I've always loved the sidewalk outside my house with all of its cracks and marvelous textures, but I've never had a good excuse to really try photographing it until this challenge; the fence worked nicely as an additional set of parallel lines. I had several ideas for this challenge, but this turned out to be the photograph I liked best.

Editing: Cropped, sharpened once, resized, coloured with hue/saturation, curves tweaked, border added.

This is a warm and pleasant image and a perfect interpretation of the Challenge. Because I ignore borders when giving scores, this is well worth a 9. But do please think about this border which visually covers part of this very nice image. It's good. Why cover it up. (Okay, sorry about the soapbox) Good luck.
