Theme Day: Fences

In my travels around the city of Al Ain, I have made some interesting discoveries and observations. Most of which are not always evident to first-time visitors and even to some residents. One of which is the fences at downtown Al Ain. I found out that most of the major streets have fences featuring artworks varying from an Arabic teapot, an incense burner, a date palm tree, flowers, fans, to a perfume dispenser, a mosque or a fort.

Photos shown above were taken a month ago at Al Jahili District, the place where Al Ain Palace Museum is erected. The fences that divide the road according to the direction of travel has an artwork featuring a fort. Photo frames were created using an application at bighugelabs.com.

November's City Daily Photo Community theme day is fences. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants. For more photos of fences, click here.

  5. Ang sarap palaging dumalaw dito sa bahay mo misalyn :) gaganda ng mga photos. Smile :) God Bless.

  6. When I lived at Al Ain I too was impressed with the fences. Not only the street, cast iron fences, but the huge fences people have around their houses and villas. Many of them would have been worth much more than a quality Australian house. I always thought they would make an excellent study in architecture and I photographed dozens of them while there.
