A fascinating gate

Virtually all of my photography features human beings, but while attending a family reunion this past weekend, I came across this gate.  It intrigued me due to the fact that it’s made entirely from hardware odds and ends: bolts, nuts, washers, nails, and rods; with the occasional tool thrown in for good measure.  I can’t imagine how long it must have taken to weld all of these small pieces into a workable whole.  And the gate is not small.  I captured only a small segment of it in order to show its detail.
