      This is a different post for me. It's a little out of my comfort zone.

       Some of the blogs I follow participate in the fence meme. Fences make for great photography opportunities. 

       However, my favorite fences are old with weathered posts. They are also barbed wire and if possible rusty barbed wire.

       Where I was brought up the fencing on farms was barbed wire. They required a lot of maintenance. Oh how I hated "fixing fence". We'd replace rotted posts, re staple wire, join broken wires. It was hard work.

      Yesterday afternoon I was out looking for fall scenes,birds and anything else I could see. While waiting I noticed the old fence posts. I had spent much time in this location before and was aware of the old posts. Most of the wire had been picked up.

      All of a sudden I said, "Yes. Old weathered posts to photograph!"

      So here are some photos of old weathered fence posts. There are lichens of many colors in some places. One post contains a face in the wood.
