Being creative with Patterns

Jude has asked us to show patterns in our images, and this week, use patterns as a backdrop, which I am showing in these images:

  1. Wonderful captures, Sue. I wonder if your subjects had any idea of how they’d look against these patterned backdrops. So artistic. 🙂

  2. Brilliant Sue, exactly what I was thinking of. I love the first one, but the others also fit the brief perfectly. Thanks so much!

  3. I have to say I love these!

  4. Nicely done, Sue. The first one alone nailed it! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. Well done Sue. I too like that first one. I keep looking, but so far have not found anything as good as this selection.

      Thanks very much, Pauline! Now, I’m going to ask you, as an artistic lady, if you needed to show something that said ‘belonging’, what would spring to mind?

      • That is a challenge Sue. Hmmm…. had to ponder on that question. I asked jack, he said “family”. But after a lot of thought I think for me belonging is “country” I feel a deep sense of being Australian, belonging here, even though I wasn’t born here… is it for a photo challenge? It would be a hard one….

      • Sue

        Yep, my photo club….and I don’t have a strong enough image

  6. You nailed it, Sue! Great stuff 🙂 🙂 Happy weekend!

  7. That first shot is really excellent, Sue. But all ‘good to go’ for Jude’s pattern exercise.

  8. I haven’t yet risen to this challenge. But you have. And so well. I particularly like the second one, in which the quietly absorbed reader has all hell breaking loose behind her!

  9. Wow! A picture of two people talking to one another. That would be an excellent photo challenge in itself. I liked the one with the woman calmly reading the paper before that dazzling artwork. If you don’t look too closely and see the chair legs it appears she is seated on the art.

  10. great and perfect captures Sue!!

  11. I agree with favoring the first, but you did a great job with all of them.

    The * basket weave patterned pillars as background are brilliant for this challenge Sue . Well found 😉

    Love the first image especially!

  15. oh these are so good – understand exactly now what Jude was after.

  16. These are excellent for Jude’s challenge, Sue. 🙂 I love them all

  17. Love the vibe of each shot – and patterns of course – so much art with the designs and looks of the people – fun post
