GOOD FENCES

A little early for Good Fences today but.....

Hard to believe it has been a year since our trip to Europe.  These were taken in Oslo, Norway.

We passed this statue every day as our hotel was further along up the hill.  It was just across the road from the ski jump.


Median fencing somewhere in the City of Oslo.  There's a name I recognize on that building.


Just like in Paris......



 locks are starting to appear on bridges here (I read recently that all locks in Paris have been removed and banned due to structural damage to the bridge).


The gulls liked perching on its iron fence.


The large hedgerow makes a nice fence. One day we went to a sculpture park.  I remember it raining like the dickens but these young boys didn't mind....


but others weren't quite so sure.  No brolly you see.  I really coveted that rather pretty yellow and blue one.




Time to link with Good Fences. Thank you for hosting Theresa.

At least they spared you the big yellow arches :) thank you for sharing pics from your trip to Norway! I've always wanted to visit there and it's nice to see a bit of it through your eyes!

Those gulls look like they have been crossed with a vulture! Does it sort of make you pause when you are traveling like that and see signs that you see at home...not sure how to explain what I mean. I love that photo under the one with the McD's sign.

Michelle said...

The locks on a bridge thing has made its way here too. It's been awhile since I last photographed it.

Karen S. said...

Okay, this was like being on vacation (and saving a lot of money for me) fun fence photos all the way through. thank you!

Red said...

Great variety of fences in this post. My favorite it the hedge.

Linda said...

Absolutely gorgeous photos, Denise! :)

Adam said...

the locks reminds me of the bridge/fence in Paris. They had to take them all down because they were too much weight

Stephanie said...

You saw a lot of Oslo on your trip. Love being a chairside tourist through your images.

Great photos with fences from Norway!

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Ha ha - yes, that would come in handy! I saw a news report about the locks on the bridges in Paris and how destructive they are. Such a sweet tradition, though. Wonderful photos. xo Karen

Cloudia said...

Awesome fences! Why on earth were people putting locks on the fences? Strange. Love that first "sculpture/sign/fence" for the skiiers!

Christine said...

What great memories in those lovely photos! I am so intrigued by the locks on the fences - very cool! But I wonder why they do that?
Have a great day!

A nifty rain jacket. Yes, I read about the locks, Tons of them ruining bridge railings. Not a good idea and a waste of taxpayer dollars to remove them. Don't do it!

Ida said...

That's a neat statue in the first shot. As for #2 - Yep they are everywhere.
The locks on the fences are neat but I could see where it might be a problem when you get to many of them on the fences.
Very enjoyable post.

ladyfi said...

Lovely shots.

carolann said...

I enjoyed your blog. Thank you. And at the end. There you are. All smiles. Behind you a decorative wall. Perfect.

Vanessa Morgan said...

It's my dream to go to Norway one day. Lucky woman that you are :-)

Hope the weather is being kind to you.

Take Care

All the best Jan

Loved your fences, Denise. They are much better than the median :)
Thanks for posting a picture of a bicycle.
Have a Good One!

Kay said...

I think the locks can be a problem in some areas. I'm surprised that they've gotten so popular around the world.

Pauline W said...

I like the solid and serious fence you are standing in front of. Nice to see your smiling face, even in the rain.

Felicia said...

What fun -- I love foreign fences --- exactly the same as in the US, but different in small ways.
