Thematic Photographic 255–Repetitious.

Construction of condominiums by my house when I was a teenager.  Each floor identical to the one below it, workers performing the same tasks over and over again as it rises.

Street lights along 7th East, and the signal light repeating the same pattern indefinitely.  Green, yellow, red…

Seagulls at the pond in Liberty Park.

A bridge where the Shoreline Trail crosses the freeway, ironically 20 miles (30 km) from the nearest shore.  But 20,000 years ago this trail would have been right along the shore of the late, great Lake Bonneville.  Most of my city resides on the dry lakebed Bonneville left when it receded down to it’s current size, now known as The Great Sakt Lake. 

And finally, a scene that repeats itself every 4th of July as people show up early to get a good spot to watch the fireworks.

The sea gulls are at liberty to be as repetitious as the like.
Gland there were no vehicles to mask the pattern of the lights.

It's hard work being a traffic light. Same thing, over and over...and nobody appreciates you.

Nice shots, Max!

Great shot of the road with the lights, and a superb bridge shot too!

Max, bravo on all your photos- the lights are possibly my favorite- although I do love seagulls especially when they sing! Seriously!

Great selection of different repetitions, Max. it's hard to pick a favourite - I guess the traffic lights and the birds would be my top 2, but they're all good!
