Here is another shot from Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom. This is a wall/fence around a play area for small children in "Tune Town". The red benches are a bonus. Actually, I would have preferred they were not there. I was after the fence and this was the best angle.

Scanned 35mm slide.

WDW has some of the best fences, gates and walls! I like the red benches and my butt was plopped in one of those very benches just2 weeks ago.

I think the benches color add balance to the photo. Although, it would have been nice if they'd been a little farther away from the wall.

Nice crisp, clear colors. I've never been to WDW, but having lived within 10 miles of Disneyland asa kid, we had our share of visits every time someone came to town. Of course, back then, the colors weren't as vibrant!

I wonder if they painted the stones before (easier) or after (saves paint) constructing the wall.

I suspect they were painted after for two reasons. If they were painted before, the grout may not have adhered as well. Second, I suspect they are repainted every year when the park is closed for its annual maintenance.
