NOT THE PEARLY GATES EITHER

This is another in the series on gates. This particular gate doesn't belong to Bill Gates although he could buy it with his spare change, should he so choose to.  I have no idea who lives within but they do have a nice gate. Somewhat unconventional, like nothing you might see at Versailles;more Miami Beach than Monte Carlo. I can see myself driving up, pushing a buzzer and driving in to one of my many garage spaces. How about you?

  1. an excellent capture of a gate. definitely Miami Beach in style. I dare you to buzz the and get an entry for a photo for your site. they might enjoy it or they might think that you are paparazzi and run you off. Thanks for your comments on my site. I am glad you liked the solar eclipse photos. BTW, if you like travel photos, we just put together a travel photos site at www.vivalavoyage.com. We have India photos posted and will put up new travel photos each Sunday. Happy blogging.

  2. Fascinating: a rising sun behind a bent palm, one could speculate about the meaning of this configuration...

  5. Oh that's so very very Ft. Lauderdale! Love it. South Floridians never shy away from "over the top" right? HA And how's the weather down there? Hotter than 40 hells??? How could I forget. It's about that hot here though.

  7. Perhaps it is the home of Charles Foster Kane.

  9. This looks very familiar...did you show a similar gate earlier? I think this property must belong to the Palm family!

  16. Gee, if this is somewhat unconventional I hesitate to ask about the real odd ones...

    Great catch!

  17. That's a fancy one for sure. I'm assuming that's a gate in Florida and not in Northern Michigan.

  18. Of course, you would have to park it next to my Corvette!
