It’s once again Friday, which brings a new photo challenge seeking lines and patterns.
Life has made me a little too tired to write more now, so here are some of the lines and patterns of my days (and some accompanying haiku, if you click on the tiles).
Lines wiggly and straight/Encase Jewel-colored glass/Creating sea change
Fabric and steel mesh/Lines criss-crossed to make diamonds/Behind beagle pup
Two lines overhead/Make a triangle section/Atop fire-streaked sky
High geometry/As birds organize vector/In segmented sky
Lines make “X” patterns/And cross diagonally/Stretching out to sea
Another angle/From under the Zakim Bridge/Cables seem entwined
Deeply shadowed lines/Of an arch in the sunlight/A fanning pattern
Variegated/Blues lie horizontally/Some bands smooth, like glass
Look down in Boston/Where metal dots and trains’ planes/Form meta zig-zag
Early morning sun/Spirals out like Fibonacci/In narrowing curves
A two-way pattern/But the shadowy portion/Isn’t really there
Light falls through a gate/Squares and rectangles abound/Where pup waits for girl

She attended law school near the the banks of the Charles River and loves that dirty water; she will always think of Boston as her home.

Early Morning Sun… striking!
Thank you! That caught my eye on the way out the door to work and I confess going back in and taking the time to charge the camera battery enough to snap a few pictures. I knew it wouldn’t last.
You definitely have the eye!
love the haiku with the photos – great idea 🙂
(may just have to do that too…)
I can’t believe you haven’t yet 🙂 Maybe you could have a “photo tile/haiku day-of-the-week”?
Ah, would that I were that organised Stephanie…I don’t think I’ll schedule it weekly but it’s a great idea. At the moment, at the beach, I’m loving days of nothing…
Great colorful pics, love the one with the dog! 😉
Thanks: it’s obviously a little blurry, but the best shot to show the patterns 🙂
Beautiful photos of colour as well as lines and patterns Stephanie. A lovely gallery of lines 🙂
Thank you! I’ve still got a few Scotland galleries (with some of my very favorite patterns) for you to come….
I’ll look forward to seeing them 🙂
The Fibonacci pattern – and the bowl itself – is great.
I am so tickled when someone picks up on a Fibonacci reference. Thank you.
What delightful pictures — thanks for another viewing pleasure, Love, A&P
Any time 🙂
You’ve really got a great eye Stephanie. If that whole prosecutor thing doesn’t work out you could always give photography a try 😉
I thought I’d give the prosecutor thing another decade or two of trying, by which time I may be able to understand the camera lens thing. And thank, thank you, thank you for the gorgeous print. Between that and my NH calendar I am convinced your photographic work has magical restorative and healing powers (don’t know if the FDA would go for that, but I can give you an endorsement).
Stunning images! Fabulous perspective!
