this or that thursday

Today I'm sharing photos of a beautiful old fence that I found at a cemetery. It happens to be the same place I found the butterflies from last week.




And one more of the lovely butterflies that I found fluttering near the fence...

  2. Both fences are very beautiful and intricate. I love the curves and moss of the top two photos and love the cross-hatching on the third combined with the arches. The lantana is a bright, fresh companion for the aged fence.

  3. Those fences are awesome Deb! I was in paris a few years ago at an amazing cemetery and got some great fences but alas, they are all paper photos. I love your processing and depth of field on these though! Really lovely shots! Hope you are having a great week. Jeanne

  19. I love that first shot! I wish it was more rusty and redish against that green grass but that's something that's not in our control. Wouldn't it be awesome if photographers could change the world to an artistic playground. :)

  29. There's sooo much more I have to learn about photography... as they say, I haven't even scratched the surface, yet, but one thing I'm eager to learn is how to take a photo where only part of the subject is in focus like this... is that in the taking of the photo or is it edited that way?

    Your butterfly image is so beautiful... I love the delicate look & background bokeh =)

    happy week

    P.S. My husband and I were supposed to visit the mountains for our anniversary this week. But we're both sick and we missed the peak of the leaves because of it. Bummer. You'll have to take photos of the leaves for me at your mountain place. Please?
