So, here are more patterns for this week's Thematic Photographic ... and a shameless plug for my other blog.
At the White River Pier passengers can wander around the shops. Notice the pattern of the planks, every other one treated for non-skid wandering.
Leading from the stunning first deck lobby to the second and third decks are grand staircases lined with ornate scroll banisters.
The golden pipes of the vintage calliope are arranged for visual beauty as well as musical fun.
A stroll aft to see the paddle wheels reveals the wake ....
Yesterday we were on the boat again (because we really enjoy it!) and I was noticing the patterns in the wake made by the paddle wheels. Not having my camera with me, because I have a file full of pics from the boat already, I came home and pulled up said file to see if I have already captured this pattern. What I noticed between the two paddle-tracks was a pattern much like the squares of a belgian waffle. This file picture is close to what I saw yesterday (maybe video would show the pattern more clearly, but I work with nano seconds of time). Anyway, it was an unexpected criss cross of the two wakes and delightful to look at.
