Random pics #14-17: Repetition
This may bring charges of premature celebration, but in anticipation of our nomination for "Longest string of more-or-less repetitive posts to a weblog or other amateur easily-updated website of interest to few outside a small, fanatic audience," we're going to break stride today at dailysoy by bringing back a long-lost element - visuals. Pictures. Fotografias digitales. Don't worry, to avoid spraining anything we'll ease into it by building on today's theme of repetition.
Repetition as Agent of Climate Control

Repetition as Protection from the Elements
Typical residential tile roof in mainland Japan, wet from a recent rain
Repetition as Aesthetic Choice, Complexly Layered
Detail of the double skin on a Dior boutique (this one in Ginza, Tokyo, although a new store in Osaka appears to share the overall external appearance). Viewed from a bit more distance, it takes on this pattern. And when the pattern is broken for a sidewalk-level window display, it is done so in technicolor.
Repetition as Meditation Aid
Rock garden at Daisen-in temple in Kyoto's Daitokuji complex.
