is gorgeous!

We still have barbed wire fencing around our property that my dad and grandfather put up back in the fifties. In some places it has grown into the trees..
Have a great weekend Barb!

Beautiful photos Barb. I love the wide open space of field and sky and the rusty fence. The close up of the post and roll of barbed wire is great!

Judy said...

I love that first capture, with the harvested corn field!!!
I wonder why they used two or three new iron posts to shore up the wooden one...

Jan n Jer said...

Great composition on both shots Barb...

I love the 'roll' of barbed wire on the ground where the farmer left off fencing.

Marie said...

Love it! Looks like the fence I'll be posting soon that we saw on a drive out in the desert!

Having grown up in the Midwest, these old fences with the barbed wire were common sights. I remember my Dad parting the wires so I could carefully go to the other side. And him showing me how to part the wires without stabbing myself which would result in a doctors visit for a tetnus shot if I were over due.

Brought back lots of memories!

Agree with Carletta--that wide first shot is just grand--wide open spaces with just the sky and that lone fence line running across the land. This could be a good tourism photo!

Mary said...

That makes a notice of barbs. huh.

Tammy said...

We have some of these too, and like yours, most are falling down. They sure do make an interesting photo.

Yes, I did see your Morman Row barns. I love that you captured the whole scene, including all the photographers. It was really fun seeing it through your eyes. I know these are some of the most photographed barns, but every photo is a bit different.

You definitely know how to photograph wire fencing! I love seeing some of the old fencing like this around Calgary. A lot of people would consider it trash, but to me it becomes a part of the scenery.
