Going South ~ Good Fences

Happy Good Fences Day Friends!

Here we are in the last week of January.

Can you believe how the weeks flew by?

Well on with the year right?

As you may know,
I visited Waco, Texas
"The Silo's and Magnolia Market" last week for a long weekend trip.

We had a wonderful time and I have lots of pics to share soon.

Along the way going south to Waco,
I used the opportunity to spot some great areas with fences.
I hope to share those in the weeks ahead.

On this beautiful blue sky day during our trip,
I shot some great bridge fence photos
over the Brazos River.

Looks like a longhorn to the right~~~

Such a pretty blue sky day!

Yes it was a longhorn in bronze displayed on a cattle drive.

This cowboy driving the longhorns around the river.

Life size and beautiful!

Like you're riding along~

You can almost hear the thunder of  cattle as they run by.

The patina on the longhorns is gorgeous!

This cattle driver shot against the blue sky, is my favorite.

We had a great time and I will share more soon.
Especially the Magnolia Market.
The Silos.
The Magnolia House.
Shops that the Fixer Upper duo visit.
much more!!

See you soon.

Thanks for stopping by
as I join the fun

Have a fence shot? 
come join the fun!!

Hi Celestina, what pretty photos and love those statues. Looking forward to see more about your trip.
I'm so annoyed with the GFC! I used to have google + with a lot of followers and got ride of it because it started getting too weird. Now I'm sorry I did that and have start all over again with that. I know I shouldn't worry about the number of followers but we work so hard on our blogs. Oh well. Hope you enjoy the end of the week and weekend. Take care and hugs. Julie xo

Good Morning, Celestina! My it is good to come for a visit here, and your photo shots are amazing! Those cowboys are so life like, especially that last one as he rides hard with his hat off, love it! I agree with you in that you can almost feel the thunder of the cattle moving along. Just awesome!
That bridge is gorgeous with all its detail.

Beautiful photos and those statues are amazing!

Conniecrafter said...

That is a cool bridge, I love when they put neat architecture in the bridges. Those are some cool statues too, neat that they have a scene with them. Look forward to more post of your trip!

Row homes and Cobblestones said...

The Bridge is a substantial attention getter - but OMGosh the gorgeous Bronze. The Longhorn, the cattle driver, the cowboy the horses - impressive statuary. Life size must be amazing in person against a bright blue sky. Delightful and stunning photography, love this post.

Fabulous bridge fence. - Loving those sculpture shots. We have something similar in a town about an hour from where I live. I tried to get pictures but had my camera on the wrong setting. Oh well that means I just need to make another trip back.

Red Rose Alley said...

Celestina, these bronze statues are amazing. I really like the one of the Native American riding his horse. The cattle really DO look real. Yes, I lost some more of my followers due to this blogger thing. It doesn't seem quite fair, does it?

Have a nice Thursday afternoon, Celestina.

love, ~Sheri

I am amazed at the statues that line the river. So beautiful and detailed to perfection. That would be one place that I would like to see, but your photos are wonderful and it was like I was there. I can't wait until you post on the rest of Waco. I am a big fan of Magnolia Farms! I hope you got to meet them.
Yes, January just slipped through our fingers. I am so looking forward to spring this year, I can taste it already. Here in the north, I found signs of spring already, so maybe it will be early. In the 50s here for a few days, can't wait, and I am getting out of here for a bit to walk around and plan for the coming season.
