Sunday Stills - Lines

Today's Sunday Stills Challenge is Lines. I had a couple of ideas early on in the week, and I think I'll use them, along with a last minute idea that came to me this morning.
The first two images were taken at the pole farm, where I learned how to climb a telephone pole.
This image is a fence and shadow in my neighborhood.
This image is a line of Irish dancers performing at a fundraiser. They are from McBride's School of Irish Dance, and I've seen many of their performances.

This final image is from Sacred Ground: America's Military Cemeteries. It's one of my shots that did not make it into the book.

Graveyard and fence - my two favorites.

I just started gathering shots of colors and stuff to use on an upcoming post. It should be fun.

Like your shots. I am partial to the cemetery shots. Have a few of those myself from Germany, England and Luxembourg, not to mention Arlington.

Thanks Regular guy!

I can hear the action in the dancer shot. Cemetery has a great perspective. Who knew there is a pole farm.
