I started my seach seeing patterns everywhere, in clovers, pavement, walls, fabric.... I could go on and on. The creative part was in searching for a pattern that would also make an interesting photo subject.
These flowers represent the many repeat patterns found in nature, and even the activities of the bees is a pattern of nature repeating itself season after season.
Jack the cat has a lovely pattern in his fur
Patterns are easily found in man made structures, some very obvoius...
patterns in the roof tiles and patterns in the iron work
the patterns of wooden house trim and roof shingles
and the subtle symmetrical patterns in the architectural details of this old building
You'll see patterns in tunnels...
in your local garden center....
and even while putting your feet up for a rest !!
