Let me know which you prefer and why.
Pattern is the theme of WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. How delicious!!!!
Our visual landscape is stacked with lines that cross, colors creating shapes, positive spaces, negative spaces, light showing unforeseen angles–gems that bring a rhythm to what seems chaos and vice versus.
Once we focus, really give pause to our surroundings, patterns pop instantly and mesmerize as well as tranquillize. Patterns are repetitions of a simple or complex design, which add zest to our visual field.
We stumble over them in everyday living. We seek them for their artistic pull. We find them in the oddest places and the most common.
They entertain. They delude. They trick. They calm. They agitate. They fool.
They fixate our attention. They play with our sense of reality.
In the Lens section are two photographs that I took last week. As I passed a parking garage, I was lured by the light and shadows that created patterns everywhere.
In truth, I cannot imagine a world devoid of patterns. They are a constant source of play with my imagination, and hope for variations that stun my sensibilities.
