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.

‘Timber roof’, Stokesay Castle, 2017.

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!

Channeled light – Sunday stills – Window

This week Hugh is hosting the Sunday stills challenge while Terri Webster Schrandt is on a blogging break.  And he asks:

Share with us your photos, stories, poetry, or thoughts, about a window. What do you see when looking in or out of it? Is it only you that can see it? Describe what’s there.

So here is a photo from the archives, taken on our 2012 trip to France, on our way home after playing at a festival out there.  The way light enters religious buildings has always inspired me, and you cannot help but feel a sense of awe when standing in a cathedral or large church watching how sunlight is channeled through windows to illuminate the architecture.

Windows, flowers, birds – Weekly Photo Challenge: Windows

This weeks challenge asks:

Your inspiration this week is windows. Use a window to frame your shot. Show us what you see out the window from the place where you usually blog, use a window to give structure to your photo, or make a window itself your subject.

To get more creative, use the glass in a window to add texture to your photo. And if you feel like being metaphorical, go for it! Share an image focused on someone’s eyes (the windows to the soul, dont’cha know), or of a landscape or piece of art that’s like a window to another world for you.

Well I’m editing photos from this years visit to the lake district at the moment, and I noticed this one, a window within a window, and some pretty flowers to go with it.  Obviously not a place I blog from, however I do tend to use a photo from whatever the current set of photos I am working on is to blog.  And in this case the window may be the subject, but it also frames the inner shot.
