Patterns

I saw these patterns on the shelf at a local Thrift Store, and despite the poor lighting condition, I was determined to take some Shadow Shot pictures.

Funny how I find myself thinking about all the themes that I've recently joined when I'm out hunting for pictures. I noticed that I'm constantly looking for Reflection, Scenic, Red, Yellow, Sky Watch, Watery, or Shadow subjects for my shots.

Green Dish Pattern







Rusted Color Dish Pattern



Reasons I join these memes/themes:

  • It's fun to think "outside the box", so to speak!
  • Meet other bloggers from around the world
  • It's a great way to organize my pictures
  • I love seeing the creativity from different people.

  2. Cool vitage dishes (we're all about that!) but they make the most lovely shadows for sure!

  7. Thesy dishes produce exquisite and artistic shadows. The tan and green lighting is soft, the texture almost like a stylish spider web. Excellent captures!

  8. A great idea for the shadow shots, the patterns are very cool. The memes do influence our photography, in a very good way. I was out today searching for yellow and reflections.

    I agree with you about the memes - I am always on the lookout for shadows. I haven't joined in too many but I do enjoy them and hope to do more later.

  12. Hah didn't the storekeeper keep an eye on what you were doing? That's what I always worry about when doing such things. Those shadows are just perfect for Shadow Shot Sunday. Very nice!

    Your reasons are mine for joining this meme. Perhaps I should join some others!

    Thanks for visiting and enjoy your Sunday!

  18. interesting shots Icy, blogging indeed has opened our mind to the many ways we can look at things, finding patterns, finding unique beauty, really exercises our thoughts processes and hopefully, will help us sharp til we get very old :)

    PS....it's hard to explain the condition why the ER. I could not sleep thursday night because of uncomfortable pain which I thought was period related, I tried to brush it aside, until I could no longer take the pain and discomfort and since it is night already and doctor's offices are closed, had to go to ER instead for immediate help. got some inflammation which caused the uncomfortable pain, i no longer am in pain now (except for minor headache which is a side-effect of the medicine).
