The Iron Gate, Yorktown, Virginia



This garden gate in Yorktown opens to an inviting shaded sitting area as long as you don't mind the graveyard on the other side of the fence.

A very peaceful place where I'd happily sit and think for a while.

I really wonder why we put plaster on brick walls, the bare bricks like these really so much more character !

Very nice! Gates are like doors and windows, always interesting and full of possibilities. Jim

That's a beautiful old brick wall and gate. I have never seen rounded bricks at the top like that.

Wonderful picture. And yes, graveyards are a great mean to measure time and life, many times holding much an adventure.

Please have a good Friday you all.

a tombstone amidst a bench, where you can read a book or just enjoy the view.
