Thematic photographic - Repetitious

Carmi at the blog "Written, Inc." posts a photographic challenge each week at Thematic Photographic. This week, the theme is "Repetitious."

Carmi writes: "Life continues to be complex, so I'm compensating by selecting a really simple theme, repetitious, this week. As you can see from the photo... any simply repetitive scene will do."

I am fascinated by the new trend in cities to provide rental bikes to be picked up and dropped off as users choose. And I like the way they look, lined up against the curb. Whether it's in Paris, London, or New York, I like the idea.

So when we went to Mexico City this spring, I was thrilled to see the rental bikes there, too, in all their repetitive glory in Alameda Central Park - but with an extra feature - a papier mache calaca, or skeleton!

More bikes - in Paris!

A blurry shot in London, from the top of a bus on Bethnal Green Road.

A bike docking station in East London's Brick Lane with most of them checked out - showing how popular the bikes are!

Oh you have my idea! Great pics.

There are definitely more cyclists on the roads although we have no rental schemes where I live. You would hardly call our bus service repetitious - one every two hours..
However you shots work well as repetitions.

Aunt Snow, they're in Columbus, too.

I saw them and took a picture a few weeks ago. Did not think of it until now!
