A Photo a Week Challenge: Gates and Fences

This is the road that leads to our family cabin. It is in a gated area (but don’t let that fool you into ideas of a grand, luxury home; it is as cabin-esque as a cabin can be) in the Uinta National Forest. I spent a lot of time during my childhood swinging on this gate. Gates and fences come in all types, shapes, and sizes. This one is rather heavy (but well hung to be easy to swing open and closed). I know that we occasionally get a notification that someone has tried to drive through it, but it usually ends poorly for the vehicle and driver.


Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
  4. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

  1. Looks like a delightful place to have a cabin, Nancy. We have one in Wyoming that I feel the same way about. It’s such a special place and fortunately, my husband and our two daughters feel the same way about it.

    I’ll be joining on Sunday, as I happen to have a gate for the One Word Sunday Challenge. 😉
