Photo Challenge #161 ~ Show Your Stripes {09/21/2012}

Sorry for being late with this - I had the photos taken, but had a head-cold and wasn't online much. I still have another couple of photos I took earlier in the summer - just have to find them!
Show your stripes!! I loved the weathered look on the black and white painted structure at the level crossing and ended up with some close-ups too. The other two were both taken at work.
Stripes feature heavily in my wardrobe - maybe I should be looking there for more inspiration. And there are plenty of stripes in nature - tabby cats, tigers, ring-tailed lemurs :D. What stripes can you find?

Photo Challenge Rules:

~ Have FUN with this! There are no right or wrong photos.
~ Take as many pics as you want, share the few you like best.

Sabrina, was it you who gave me a cold? I didn't realize it could travel on-line!
I love the graphic look of your stripe photos
Pansy, good to see you back here. I am so jealous! I love hot air balloons! Great stripes on these two! where did you see these?

Oh Pansy, perfect!! The one in the background is amazing - it almost looks dimensional, like a honeycomb shape. I am envious - I've only ever once seen hot air balloons.

I've always loved hot air balloons. It was on my bucket list of things to do when I met that special guy! However, my sister-in-law was smarter than me and figured out I would never meet 'that special guy' and gave me a couple of tickets to go on a ride. It was awesome! I would do it again any time, if it didn't cost so much!
Sabrina, I have found stripes everywhere! My photos: #1. Awning of a window at the medical center I took my SIL to this morning. #2. A corn silo at the farm where I bought some sweet corn today. It's almost the end of the season and I love sweet corn! There are crossways stripes and also up and down stripes. #3. My new to me sweater. I love the colours on it. Bought it at the used clothing store for $4.99

:D, I was surprised we hadn't already had stripes. Well spotted in the clinic, and I love your sweater.
The silo is a cool shot too - I don't think we have them like that here!

Sheesh, have I really been thinking about stripes for a challenge as long as this! I looked through May, June and July, and then March and April. And found it at last in February... He's not as stripy as I remembered, but I definitely took this photo with an eye to using stripes, so here he is...

Cute, Sabrina!

A couple more "stripes" photos.
I took the one of the worker painting out the graffiti a couple of weeks ago, and the one of the shadow stripes in the fence this morning.
I like the second graffiti photo best, but it takes the first one to put it in context.
