A shot of a fence aroundWinnekenni Castle in Massachusetts. It was completed in 1875 and is open to the public for weddings, parties, etc. I've never actually been inside, but the grounds around it are beautiful with many paths in the woods to follow.

The fence is simple by design and yet it fits the scene perfectly. You have done well by balancing the fence with the castle. Good work.

Thanks, Cal. This is such an interesting building to photograph. The week of b&w photography in my class I immediately thought of this castle. Unfortunately, the entire week was gloomy. I need to go back sometime when the sun is shining. And, some time I need to go when they are open.

NH Mom,

It seems to be the bane of photogtaphers that we are always caught unawares of building closures etc.

I've had my share of going to places and fingind them closed.

Like Cal said the fence and building go together like a horse and carriage.

Thanks, Selvin. The weather is nice today and I'm almost tempted to go back down there.
