Gate


Southwestern style gate on a yellow wall.  I wonder what was above the gate that was removed leaving that unpainted spot.

Nice gate but it doesn't really seem to meld with a house that has a shingle roof. Plus it seems a little close to the house with that overhang hanging out over the wall of the gate.

It's a sweet little gate. I'll take it...shingle roof and all. Looks like it might be a lovely place.

I don't think so, but what if they ran out of paint and decided that instead of buying another can, they would leave an unpainted portion above the gate because people like you would think that there used to be something there, rather than that they were too cheap to buy more paint.

I just love this, including what I think is an Ocotillo.

That would drive me crazy. Paint!

Looks like something turquoise needs to go there--but that's just me. I love is shot!

Gates like this can dress up an otherwise ordinary looking entrance. I like it and I like the color too.

It is a charming little place, but that unpainted spot would drive me crazy every day. If it were mine, it would have been fixed in the first ten minutes after the old thing was removed. Whenever I paint, I leave the extra paint labeled in the basement for exactly this kind of thing. I am thinking of flying out to Phoenix to fix it.

Jack you're hilarious!! Love the colour of the wall it seems so right for Arizona, I think it was a number thing that they've removed and they're just going to put something a little more special up there to replace it! and may I say WOW Sharon, the building in your last post is quite spectacular!

The fence and gate certainly have a Spanish flavor...I wonder not only about the unpainted spot but the small window on the right of the gate...Maybe this is owned by one of the Mafia...and that is a window to check on visitors?

Ah, see - all these conjectures that would not have been there if the spot had been repainted.

I love these gates to interior courtyards commonly found in the southwest. Perhaps that space is being prepped for something special. If Jack is heading out to fix, have him stop in KC, I have things to be fixed.

What ever it is I like the idea of a courtyard and since Jack is fixing it i won't worry about it!

Such an unusual shade of yellow. Sunshine bright.
