The Border between Hence and Thence – Fence and Border Photos

Boundary, n. In political geography, an imaginary line between two nations, separating the imaginary rights of one from the imaginary rights of another.
– Ambrose Bierce, The Devil’s Dictionary –

One time there was a picket fence
with space to gaze from hence to thence.

Don’t ever take a fence down until you know why it was put up.

I like that time is marked by each sunrise and sunset whether or not you actually see it.

    Your Ambrose Bierce quote is highly amusing, and very apt. Lovely post and challenge answer.


    • Thanks Charlie. When I found the quotation about hence and thence, I wandered off down that trail for quite a while. Words are so fascinating.


    • Thanks! I have photographed the reflection of that fence a number of times, and it is constantly changing. What a shape shifter!


    • Thanks – though not fun images like your faces in nature. I will have to start looking for face images – it should be a WordPress photo challenge!
