I think this should be an easy one. I get the feeling that the majority of photographers are drawn to dividing lines. Windows are common ones, where what's on the other side is visible or implied but unreachable - much like a photo itself.
So I chose Fences and/or Borders for this MSA. I probably have taken a thousand pictures of fences.

And then there are borders, which are ideologically like fences.

And I'm sure there are more subtle variations of lines "you shall not cross", for whatever reason. And variations where a fence may be less prominent but still important to the composition or significance of the photo.

All of these photos were Old, by the way, shot with a Leica IIIa or IIIb.

Have fun!

Oh My, a twisted shifter..
The fence got totally captured and enclosed by the tree, and it,
... instead, ... now,
.. cannot escape its containment.

What goes around, comes around. 🤩

There's a walnut tree that's in the process of doing that just outside my door. It's not very big, yet, but it's growing directly on the fence line. I had a big maple tree that was doing it, but had to cut it down.

Yes, the standard Linhof Technica 4X5 body with filmholder. In front at the lensplate a black tinplate with a hole an a lens hood backwards to reduce the distance. In the hole the lenshood + pinhole plate is backward glued with glue and black tape. I've made some marks on the body as fiewfinder. Simple and free. Later I bought a set of pinhole plates somewhere on Ebay.

An old one from 2020 - Leeuwarden / The Netherlands :
A lime tree was planted in the middle of the Raadhuisplein Leeuwarden in 1898, which was provided with a spacious circular wrought-iron fence. On the pedestal of the gate, is the text:
In Memory of the Accession to the Throne of H.M. Queen Wilhelmina
