Photohunters: Vertical

This Thursday I went to the NC Cancer Hospital at UNC for my standard melanoma follow-up. Everything was fine and I had my camera so I took some vertical shots for the photohunters theme.
Photobucket
The shot above is the ground floor garden at the Cancer Hospital and you can see vertical metal in between the windows. The shot below is the second floor garden just off the surgical oncology clinic and in that shot you get a closer view of the vertical window dividers.
Photobucket
After my appointment I went to the NC Botanical garden in search of more vertical photo ops. The bench below has a back rest made of vertical wooden boards.
Photobucket
The trees lining the path to the Paul Green cabin which is in the mountain habitat portion of the garden are vertical.
Photobucket
In the shot below you can see a lattice trellis made of vertical and horizontal wood on the right side of the picture. Later in the growing season there will be plants growing on the lattice, or there has been other times I've been to the garden.
Photobucket
In the last shot there is a gate made of vertical and slanted metal with bird shapes on top. The gate blocks off the staff part of the garden from the visitors.
Photobucket
For more vertical photohunters, you can visit the home of the hunt where participants post their links beginning on Saturday mornings.

what a peaceful place the oncology center appears to be.
And the gardens, what a wonderful place to commune with our maker!

Hi Carver, some nice verticals you found in Chapel Hill. Glad your check-up was good. And I love the pollen art in the post below (so glad we got some rain to wash some of it away last night).

Have a good weekend.

Nice shots Carver... you never thought of having those photos vertically placed instead of horinzontal right? :P

I hope that "everything was fine" refers to you as well as the weather. And yes, good shots and nice choices of photos once again. :)

Glad your check up was good! What a beautiful hospital garden! I also love visiting botanical gardens and this one looks so beautiful.

I can tell you that my Redbud has arrived from Holland, but I haven´t planted it yet due to the cold nights we still have here. It has to wait in my orangerie. It is two meter high and a solitair. I´m so happy!
I wish you a great weekend!

Very vertical indeed and I like your “angle” on the vertical theme.

It looks a nice new hospital. We got a brand new hospital locally a couple of years ago. I love the botanical gardens
