I love this week’s photo challenge, which is “Lines and Patterns.” The challenge asks that we find “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.” Here are lines and patterns that I just recently photographed, some man-made, others in nature!
Let’s begin with two that captured my eye recently that are man-made….The first is a patterned wall that I discovered. The colors and weave are what caught my eye!
A wall in a building
Glitz was everywhere in this building and looking up I found these lovely lines and patterns. The random patterns are reflections of all underneath this area of the ceiling…
Reflections from a ceiling
Moving on to those found in nature, check out these lovely lines and patterns found in sandstone in the desert!
A design found in rock
Getting close to a rock wall shows all the details that one could miss just walking by…
Taking a closer look at life
Looking at the earth beneath my feet the earth is parched.
Continuing on it changes to beautiful grains of sand that squish beneath my feet as I walk.
Walking on further I find the skin shed off of a snake. Holding it up to the light I see beautiful lines and patterns, a fingerprint of sorts from the snake that moved on.
A plant in the desert, one of my favorite, a barrel cactus, sits before me. The beauty of this is found in the contrasting colors, lines and spinal patterns…
Lines go every which way
