Photograph Challenge February 2008 – Patterns
Graham over at One Man’s Travel Blog has issued a new photography challenge for February. You may recall that January’s challenge was ‘One’, and I contributed a few photos that I had taken of the Wallace Monument. This month’s theme is ‘Patterns’ and I’ve decided to participate using these photos that I took last week of peacock feathers. One of my friends has a peacock called Oscar, a peahen called Connie and 3 baby peachicks, that live in her garden. They have such beautiful plumage, and last year, when Oscar was shedding his feathers around the lawn, she very kindly gave my children some feathers to take home with them. They now decorate my lounge, but a couple of days ago, I decided to take them upstairs and take a few photos of them in direct sunlight. I love the resulting shots of feather and shadow. See what you think.
What patterns particularly appeal to your eye? Which do you prefer, the patterns found in nature or in civilisation, such as these amazing pics from Tokyo. Or do you prefer a more random aesthetic altogether?
