The Elmwood Cemetery sits in a blighted area on the outskirts of downtown K.C., in an area that is usually rather un-hip and less than photo-worthy.

Modern homes and aesthetics seem to be all clean line and sleek. And although this fence shares neither of those traits, it should still be seen on strictly inspirational grounds.

The swirls feel as if you have fallen into a fairy tale as your eyes can't help but follow the lines and circles around.

It was nice to see something that was made to last in an area that things come and go with the seasons.

A piece of this, would be a great find at a salvage store and used for a headboard or room divider... or even in your own garden if you happen to have the space.
