So here I am after the doctor visits. This weekend I had collected all my images for

Repeating Pattern.

I guess I was not the only one.

So when I double checked the theme and realized I was a week ahead of myself, I quick found some reflection shots and made a header. No time for a post then, though, as we had to be up early.

So here goes.

This first rearview mirror shot, if I recall, was a traffic slowdown near Salt Lake City on one of our Thanksgiving week trips to Arizona. I was not driving.
Here, I was driving, but probably stopped at the corner because there was little traffic and I could. I like that there are multiple reflections--in the mirror, in the side of the car itself.

 Hey, Tom I have a heron, too!
 I have another from this series that looks even more like an impressionist painting. This and the heron were taken on hikes around Blackberry Island in Leavenworth, WA.

The big red buses reflected in a window along with some more elegant buildings.
 I love this view of Westminster Cathedral in the windows across the square.
 I kind of think I like this one where it is broken up into different windows better, though.
Here's the two headed duck I used for the header.
 Reflections of the light features in the pond at Zoolights at the Phoenix Zoo.

Check out the headers of my friends. Their links are in my sidebar. Some of them are really awesome. No, most of them are really awesome.

Header Challenge -- Vertical

Vertical is Christine's choice for this week's theme for our Headbanger friends. I contemplated whether I could totally rearrange my blog so that I had a header along the side--a long tall image--maybe my favorite animal...
 ...who is definitely on the vertical.
Or someone climbing a vertical wall such as this one in Zion National Park.

...or the yet more well known El Capitan in Yosemite.
Do you see them--there just at and above the horizontal light streak?
All spectacular!

But since my daily horizon view of the vertical was made spectacular the other evening, I chose the hop poles as my header. It came too late to use for last week's theme of something red.
The other header challenge members can be found in my sidebar.

Red is the color of the headbanger's theme this week.

Red barns--

Red balloon--
 Red quilt--
 Red paddleboat in San Francisco Bay--
 Red tomatoes...

 ...make red ketchup--
Red hearts of God's love for Valentine Day--
I am not early, but at least I know what day it is this week. Check out the header choices of my headbanger challengers from the links on my sidebar.

Headbangers--Spare Time? What's that?

The headbanger theme this week is Spare Time.

I told Craver when he proposed this theme that since I am retired, there is no such thing as spare time. This week I proved either that or that my memory is totally gone.

If I had some spare time, this is what I would be doing.

The other headbangers have already posted, and I told them to go ahead and vote without me. Check out what they have done from the links on my sidebar.
