A Good Fence Just for Looks


Near Napa, California

While out looking for earthquake damage I thought this might make for a GOOD FENCE entry.

It serves no purpose other than to look nice.

If you came here from Theresa's Good Fences and are interested in seeing some effects of the 6.0 August 24 earthquake near Napa, Ca., here are some to look at from earlier posts to my blog.
The most dramatic one is here.
These other two show cracks in the earth here and here.

It's lucky there's a gate there otherwise how would you get in????

Yes it looks like a fence just for the show, it leads not to a road or so.

Karen said...

Sometimes you just need a frivolous fence, er gate, er whatever.

Latane Barton said...

It certainly makes a statement, even if it is non-functional.

Roan said...

A work of art! The earthquake damage looks scary!

EG CameraGirl said...

Curious! It does make me wonder what that fence is all about.

TexWisGirl said...

that's kinda funny, actually! if it was just a wee bit longer, it might look better. :) thanks, john!

There's no way to get past that gate! Obviously!

Strange fence.

I really do not see the purpose of it as a gate. I too think it should go across more.

Very ornate..I like the columns and the design in the center. Such a beautiful blue sky!

Lynne said...

For sure . . . that gate/fence is very nice to look at!

LV said...

Apparently the owners of the area wanted just an eye catcher for their place. It is a nice fence tho.

Andy said...

It makes for a good conversation piece. I like how you aligned the building in the background with it.

Extravagant gate for not much fence. Beautiful blue sky.

Well, everything must have a beginning! Lovely as it is.

Ida said...

This is quite an ornate piece of fencing but it does make you wonder why they didn't make it longer. I'd like to know what the building is used for behind it.

Art is where you find it. Good find. Thanks for sharing.

RedPat said...

It is pretty and maybe it provides some sense of boundary.

Nice ornamental fence. I looked at your earthquake pics. That's pretty scary, but it could have been much worse, I suppose.

Pamela Gordon said...

It certainly is a beautiful fence and it looks like it's serving it's purpose. Is there a garden behind it? Thanks for your visit.

Debbie said...

hehehe, well it's very good at looking good!! Is the gate really necessary?!?!

Felicia said...

this is a great gate/fence.

Paula said...

Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting. The gate you posted is interesting and something to keep people guessing I guess.

Cloudia said...

Show off gate?

John, I think they just put up a fence and gate so you would have a picture for your Good Fences! Thanks for topping by my blog...I'll come back for another visit.

If the low hedge was taller on either side, it would look much better. It's a beautiful gate never the less.

Rose said...

It is pretty, but just sort of strange.

I'm a Midwesterner, what do I know of fences with no purpose??

The earthquake shots are quite interesting.
