Patterns around us

It is really only since becoming the delighted owner of a digital camera some years ago that I have been able to indulge my interest in capturing some of the various SONY DSCpatterns that surround us. Some we pass by without paying them much attention while others demand a closer look.

Sometimes one can be surprised by what a pattern turns out to be – as we did when we found a Scops Owl sheltering in a tree right next to our tent in the Kruger National Park!

True, these are all trees well away from home. Even in the garden are patterns worth exploring though: this fungus appeared on wood which had been lying in the gardenSONY DSC for years.

I think a truly fascinatingOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA pattern is this very close look inside a nasturtium flower – I have Barry to thank for this image, which is almost from an insect’s point of view.

Stained glass windows are another source of fascination, each has a story to tell and some of the beautiful ones I have seen may be aired in time to come.
