In response to Ann-Christine’s topic of #10: Fences, this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, let me take you on a quick trip to Volkening Heritage Farm at Spring Valley Nature Center in Schaumburg.
Here, fences are not so much an intrusion as a picturesque part of the overall scene. Many of them are weathered and some used only as a temporary measure but all of them seem to blend in with their surroundings.
Naturally, the animals on the farm play a large part in many of the fence images in my Spring Valley photo files.
And flowers play an important role in the pictures too, the fences sometimes appearing to be merely an adjunct to their cheerful color.
Whatever purpose the fences serve, they are nearly always a welcome addition to any image of Volkening Heritage Farm.
