Wordless Wednesday

From Answers.com: On Wednesdays all over the internet, bloggers post a photograph with no words to explain it on their blog. Hence the ‘wordless’ title. The idea is that the photo itself says so much that it doesn’t need any description.  (This picture will be part of my Texas notecards over at Snail Mail Notes.)

My father raised cattle.  He built his own fences, just like this barbed wire fence with a rustic fencepost.  When I was taking a driving photography trip this spring and saw this fence, I felt at home.

  7. That photo is fantastic. I can’t seem to keep my photos “wordless”. I bet they could be, but I can’t. I know it totally defeats the purpose, but I like the stories that go with them! =)

  31. Hey, there! Thanks for finding me among the Wordless Wednesday masses. I absolutely love the photo — the contrast between the wildflowers, wood and barbed wire is acute. (Can a contrast be acute? I guess so.) Anyhoo, glad to meet another person who adds words to Wordless Wednesday posts. My only rationale is that I add far fewer words than usual.

  32. love the flower back ground and focused on the post.

  33. Love the photo. It makes me miss Texas! I’m following you via Marvelous Mommy’s blog (the weight loss thingy).

  34. Love that this pic looks part photo and part painting! Just beautiful! I wish I had half your talent!!
