Human nature – Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Patterns

For this weeks Fun Foto Challenge Cee gives us the topic of ‘Patterns’.

It seems to be human nature to see patterns everywhere, and we go out of our way to create them, often shaping nature’s sometimes chaotic patterns into our own regimented patterns, so that they fit withing the synaptic patterns we wish to see.

So here are a few patterns made by human hands, and the patterns I see when I look at them.

And given I have looked at patterns in architecture, I could not resist a quote from an architect –

Anytime I see an unusual combination of colors or patterns or texture, I buy it. – Peter Marino

My textile cupboard will affirm the above quote!

Buds – K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge – A hint of Spring.

Each week, K’lee and Dale offer us  prompts for you to consider as the latest challenge.  This week it is:

A hint of Spring

So here is my offering, I did consider using a small metal spring, but then opted for this picture, with just a little touch of cosmic dusting.

Fire – Photo for the Week – 25- Chimneys and Fireplaces

For this weeks challenge Bren at RyanPhotography asks:

This week’s challenge is Chimneys and Fireplaces.  Originally it was only going to be chimneys but as chimneys don’t exist without a fireplaces.  I thought the two subjects go hand in hand.

So here are a few reworked shots from the archives.

Stokesay – Weekly Photo Challenge: Corner.

This weeks Challenge asks us:

“What kinds of images and emotions do corners evoke in you? In this week’s challenge, share a photo that plays on any of the word’s many meanings. Show your favorite street corner, or a cozy nook in your home where you feel truly at peace. Focus on a person or place that’s recently gone through a transformation — “turned a corner,” as we often say. Or stick to geometry and highlight the angularity of a favorite landscape or object.”

And so predictably I have opted to stick with the angularity of a favorite landscape or object.

So here is a 4 image stitch taken in April of Stokesay Castle.
