Friday Shootout -- Patterns

I'm late this morning and don't really have time to figure out some humorous patternish thing.  Well, I really am late...but  I also can't find my muse...

BAGMAN:  "I'm right over here, Mark!!  Open your eyes!  Let's have a Friday Shootout Party."

Didn't I just say that, in addition to having no good ideas, I also didn't have time.

BAGMAN:  "You give up too easy.   Besides, you have some photographs."

But I hate to just put them in without some kind of zippy caption. But Barclay is due in anytime and Karen left me a short list about watering the plants and I don't have time to...

BAGMAN:  "AAAAARRRRRGH!!!!!""

BUTLER:  "Calm down, Baggie, old chap.  Don't you see what Mark is doing?  He is cleverly exploiting his 'Pattern' of self-depreciation and creative whining."

Oh.  Was that what I was doing?   Maybe that is a pattern.  I do tend to whine and apologise a lot.  So I guess I'll shut up and leave Bagman sitting with a confused expression on his face and post the pictures. 




















Boy, am I tired now!

BAGMAN:  "Hooray!  At least you put in one pun!"

BUTLER:  "Tread lightly, Baggie.  Mark isn't really with it this morning."

Bagman giggles at the fact that strait-laced Butler actually made a pun himself.  I decide to push the post button and go look at other people's posts while I wait for Barclay to show up.

  2. You did it again. Got me laughing which is good. I have no idea what the 6th photo is, unless it is some type of mollusk up close. Love the gate and flowers. I guess we won't hear from you while you have company.LOL

  8. Your photos are always so amazing. I'm having a hard time decipering the third from the last photo. Is it a pig? Somehow I don't think so. It's funny whatever it is.

    Believe it or not my faves are the second and fourth photos. I'm really not into modern architecture but I really like your photo.

  9. I love that fourth photo. I'd probably look up and not even see the pattern there. It's a fabulous shot. A wonderful selection altogether.

    But did you water the plants?

  10. You sure put together a nice bunch of photos for being in a rush. I am drawn to the one that shows the pattern in the sand, made by a little plant: so graceful and perfect.

  13. fantastic images! the fourth is my fav. and what is the second one? I can't figure what it is? got my stumped.

  14. The second one I bet is sand, with a small twig or plant whipped back and forth by the wind creating a wonderful natural half-circle pattern. I've seen it many times before! Nice shots!
