FSO - Lines and stripes

When you look around lines and stripes - this week's topic - are everywhere.  I'm sure creative folk will find them in unexpected places.  The first thing that sprang to my mind was the railway line, probably because it is close by and a regular feature in my life.  I see it often and occasionally see a goods train rolling through.  There is no passenger service.  Just a single track to carry both north and south bound trains.


The rest of my photos were all taken last weekend when I was in Auckland visiting my daughters.  On Saturday we watched my grandson, Michael, play soccer, in a striped jersey - yay!  Here the teams form two lines to shake hands after the game.  That's Michael, the tallest in the team, in the middle of the shot.  Don't you love the little dog that joined in?  He'd watched the game sitting on the sideline, never once going near the field but when the game was over he scampered out to join his master.  Cute!


These are taken at a West Auckland playground and park:







That was easier than I expected!  To see how others interpreted this topic, just click here.

  3. I like how you captured the park and playground area from lots of different angles,and that last shot is SO great! You had to hunker down to get that one, didn't you?
    I miss going to my kids' soccer games, and your picture brought back some memories; I always appreciated the tradition of shaking hands at the end--and especially here, with a cute little dog joining in.

  12. That was easier than I expected! You mean doing this post or crawling under the tunnel? Sometimes I have to take toys kept under the stairs, and it is very hard.
