I suppose it was inevitable. I do seem to have quite a few train lines in the photo files so here are some for Becky’s Square Lines Challenge. The first set are all in Chicago. The second set includes lines from Bartlett, Milwaukee, Glenwood Springs in Colorado and Galena, Illinois.
Some fancy lines at the Biltmore Estate in North Carolina for Becky’s Square Lines Challenge.
Here are a few lines at the Milwaukee Art Museum for Becky’s Square Lines Challenge.
All kinds of straight and curvy lines at the colorful Chinese Lantern Festival in the Missouri Botanical Garden, St. Louis, for Becky’s Lines and Squares Challenge.
Here are a few lines from Temple Square, Salt Lake City in Utah, for Becky’s Square Lines Challenge.
Here are a few lines for Becky’s Square Lines Challenge that I found in Green Bay, Wisconsin. These images were captured at the Green Bay Botanical Garden, The National Railroad Museum (note the line of geese taking a tour), Lambeau Field (home of the Green Bay Packers) and Heritage Hill State Park.
For today’s Square Lines Challenge I’d like to share these images from Ashland, Wisconsin. The Veterans Mural, which took two years to complete, was dedicated in the summer of 2005. These portraits on Vaughn Avenue and Main Street honor those men and women from Ashland who served in the armed forces during various wars and conflicts. The artists referred to photos of the actual people in order to make the mural as accurate as possible.
Becky has returned with a new subject for her Square Photo Challenge which this month is Lines. The season is almost over for the Chicago Cubs and sadly Wrigley Field left field line will not feature in any of this year’s playoff games. The numbers on the score line just didn’t add up to enough wins to take the boys in blue through to a repeat of the 2016 series. Not only that, but they are now looking for a new manager. After taking the team to World Series victory three years ago, Joe Maddon will not be returning for the 2020 season. Hard lines!
Until I saw the subject for this week’s Photo Challenge, I never realized how frequently the word line is used in describing different situations, actions or things. For instance; toeing the line, dropping someone a line, the thin blue line, crossing the line, behind enemy lines, fall into line, hook line & sinker, forgetting your lines, along party lines and so many more, but for now this is where I draw the line.

I couldn’t resist having another go at Sue’s Word A Week Challenge on A Word In Your Ear at http://suellewellyn2011.wordpress.com/2013/11/19/a-word-a-week-challenge-lines/ It seems like our whole life is made up of lines of one kind or another; waiting in line, learning lines (if you’re an actor), toeing the line, writing lines (our punishment in school), genetic lines, and so on.
