The 52-week photography project: patterns

The topic for week 30 of the 52-week photography project is “patterns.” The suggestion from Dogwood Photography, which created the project, is to “get inspired by the rhythm that patterns bring to your images.”

Everywhere I look, I see patterns.

I see patterns in man-made objects, and I see patterns in nature. I see patterns in the coloring of the leaves and the markings on the flowers.

I see patterns in buildings and in the things that are parts of buildings, such as banisters and stairways and floor tiles and ceiling tiles. I see patterns in bricks and in shingles and sidewalks.

I could see patterns in teacups and teapots and in dishes and in lamps and in furniture. Patterns look appealing and they make a room look more interesting.

Patterns are truly all around us. Purposely looking for the patterns in the world was a fascinating experience this week.

Next week: Come back next week for an update of the 52-week photography project, with another exciting theme!

  1. Looking for patterns everywhere resonates with looking for signs everywhere from the movie sixth sense. It is indeed interesting to look for patterns all around. Nice post.

  2. Patterns – yes, so many patterns in nature, and I understand many are mathematical in nature. I wish I had a mathematical mind!
