Cee’s Black& White Photo Challenge…..Fences, Gates and some Wooden Doors


Here is a mixed bag of doors and gates that we have stumbled across over the past year or so.  I guess they fit the bill for this weeks Black & White Challenge.

Gates that lead ‘somewhere’…..


Substantial ‘Keep Safe’ Doors or….


Ones in need of attention, once you have decided which to open!

Then again any old door can be recycled when needs must….

CEE Black & White Photo Challenge – Made of Wood


Still Standing…..

Despite being battered by North Sea Gales and other North East Scotland’s weather hazards, this old fishermen’s shed is still standing and very much still in use.  Marvellous the durability of wood.

Just an idea for this weeks Cees B&W Photo Challenge on the nominated topic of ‘Made in Wood’….. so here is one more nautical ‘wooden’ image of an old Trawler.

High and dry

But I cannot miss the opportunity to show this image ones again…
