"Pattern(s)" is the assigned category for next month's "salon" at my photo club. I really don't like that word "salon". In my mind it's really a contest. Why don't we just call it that.
Anyway, I did enjoy going through my images two nights ago looking for recent mages showing a pattern. Though the monthly categories are known a year in advance, I usually forget to have a list with me when out shooting. Nevertheless, I did find some candidates in my library of images. None were taken with this category in mind, but they do fit the category.
Last night I decided on the fifth (last) image below, and submitted it digitally to my club at the required slide show resolution of 1400 x 1050 pixels.
This is a closeup of a lawn owner's least favorite flower, the dandelion. I could not submit this image because I had already submitted it a few months ago in another category, using the title Nature's Symmetry.
This scene taken at low tide shows a very nice pattern formed in the sand by little lapping waves as the tide receded. I think it needs something more. Perhaps a starfish sitting off to the side, or a little child sitting with a pail and shovel.
I think this agricultural scene is a little flat. It fits the category for sure, but I like the final image, below, better
Here the pattern is in the process of being completed. There's more of a story to it because of the addition of the farmer and tractor, and the action of the grass being cut by the 13 foot New Holland model 1431 disc mower.
