Saturday Photo Hunt = Lock


This week Tennesse Chick chose "LOCK" for the theme. So out I went to look for a lock. Surely we had some somewhere.

This is the way we lock the gate to the goat pen.

And this is the way we lock these big doors.


Well this is a differnt kind of lock but its not working right now.


Would you call this a lock on the chain link fence?


At last I found a lock here on this old barn. There's feed for the goats in here.


And here's another one. There's hay for the goats in here.


This gate is beside the road. Anyone can open this gate. Surely there is a lock on this gate.



I'll leave you guessing.

Ann,

Great shots of all kinds of locks. I love the wooden ones that you turn. We had those on a lot of stuff when I was young.

Brandon did a great job with the planter. He will be taking botany at high school and he is looking forward to it.

Have a wonderful weekend, my friend and I would bet there's a lock on the chain in the last photo.

Blessings,
Mary

What a great post. I love all these different ways of securing things, especially the wooden bar.

Happy weekend to you.

Hi Ann,

Ancient one - that's so cute!

Thanks for visiting my blog. Looks like you covered the lock theme well.

Lots of interesting locks! Your last one reminds me of our front gate. Louis used to want it closed and locked when we were away from home, but there was little more frightening to me than to have to get out of the car in the middle of a thunderstorm with lightening to unlock the front gate so I could get back in. Not only do we no longer close and lock it, but Louis took the whole gate down when our son needed to drive a semi onto the property. I'm grateful he has never put it back up.

Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for stopping by the creek!

Wonderful set for this week's theme. Love the first lock on the goat pen, very high tech. HA!

Pat said...

Any one can take a picture of a lock, but you took pictures of LOCKS! I think you have a really cool collection here, and some of them resemble what we have at my place. The wood turn kind was on my back garage door for the longest time!

Bettina said...

Great Choice, sooo many locks. So am i right when i say you live on a farm?! Or am i wrong?

Have a great Weekend and thanks visiting my page.

My Dad had a lot of wood fencing and stalls with "locks" like photo 1. I had some creative ideas, like hemlock, but no resources.

If you had a lock on all those things you would certainly need to carry around a lot of keys! Great series of shots! Mine is up here.

Love your good old fashioned country locks!

Sandi McBride said...

I wonder if the latch string would be considered a lock? Love this post...great job of locking it up!

I like your lock photo's.

Fabulous wooden locks. I love the grain in that timber, how beautiful it is.

Lew said...

I'm guessing that someone took the lock off the chain and forgot to put it back! On the farm you have to improvise sometimes and make something that just does the job.
