A wooden fence

From the back-garden of a restaurant in Bergen, Norway.



This Monochrome concept came from Aileni at The Monochrome Maniacs

Wood grain - always rewarding.

Wooden fence, wooden barn, wooden house, wooden shoes and wooden heart, :)

Nice old-fashion black and white photography is back!

I am here

Mycket snyggt Rune!

Vackra linjer och texturer och perfekt i s/v!

Ha en fin vecka :)

Wenche said...

Ser ut som eit solid rekkverk det der. Litt vanskeleg å klatre på, men veldig greit å støtte seg til:) Ønsker deg ein flott sommar!

Very nice shot!

Babooshka said...

Simple and effective could also me my garden. Which is weird.

Carver said...

The fence makes a very appealing monochrome shot.

Robin said...

Wonderful. To me, textures are the best part of monochrome.

I visited Bergen briefly many years ago, what a lovely town.

So simple - so effective . . .

Dina ... UK said...

there is nothing better than natural wood grain...
Lovely.

Marka said...

I'm kinda curious to see what's behind the fence.

Torsdag said...

Always a good thing to present something people can't look behind.
Nice lines in the shot.

Bim said...

Very nice lines...I wonder what exactly the shiny things on the other side are.

Abe Lincoln said...

It looks like rough treated lumber. I am surprised that one staple per board is enough.

PERBS said...

What I like best are the grains going in more than one direction, such as a fence would demonstrate.The photo was neat when I saw the first slat but to see the perpendicular boards was a magnificent idea for a shot. Just beautiful!

Like your style and the way you capture ordinary things in Norway :-)

Enkelt men veldig fint bilde, likte linjene, ble litt nysgjerrig på hva det blanke bak der er :)

Starnitesky said...

Good depth of field, I like the grain of the wood.

Rune: Beautiful capture for certain.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

I like the look of wood in monochrome: the grain and the edges stand out so well.

James said...

I like the texture and the lines. Very nice.

Clueless in Boston said...

Wood grain is a perfect subject for monochromes. Very well done.

Regina said...

Very good. Looks great!

AVCr8teur said...

Nice patterns and textures. I see splinters in the making.

Leslie: said...

I can almost smell that wood! :D

Daryl said...

Less is often more, as in this instance where simplicity rules

Cheffie-Mom said...

Very neat photo!

Tom said...

If there's wood about I'm sure to be about Rune.. this picture as me thinking of the number of fences I've built, stained and painted. I can almost smell it as well...

Fint ustsnitt som gjør seg bra i sort/hvitt.
Bak der har det nok blitt drukket noen utepils den siste tiden, ja...
Med det været vi har hatt i det siste, så hører det med.

Jeg er veldig glad for regnet vi fikk i dag.
Det er tørt i hagen min, og ellers også.

Takk for oppmuntringen hos meg i dag. Det er godt å få litt trøst.
I dag har jeg funnet ut at man kan pusse vinduer stående på en fot. Så lenge man får servert bøtte og utstyr, så går det bra dèt. ;)

Vi har lest en del om ulike kameramodeller de siste dagene.
Det blir nok et 500 D, sannsynligvis.
Gleder meg,
og når jeg er på beina igjen skal det knipses - MYE!
All slags motiver.
Noen av dine favoritter også sikkert.
Man skal verne om sine favoritter, også på fotofronten. ;)

Abe Lincoln said...

After you mentioned it, the wood does look thin. Something like that they used to use for orange crates but a little thicker.

Thank you very much for visiting my Abe Lincoln Blogs and for the comment you left me there.

Virker så enkelt, men å få et godt bilde utav motivet synes ikke jeg er så enkelt ihvertfall. Men du har klart det med bravur;-)

Kitty said...

It's one of those awkward fences you can't crawl under - I think I've had my hand scratched by ones like this, trying to reach things on the other side :)

Barbara Martin said...

This portion of fence reminded me of the summer I had to paint the backyard fence in a similar pattern but seven feet high. It took me a whole week. Funny how I recall how hot and sunny it was, and about this time of year too.

What a great picture.

Dick said...

Great picture, I like the texture.
The funny thing is that I have the same fence in my garden. Exactly the same!!!!!!!!!!!
