Thematic Photographic 24 - Rows


Waiting at the Golden Griddle
London, ON, September 2008 [Click to enlarge]


I'm hoping to keep things simple for this week's Thematic Photographic theme, rows. Basically, anything that lines up is fair game. As ever, I know you'll come up with neat, inspiring and thought provoking interpretations of this theme. And as far as I'm concerned, I'm apparently still working through my morose-themed monochrome phase. Thanks for putting up with it!

Your turn: Thematic Photographic is a little photo challenge that I like to hold every week. It's strictly a fun exercise that lets us explore the world of photography a little and hopefully stretch our skills in the process. It's about getting outside of our comfort zone and hopefully bringing home - and sharing - some neat results. I very much hope you take a shot this week. Here's how it works:
  • Every Wednesday evening, at precisely 7 o'clock Eastern, I post a new Thematic Photographic entry.
  • Each entry has a unique theme. This week's is...rows.
  • You post a similarly themed image over on your blog.
  • You paste a link to your entry in a comment here.
  • If you've already posted something that fits (on a blog, Facebook, MySpace, wherever) simply post the link to the existing entry.
  • You may post as many photos or links as you wish. For the next week, I'll be supporting this theme with a related picture/posting each day. I encourage you to do the same. This is all about sharing, so feel free to share to your heart's content!
  • Please share this link with friends, too, and encourage them to join in. The more, the merrier.
  • And please accept my thanks for your enthusiasm. Your participation has made TP a true highlight for me each and every week.
One more thing: Many thanks to my wife for suggesting this week's theme. She's a blogger in her own right, and is the reason I wake up every day and pick up my pen and camera.

Great shot, Carmi. It makes me want to tiptoe and whisper.

If I had a camera that was even marginally good, I would give this a shot. However, my camera is crap, and my mind is mush. However, I'll be back!

buenos dias! Mine is up at http://sealaura.blogspot.com/

I like this black and white phase. Everytime I look at your latest shots, they give me a lot to think about. And lately they seem to calm me down. For me they eoke a quiet feeling.

Lynda said...

Love this photo!

Ken said...

I have a row here.

Mimi said...

I actually did one... You can find my interpretations here.

Beverly said...

When I first looked at the photo, I thought it was a church or synagogue, but it's booths in a restaurant, right?

Mine is up.

Maureen Hayes said...

Challenging theme, Carmi, but I found rows when I least expected to. Come see The View From My Pillow.

I'm happy about this week's theme as I am a very linear thinker - Thanks, Carmi!

I was out doing stuff today and brought my camera along. It's nice to have fresh shots just for Thematic Photographic. I was too lazy to upload the big pictures. Just the details. (That's an attempt at humor, believe it or not.)

I've really enjoyed all the different kinds of rows that you've shown us this week Carmi.

I finally came up with a couple of pictures that fit the theme (which I found a difficult one).

My "Rows".
