Per A-C: “We find Striped and Checked everywhere around us, but maybe this is so common a pattern that we don’t notice it if we don’t go looking for it?”
I love her opening quote:
Once you can accept the universe as matter expanding into nothing that is something, wearing stripes with plaid comes easy. – Albert Einstein

I entered ’stripe’ and ‘check’ in the search function of my Apple Photo library and came up with… NOTHING. So much for A.I. – artificial intelligence. ‘Strip’, not stripe, came up with some good lookin’ steaks! How did those get there?! 🙂
I have some ideas for ‘checked’, but I’ll save those for a possible Part 2. Here are some stripes in nature, in photos I took over the last few days near Breckenridge, CO.
Nothing says vertical stripes, in my opinion, like TREES! This shot was taken with my iPhone:
On the iPhone X the sky came out a rich, dark blue, with nearly-gold aspen trees.
It was a very bright, sunny day.

Compare the previous to my ZS-200 camera:
This was in Std mode, as my favored Vivid mode was tending toward blue snow (bumping exposure in Vivid made the sky wash out). Camera was on P-Program, Std, ISO 125, F3.5, S/S 1000, Exp +-0. It looks like it looked!
Vertical stripes of trees follow, in the same area (Colorado Trail, Kenosha Pass, Hwy 285):
The snow looks a bit blue. Camera was on P-Program, Vivid mode this time, ISO 125, F4.0, S/S 800, Exp +1 1/3.
Stripes of shadow cross ‘the road less traveled’. (Boreas Pass Road, outside Breckenridge, CO.)
Same road, a little sunnier on the way back down:
Lastly, are those STRIPES on the mechanical man? Hmm. But is it ART?! Beauty… in the eye of… etc. 🙂
Remember, when all else fails: ‘Dance like no one is watching!’
Stay safe, be well, be kind to one another.
