Saturday Photo Hunt --- Row





ROW

tnChick said that the theme for this week meant things in a row. No problem, anyone can put things in a row and photograph them. I thought about that for about five seconds. But wait, let's look around and see what there is out there in the big wide world, already in a row. Here you see what I found on my walk with my group to Granville Island yesterday on a cloudy day.

Of course today I checked and tnChick has added lots of other definitions, but too late. Things in a row it is from JMB. Please click on the images to get a better view.

You can't go to Granville Island without seeing boats in a row, at their mooreage. Do you wonder, as I do, why some are bow in and others are bow out?

Four town houses in a row, overlooking a lagoon, with beautiful water lilies in bloom

You don't often see a yacht with all its flags out in a row, fully displayed as for a sail past.

Snap! Firstly, because I also decided to put up 3 photos for this week's Photo Hunt. Secondly, my pictures also feature rowhouses and high-rises...but seeing as they're from different parts of the world, they look quite a bit different from yours. :b

Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos. Sailing is always a nice adventure.

Vijay said...

Great photos as usual JMB.

About the boats: Druggies park their boats bow out to facilitate a fast getaway. I'm glad I could share this important tip with you :)

meeyauw said...

Good morning! You have great photos of rows. The sailboats remind me so much of the New England coast, and there are so many times I miss that. Love hearing those flags flapping, too!

Janice Thomson said...

Love the townhouse photo Jmb...the reflections are beautiful....kind of a double 'all in a row' :)

mar said...

Great pictures, perfect choices for the theme!

Ian Lidster said...

Ah -- symetry. As a very mild OC I like to set things in rows, and your photos capture the human impulse to do so. Have a good weekend.
Cheers,
Ian

KISSEDALOTATOADS said...

Bow in, bow out,...... my guess is for quicker escape,... lol. Just kidding. Love the apartments on the water, those are great. All your photos are good. Have a happy weekend.

Indiana Amy said...

Great use of the theme!

jeannie said...

Great rows!!! The water is pretty.

Liz said...

Snap with the boats! (Sort of) The second photo is especially good with the reflection.

Thank you, jmb, for all your lovely words of comfort. They are appreciated.

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Always wonderful photos, jmb, and always a unique take on the theme.

Josie said...

JMB, what a great interpretation of "rows". I have often wondered, as well, why some boats are bow in, and some out. Maybe it's something to do with the owner's seamanship.

Beautiful photos, as always.

cheers,
Josie

Drew said...

I like your examples of rows, very well done.

jmb said...

Thanks to everyone who visited and commenting on my photo hunt for things in a row.
regards to you all

I always love all of your photos, especially the ones of Stanley Park and Granville Island.

Possibly the boats that are bow in are handles by people who have trouble reversing into parking places!

lady macleod said...

as always too much fun. I particularly like the boats. We sailed for years but then decided we were old enough to decide "real sailing" included boats with a motor as well! I'm not sure about the bow in, bow out as we always docked bow in, but it may have something to do with preference of debarking or ability to pull out.

Just beautiful, thank you for sharing.

Such BEAUTIFUL rows!!! I love them all!
