I react in different ways to fences. They sometimes remind me of prisons, or they seem to be devoted to hide and cut off from the rest of the world the people who have built them. But this one, a reproduction inspired by the trading post erected at the beginning of the 17th Century in Tadoussac, reassures me. Hastily built, without too much attention paid to its aesthetics, almost fragile and laughable in its desire to protect the people behind it, seems to serve more as a marker of territory.

The texture behind the jagged top softens and focuses this picture. It’s really lovely, like your thoughts about the fence.
that was thanks to a grey day 🙂
Sometimes that makes colors pop in a way they wouldn’t in sun.
Yes – a marker of territory
Makes me think in wabi-sabi. That Japanese thought of aesthetic that teaches we can find, and make, beauty in the imperfections. More than a fence it is a lovely screen that translates very well into your photography.
Thank you Francis . I like imperfections more and more
