This week Cee challenges photographers to take or make black and white pictures of fences. It just so happens, that thanks to Cee’s former challenges, I love photographing fences.
Out of 2,100+ photos that answered to the category of fences on my phone, I picked three that I thought would make good black and white photos.
The first one was obviously taken in Arizona, not so obviously in the Coconino National Forest on April 18, 2017. Cameras are slightly misleading, but oh so helpful in trying to find information. This picture was not taken in the heart of the Coconino National Forest, but you’re headed that way when you arrive at the Son Silver West Art Gallery.
The date tells me I was in Sedona with my husband. Sedona is one of those unique cities that lies in two counties, Coconino and Yavapai.
We love to shop when we travel – not necessarily to buy, but to see what’s there. Along Highway 179 on the way to the National Forest is an amazing tourist shop where you can buy any number of decorative items, mostly yard art.
The next photo from Son Silver West would also work well for Cee’s Fun Foto – Catching People Unaware or last week’s B & W Challenge Candid Shots. Maybe she was imitating the iconic Kokopelli dancer above. She needs a flute.
A symbol of fertility, joy, feast, and long life, he (Kokopelli) is also a minstrel, a spirit of music, a storyteller, a rainmaker, a healer, a teacher, a joker-magician, a seducer. Kokopelli possesses the wisdom of age.Harpo/Harris

If you have been to Universal City in Orlando, FL, then this fence should look familiar to you. Being the shallow person I am, I liked the curly cues.
The last fence is in Woodlake. Don’t ask me why I only took part of the fence. I think I was trying to keep my shadow out of the picture. Doesn’t this fence have lovely shadows?
So that I don’t bore you with the 2,100 more pictures I took over the years, I’ll stop processing fences and half-fences and wish you all the very best New Year.
What are your favorite challenges, hobby bloggers? As always, I’m thankful to Cee for her consistency in hosting challenges. I love them all.
If you know someone who hosts a photo or writing challenge and wants an interview about their challenge on my blog, Always Write, please contact me.
Our next Always Write Challenge, Writer’s Quotes Wednesdays Writing Challenge, #WQWWC, will be hosted by one of my first blogging friends when I started in 2012, Autumn Jade on her blog, A Day in the Brine, with a topic of New Beginnings.
