Lens-Artists Photo Challenge 132: Stripes and Plaids

Linked to Lens-Artists Photo Challenge here

My stripes seem to be ‘lines’ and I can’t find any plaids, but here we go.

    1. Thank you. It was a difficult photo to take as despite the fact that the poles stretch for nearly 5 miles, the amount of tourists there makes it difficult to get that clean shot.

      1. Thanks, Marie, so did I. I took masses of pictures when I was there and one of these days I’ll go through them and discard the ones that are really bad. Japan was one of the few countries through which I rushed (I’m a slow traveller) as I was with two much younger male friends so I shall have to get back there, just to re-do the places i loved. We covered Tokyo, Hakone, Kyoto, Hiroshima, and Takayama, with off-shoots to other places in 3 weeks, but it was exhausting despite the comfortable trains and ease of travel.

    1. Actually they are rather like the tiles on churches in the Burgundy area. However, Budapest is worth seeing but you’ve got a lovely spot in the Algarve and it could be difficult to tear yourself away.

    1. I thought I had blogged about these prayer poles but I’ve just checked and no, I haven’t. I shall do so one of these days. Meantime, I hope you get to see them one day.

  1. A big wow for the prayer poles Mari, I’d not seen them before. Five MILES???? Amazing. As for the Budapest rooftop, I actually was one of the tourists that went to the top. The roof is even more amazing when you’re standing on it and the view of the city is amazing from up there.

  3. I never went to the top of that one and I can’t remember why. Maybe just rooftopped-out! I guess it was an amazing sight to see Budapest laid out in front of you from that height.
