October Theme - Lines

It has been ages since I have joined a theme day. It made me realise how many times I have been away this year on the first of the month!!!!

I immediately thought of coconut trees when I knew Lines was the theme for this month.

Their trunks are amazing.


......and so are their leaves.

I have posted the tree trunks before but thought they could do with another airing as they fit the theme so well. I have changed them to B & W to highlight their line.

Not too dangerous when it's "coconuts time" to go for a walk underneath?
Beautiful picture!

It makes an interesting picture.

I was expecting somebody to come up with a line at the doctor's office, or a line at the peep show, or a line at the voting booth. I saw all kinds of lines and been in all of them and how quick we forget.

an amazing set of lines - well done.

You can never show too many coconut trees (smile). The leaves are a special treat.

USelaine said...

That's a beautiful idea for the theme. Well done. 8^)

Terrific set of lines. Converting to black and white was the perfect choice. I like your saying that you were giving your picture another airing...good post Jules.

Hi Rabaul!
I think this is my first visit to your blog, and I'm glad I foud it. You have a wonderful collection of photographs.

These lines created by those coconut trees are just wonderful and a great choice for this month's CDPB theme. Mine's just up to.

Greetings,
Eki

neat! we get a tropical twofer. Nice lines, Jules.

Jules said...

therese - not a good idea to sit or park your car under one. The noise of them hitting the ground with a huge thud is one we hear all the time here!!!

Abe - you are much more creative than I am - what a clever idea!!!

hyde & denton - hi guys good to hear from you

eki - hi and welcome to rabaul!!

Hi Elaine, Sue & knoxville girl - thanks for dropping by

JM said...

Great photos for October theme! The 1st one is so very cool! Good work indeed.

Katie said...

Love these photos!! Such a great way to highlight the beautiful lines in your part of the world. As for Paris, if I see a line outside a bakery I'll join in as I'm sure that whatever they're selling must be good!

David said...

Jules, Love your approach to lines. Very creative and just the right subjects for your Daily Photo.

Aaaaah thanks Jules for treating us to the best lines the south pacific can offer. How wonderfully exotic. Loved it!

I love both of these photos. Everything about them. Shape, texture and one in B&W the other in colour. Superb!

lynn said...

Great rep. Jules!

ancient one said...

Very nice lines..

Chuck Pefley said...

Love those trunks ... great choreography by mother nature!

Ann said...

Great interpretation, from the thumbnail I couldn't tell they were tree trunks, they looked more like tree roots.

Marcel said...

I think both shots are fabulous and I’m glad you joined in on Theme Day.

I only joined in on the theme by accident as I never pay any attention to until the theme is posted. I guess you can say I’ve never been one to conform to rules or join in with others.
