Mini-Challenge #192 - Repeat, Repeat

Hi Folks.
The theme for Mini-Challenge #192 is: Repeat
Repetition is an oft' employed compositional device - that I happen to like - and I think it makes for interesting, sometimes abstract, and sometimes unexpected images.

Please use your imaginations and be as creative as you wish... repetitions of shape, color, objects, ideas etc., etc., are all qualified.
This is a pretty wide-open concept with the hope of catching your interest - as always, Good Luck!

Time period for this Mini will be: Today, August 21 thru Friday, September 5 - 9:00 pm PST (California) ~ just a bit over 2 weeks.

Cheers! Cheers!

************************************************** *******************************************
Usual Stuff:

1. Have fun sharing and seeing what others share!
2. The host supplies a topic and YOU POST 1-3 IMAGES. The host judges the winners (1st, 2nd and 3rd) and is not eligible to enter. The 1st place winner becomes the next host, chooses the next topic and becomes the next judge.
3. Any photo you’ve taken is eligible, regardless of when taken or camera used.
4. Any amount of post-processing is allowed. However, it is helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo.
5. You may comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you some critique or criticism, just ask within your post.
6. The winner has up to three days (72 hours) to begin a new mini-challenge, or the honor goes to the #2 finisher and so forth.

1. Enter 1-3 photos and put them in a single post.
2. Either embed your image in the thread or, if you must, supply a link to it. Keep in mind, however, most people don't want to click to open photos hosted elsewhere (i.e. on your website).
3. Also try and resize your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll (~800 pixels on the longest side works best.)
4. Give each image you enter a title.
5. Enjoy discussion with members about their images, don't let this just be an entry thread!
6. When quoting a post, change the IMG urls to a 200x200 size picture so it is clear your post is feedback and not another entry. (See here for help).
7. Don't be hesitant; share 'em and enter!

Mini-Challenge pointers:
1. Upon winning a mini-challenge round, your first step is coming up with a new theme and starting a new thread using the same format as others have used.
2. Make sure to notify the admin of this thread to update the main thread links with your entry thread.
3. Feel free to watch the thread as it grows or wait to the end time and look at all the entries all at once.
4. After the time/date has passed, then officially close the thread with a single post notifying everyone of the fact.
5. After you're finished judging, start a new thread (again using the prior formats) and post your Winner and runners-up. It is important to have runners up in case the winner does not show within the 72-hour window.
6. PM the winner with this info above and let them know they have 72 hours to set up the next mini-challenge.
7. If the winner does not show/start the next mini-challenge after 72 hours, notify the next runner-up and post a message on the Winner thread of the fact.
8. Remember, if you're the Winner, you run the next mini challenge!

    Eric, this is a great challenge. I love pattern and repeats in images. There are some awesome entries thus far, but I would like to just play along. Please do not consider mine in your judging, this is just for fun. Thanks!

    1. Containers on a barge going through the Panama Canal:

    2. Z gas at Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala

    3. This is one of the forts in San Juan, Puerto Rico, I just do not remember which one

    Love the photos so far.

    I'm afraid I cannot compete because of timings and travel commitments so please do not consider these as judging entries, but simply as (possibly) adding interest...

    1) Satellite Dish - Singapore


    2) Power Grid - Kent UK


    3) Stoa of Attalos - Athens


    Despite not being entries, constructive advice or critisism feedback always welcome - or perhaps just as an HM!
