Cast iron gate

There will be a few of these bits of cast iron as I love the different styles that were available. This little house had this quite different iron on the gate and surround. It was in one of the back streets of Glenelg. I love back streets, whenever I have been in Japan one of my greatest delights was to wander the back streets, so much more to see and people to talk to, even if you dont speak the language.
I wonder if we will ever get back to Japan. The way this drought is going I dont know if we will even get a house to live in if this season is as bad as the last.
I cant believe how dry it is and all we get are strong to gale force winds and no rain to follow.

Verandah decorations and fences and gates often have lovely curling lines. Part of this blogging is certainly about becoming more observant and noticing interesting shapes in ordinary places. Good work. There is just too much to draw out there!

OH, this is a lovely sketch, Penny. Nice work on the wrought iron. I agree, the drought is no fun at all ~
