Waiting for takeoff

There's a certain appeal to pictures of many of the same thing. Sometimes you can see patterns in them. Or sometimes they all look identical. Or just similar enough to attract the eye. Or different enough to prompt discussion. Or something.

Which is my somewhat stilted way of introducing this week's new theme, Multiples. We so often take pictures like this, but don't give them much additional thought. Now, I'm hoping we will. Why? Well, I can't really offer much of an explanation beyond the usual, "because". Because photography, to me, is often about grabbing photos simply because they appeal to the little voices inside our heads that tell us a certain kind of scene would be neat to have in pixels.

In the end, it need not be more complex than that.

Your turn: Take a picture that suggests or evokes the "multiple" theme. What does that mean? Whatever you want it to mean. Post it to your blog, then leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Once you're done, visit other participants to share in the fun. Repeat as often as you wish throughout the week, and feel free to trick a friend into it bring a long a friend. The goal is enjoyment and exploration, and I can't wait to see what you have in store for this one. If this is your first time through, please click here for more info on how Thematic works.

I had to look for a bit to find something that fit. Hey, a rhyme...

As many photos as I take, I don't do a lot of the repetitive pattern sort of photo.

I'd rather begin with a horse! Kind of. But Carmi, I plan on taking some kind of multiple on purpose! Before the week is over!

Here's mine

The hard part for this theme was not finding multiples, but deciding what multiples to share. You know, I try to be and "original".
