Weekly Photo Challenge: From Lines to Patterns

Weekly Photo Challenge: From Lines to Patterns

From lines to patterns. We see lines and patterns in the world around us, in nature and things man-made. Sometimes we don’t realize they’re there: on the street, across the walls, up in the sky, and along the ground on which we walk.

Today’s challenge is inspired by Evan Zelermyer‘s stunning urban, abstract, and architectural images from his “Shape, Line, Texture, Pattern” post published earlier this week. I’d love to see your interpretations of these elements, so grab your camera, get outside, and snap a great shot of shapes or lines that you stumble upon, or a cool texture or pattern that catches your eye.


I decided to try to do more of these photo challenges from WordPress. Not only to help me with my photo shooting skills but they also help me open my mind to everyday things. Things that I thought were mundane are suddenly interesting and intriguing. I think that opening up my mind like this helps me become a better writer also. I will ‘see’ things in my mind in new lights and that can’t be a bad thing.

These photos I took around my yard today. I see my fence and steps in a rather fascinating light. The textures, the lines, everything are so much more interesting when you really look at them! Hope you enjoy.
