Thursday’s Special: Patterns

This week’s Thursday’s Special is about Pattern.

Here are some repeating patterns of broken windows in an abandoned mill (and a recurring pattern in my life is searching out ruins, derelict, abandoned places). Presented in black & white to focus your eye on the patterns:

you can see more examples at Paula’s blog here.



  1. B+W was a very good choice for this one Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Sonel

    Absolutely stunning capture Sue. It looks like fine stitch work. You’ve outdone yourself again and the B&W accentuates it so much more. Love it! 😀

  3. I love this in so many ways. It’s a perfect pattern, and it’s derelict, and it’s b&w, and the pattern varies subtly.

  4. Perfect idea for the theme, very well captured… 🙂

  5. I’m very fond of old warehouses and industrial buildings. But also perceived in the abstract, this is a most striking composition, Sue. The broken windows add to the fascination.

  6. Yes, black and white was a good choice here 🙂 Thank you, Sue 🙂

  8. Great choice to use B&W for this lovely building.

  9. Yes, beautiful random patterns here.

  10. You have a very artistic eye Sue. This is perfect for B&W

  11. Fine image Sue – a few of these buildings should be retained in their abandoned state rather than turning them all into loft apartments.

  12. Smashing shot Sue.. no pun intended!

  13. Great choice for the showcase of patters! I love how each window is unique though 🙂

  14. Looks like a game of ‘which two are the same’ 🙂 Interesting shot and great choice.

  15. What a great eye you have Sue. I think a lot of folks, including me, would walk right by such a building and not see the art before them.

  16. I’m sure that old mill could tell a few tales. Love the way you’ve captured the pattern in B&W.The broken panes just add to the intrigue.

  17. Sorry Sue. My comment to Gunta went on the wrong post. 😳 Please can you delete?

  18. Good choice of B&W – and your favourite decay – nicely immersed in each other.

  19. Definitely a recurring theme, Sue, and a popular choice 🙂

  20. Perfect choice for the challenge Sue.
