The Gates at Sotterly


Gates fascinate me!  I don't know when the fascination started but I can remember taking road trips when I was a kid and when we would pass one, I always wondered about it.  If it was closed, I wondered why.  What or who were the owners of the gate keeping out (or in).  If it was open, I wondered where the road led to.  Most always the gate was across a dirt or gravel road that would take you to who knows where or what. 
On Mother's Day, we spent the afternoon at Sotterly Plantation, where I wanted to work on my photography skills.  These are the pictures I took of just three of the gates at Sotterly!

  1. I really like the top one!! Have always wanted something like that, but just don't have any place on my yard that it would look like it fit in.

  8. The first reminds me of something Jane Austen. The last remind me of something you tell your husband and he misses the point. Haha - Honey I'd like a fence along there with a nice gate. It'll keep the kids in the yard . Hahahahaha. : D

    Happy Weekend !
