Walks Around Seattle Continued

small gate

Bicycle wheel gate

This gate delights me in many ways. While it may have been made by the homeowner, it shows clever use of repurposed materials. I appreciate the movement of the wheel and the large wing-nut used as a handle reminds me of a wind-up toy.

The groove in the path is a nice solution to assist with tracking. The bearings on the track are a nice touch also.

chain-link, pipe railing, fabricated railing, wood fence and cobblestone steps.

So many materials and methods

What catches my eye, after noticing the cobblestones, is the variety of materials used in such close proximity to each other. A pipe handrail, chain-link fence, a wood fence and a fabricated railing all live happily together at this person’s entryway.
