The Portico vine

By mrswoolybill
The Portico Walk in Wallington's West Wood has two pergolas covered with metal vines. I've been meaning to photograph them for ages, this time I finally got round to it.
A couple more uploads will appear next week.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Nicely captured and the background makes the image.

There's a very nice b&w in there, just waiting to be released.

My upload is also showing the skills of an artistic blacksmith.

It would be far better had they covered the pergolas with real vines, then one could enjoy nibbling the grapes while one sat there in the shade provided by the vines. And, of course, perhaps enjoying a glass of the finished product...Wink

I shall enable mods so that you can have a go - it didn't work for me because of the amount of contrast in the background.
Thanks folks. Nearly the weekend.

I do like the colour version and it catches the form but also the patina on the metal. Lovely Moira.

Thanks folks, and thanks Alan for the mod - it works for me too, it must be the added happy thoughts.
Lovely photo and I like the b&w mod too. With the broad white frame it looks quite attractive and reminds me of art nouveau.. I am looking forward to more of the series.. Smile

Alan has a knack for lovely in black and white. But then this is nice to start with.
