Theme Day: Fences

The first of the month is our City Daily Photo theme day, and this time it's "fences."

I thought I'd get creative and run by the pawn shop, but ours is a venerated business in a historic building (not exactly a fence). Perhaps I'd locate some skilled athletes and photograph them with their epees. Nevermind. I got caught up in the Halloween rush.

So here's a fence. It's even a little spooky.

I got so caught up in the rush, in fact, that I forgot Halloween was Zen Monday and here it is Tuesday and we're having theme day. So tomorrow will be a historic Zen Wednesday, the second one in PDP history. (The first was in June of last year.)

City Daily Photo is a worldwide family of bloggers like me who love to photograph their hometowns. As of today, we're 1433 strong. Our newest member is MyHelsinkiCity, Finland. Click here to see how other CDP bloggers have interpreted today's theme.

Love the sunlight in this one. I'd say that fence is doing its job very well.

Dina said...

Ah good Petrea, always letting the light shine through.

So symbolic!

Petrea Burchard said...

Good morning everyone, thank you for your comments. Happy theme day!

Yes, Julie, it's a good fence.

Dina, you are good to me.

Valladolid, welcome!

Ciel, it's nice to see you here.

Well I"m all out of sorts. I forgot theme day and you just reminded me a week ago!!!

I like the sun popping through the slats girl.

Virginia, I was just about to head over to your blog to see how you'd shamed me with something clever.

And will Romeo climb the fence to get to his sun, rising in the East as he glimpses her between the slats?

Jilly said...

Love that you've combined a fence with the spookiness of Halloween. Clever.

Well done, Petrea.

paul said...

A great take on the theme! Fences like that invite peeking, could you resist?

Irina said...

The fences of such design make me feel hopeless. But the sun rising returns the hope back.

looks like the sun is burning a hole in the fence

dive said...

What a wonderfully optimistic photo, Petrea. You can't fence in sunshine.

Petrea Burchard said...

Thank you all for your visits! I do like theme day, it seems to bring us out to see each other.

Bellis said...

Wow, this ancient fence only allows the sun to shine through at sunrise on All Hallow's Day. Hopefully not onto a sacrificial stone.

Oh wait, it's not Zen Wednesday yet.

Ms M said...

Love your photo -- the sun shining through, no matter the obstacle. We can all use the buoyancy of light.

if only I were a dp-er. I'd have proudly displayed the redwood fence Mr V and I labored over.

Funny, I haven't kept up with the theme day this month. Turns out by sheer coincidence I did a couple of consecutive posts on fences just last week. I'm psychic. I enjoyed yours.

Petrea Burchard said...

Ms. M and others, you've interpreted the photo so nicely. I like how we can all have our own ideas about it.

PA, you can display that fence anyway.

Steve, you had a premonition or two.
