Photohunt - STRIPES

Visitors to America's west will probably recognize this landmark. Sci Fi movie fans will probably recognize it. Devil's Tower has the distinction of having been named America's very first national landmark in 1906. This picture doesn't truly represent its size, unless you take a very close look at those mature pine trees at its base. But at 1267 feet it's pretty awesome in person.

I love it for its STRIPES

The city of Lisbon paves many of their pracas, sidewalks, and even streets in four inch square pieces of stone. They are especially partial to black and white patterns.

Here is the wavy STRIPED pattern of one of the many beautiful pracas we enjoyed in the city.

Great shots!

Have you started on those pancakes yet? *smile*

ann:

Wow on the wavy stripes ... loved the other photo too!

The wavy stripes on the pracas look very entertaining.

Palma:

Perfect stripes! Now maybe some striped pancakes for breakfast?

I love these photos! Devil's Tower is amazing and the perspective of your photo is very cool. And those pracas are just lovely!

Anna:

Beautiful shots for stripes! :)

Mine is up too!
Have a great weekend :)

Eden:

Wow, That Devils Tower looks awesome indeed! Both photos are great for the theme.

I agree with the previous comments - both are great stripes. One built by nature and one built by man.

Great catch! Love the contrast between both photos: the straight stripes of the Devil's Tower and the wavy stripes of the pracas.

Happy weekend!

Great photos. I love Devil's Tower. It's been quite a while since I've been there.

I think yours are the most interesting stripes I'ne seen so far!!!!

My stripes are posted too.

Nice shots, Deborah.

srp:

Oh, yes.. Close Encounters movie fame. Wonderful stripes all around. I wonder how hard it is to maintain those striped bricks!
My stripes are here.

I have not heard of Devil's Tower. Your photo makes me want to visit. Not a big sci fi person. Will have to google to find out more...

Love love love the wavy stripes.

Great photos and great take on the theme this week :)

Kay:

Very very nice. I love the rocks and how they formed the stripes. Fab!

I'm up.
