This challenge was a tough one! It’s not often that I take pictures of the back of things so I really had to sift through the archives to find something appropriate.
The Pioneer Family Memorial in Elgin was sculpted by artist Trygve Rovelstad and is just as impressive from the back as it is from the front.
The back end of a ship’s cannon at the Tall Ships Festival at Navy Pier in Chicago.
On a recent trip to Utah we visited Park City and saw some really cool bikes there.
I don’t know why I took this particular shot of a couple sitting up at the bar in a restaurant where we stopped to have lunch during a trip to Wisconsin, but I finally get to use it. Hooray!

My thanks to Sue Llewellyn for giving me the ideal opportunity to share these pictures of rust (something I might not otherwise have done) in response to her Word A Week Photograph Challenge on A Word In Your Ear at http://suellewellyn2011.wordpress.com/2014/08/28/a-word-a-week-photograph-challenge-rust/

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/ is Lines. No problem. I must have hundreds of these in the files. I might even have a second go at this one! Thanks Sue!
The lines on this frog show up rather nicely. Luckily I caught him while he was crossing the path otherwise I might never have seen him.
Lines of boxcars waiting on the tracks just off Blue Island Avenue in Chicago.
A thirteen-lined ground squirrel, a regular visitor to our garden some years ago.
Mooring lines on a ship at the Tall Ships Festival at Navy Pier in Chicago.
Rather an obvious one, I know, but I thought this was a good opportunity to make use of the picture.
