Barrier to entry
Chain link fence
Lyle Street, London, ON, December 11, 2006

Fences like this are everywhere, especially in run-down areas where business owners and homeowners alike try, usually unsuccessfully, to keep the riff-raff out. The building inside this compound was dead silent in the middle of the day, likely another victim of time. The fence stood silently, keeping watch over an uncertain future. I thought that was rather poignant, so I focused on the perimeter instead of the building itself.
Your turn: What comes to mind when you come across a fenced-in, dead-silent old building?
