This week, Wrought Iron, by JarieLyn. There is wrought iron everywhere in Arizona. So much, in fact, that I almost don't see it anymore.

Gates & fences are usually wrought iron.

Mailbox stands.

There is a lot more of this than I like to see. Some feel the need for this due to illegals coming through, but it's pretty common to see this in the older, not so great part of town.

Although, this security door is a wonderful thing in the evening during the summer. When the air cools and creates a nice breeze in in the house.

Here are two favorites from around my house.

To check out more Friday Photo Shootouts, go here! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

I love that chair. how good would it look in MY yard.

Loved your household items. I also loved that first shot--the way you captured the shadow of the fence, made it pleasingly geometric.

Oh I like that chair. I had not thought of wrought iron as a security thing, but you're right. It is. That's what it does. It isn't just a frilly French decorative thing is it?

Great shots.

Ann said...

that first gate looks like leading to the house of the rich and famous. Is it yours?

Rebecca said...

That chair is just delightful! Maybe not so comfortable but pretty to look at.

I am jealous you have all the sunshine! I just now got internet back, we had storms that blew out electricity and cable.

I keep saying this, but I guess I love everything! I love all the designs as an artist, and I never drive by anything without noticing it, as some take things for granted, and get used to surroundings! I even notice when someone has moved something in their yard. Maybe I should go work for a CSI team, lol

Have a beautiful day girl!
