The weekend is here at last! And there was much rejoicing! Those of you that live in this part of the world (Southern California and surrounding) already know that tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo (literally the 5th of May). But for those of you that have no idea what Cinco de Mayo is:

"Cinco de Mayo ("The Fifth of May" in Spanish) is a national, but not federal, holiday in Mexico which is also widely celebrated in the United States. It commemorates the victory of Mexican forces led by General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguin over the French occupational forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.
See main story:
Battle of Puebla
A common misconception is that Cinco de Mayo is Mexico's Independence Day, which is celebrated on September 16th ("Dieciseis de septiembre" in Spanish)." Wikipedia.

Well, one more week down, and top ten pictures is off to a good launch. Thanks to everyone who has conacted me with encouraging words. There are so many incredible pictures to sift through, it is always difficult to stop and pick just 10.

I would love to hear recommendations for topics and if anyone has seen some really incredible pictures, let me know where they are. (Not that I need more sources!)

Today its all about lines. Straight lines, curved lines, bent lines, long lines, short lines... any line will do. For those of you really smart folks out there, I know that a line by definition must be straight so all those other "types" of lines aren't really lines. Well some lines (rules) are meant to be bent (broken)

If you need a little more clarity about what a line is check Wikipedia:

"A line can be described as an infinitely thin, infinitely long, perfectly straight curve (the term curve in mathematics includes "straight curves") containing an infinite number of points. In Euclidean geometry, exactly one line can be found that passes through any two points. The line provides the shortest connection between the points.In two dimensions, two different lines can either be parallel, meaning they never meet, or may intersect at one and only one point. In three or more dimensions, lines may also be skew, meaning they don't meet, but also don't define a plane. Two distinct planes intersect in at most one line. Three or more points that lie on the same line are called collinear."

So, today's pictures pay tribute to lines wherever they are found.

Fog on the Golden Gate

Has our conscience shown?
Has the sweet breeze blown?
Has all the kindness gone?
Hope still lingers on.
I drink myself of newfound pity
Sitting alone in new york city
And I dont know why.
Are we listening to hyms of offering?
Have we eyes to see that love is gathering?
All the words that Ive been reading
Have now started the act of bleeding into one.
So I walk up on high
And I step to the edge
To see my world below.
And I laugh at myself
As the years roll down.
cause its the world I know.
Its the world I know.
Collective Soul.

Well everyone... Enjoy your Cinco De Mayo,
As always, thanks to everyone for sharing.
Good Night!
