Lens-Artists Challenge #132 – Striped & Checked – Part Two

[Categories: Photography, Photography 101 Forever]

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?”

CHECKS, with a few stripes. Nothing says checks and stripes like modern architecture. Lines, lines, lines.

“…lines on the mirror lines on her face
She pretended not to notice she was caught up in the race”
  —Life in the Fast Lane by The Eagles, written by Henley/Frey/Walsh

Joe Bob sez: ‘CHEQUE/CZECH/CHECK it out.’

The following are mostly from Chicago:






Finally, and there is always a finally in life, I’ve succumbed to an old COVID addiction. I’d say it’s CHECKERED!

Athabasca Falls Canyon. 500 pieces in 13″ x 19″. There ‘oughta be a law about minimum sizes. It was hard.

‘Dance like no one is watching!’

Stay safe, be well, be kind to one another.

  1. Great examples John.
    Your photos make me more determined to see Chicago. But when I checked recently, the City Council is requiring visitors from 45 of the 50 states quarantine when they come to town, not how I want to spend my visit.

  2. Love it, John! You certainly have checked out Chicago… And only America and Dubai are that excelling in high rise buildings. Of course I must love your COVID puzzle – clever checks! I made so many myself too. In fact I have framed two of them…never to forget 2020. Keep dancing!
