Patterns: Weekly Photography Challenge

Image by antifluor

This week we published a popular post titled – 33 Inspirational Images that Feature Patterns and Repetition which got some great feedback.

So I thought it might be fun to make that the topic of this weeks challenge. So over the next few days of travels with your camera look for patterns that you can photograph. You’ll see there everywhere you look – in nature, around your home, in architecture… the more you look the more you’ll realise they’re everywhere.

Once you’ve selected your ‘Patterns’ image/s upload them to your favourite photo sharing site and either share a link to it or – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSPATTERN to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in the last challenge – Time challenge where there were some beautiful shots submitted.

    DPS Patterns - not sure if I have posted late, but here are my two contributions.

    You would think this assignment would be easy, since patterns are everywhere in our lives. I took a ton of pics, but only a few I thought were worthy enough.

    This one is my first pick:

    Patterns add strength, but I like to explore the element of abstractness that strongly patterned images can bring. This shot, taken in New York City, gives a strong pattern of a NYC highrise on the surface, with a hint of a cityscape visible in reflections.

    Challenge from Digital Photography School: Patterns and Repititions. Here are a couple of photos I shot yesterday. I didn't know why until I read the e-mail from DPS.

    This is an evening shot of the underpass near our home.
    http://i1106.photobucket.com/albums/h365/lindadeal/Grandmas%20Camera/DO%20NOT%20MOVE/UnderPass-1.jpg[/img]
    And this is a shot of the gray brick wall at Braum's I took while going to the drive-through - with a little modification.

    I took this picture while I was visiting a friend who bartends. This was at the hotel bar. People who have seen the picture and have been to the bar didn't even recognize where it was from. They had never noticed that wall of patterns was there.

    While not traditional, this image has horizonal patterns in the wood, diagonal in the suspension wires and one stripe which brings them all into perspective! Brooklyn Bridge, NY
