whether its in nature , or in your home furnishings
in a mural or a picture
I Volunteer at Imperial War Museum North, in Manchester, and a key place you spot patterns are in the camouflaged objects around the exhibition space
Most camouflage patterns are inspired by Nature. I was lucky enough to capture a picture of this lizard while he was standing still – out in the distance his patterned skin would have blended into the tree, as if he was part of it….Great for hide and seek.
Mother nature’s rather good with patterns as well, together with jack frost. This pic was taken in the winter season, and although it seems random, there’s a definite structure and pattern to the way the crystals of frost have formed on the car roof.
Its funny how a couple of steps, or a turn of the body can change the view of what you are capturing.
I was stood by the pontoon of the watersports centre on Salford Quays, when the Canada Geese came up the centenary walkway for their elevenses.
In they came one after the other, heading for a grassy spot by the pontoon where a water bailiff had generously left some bird food across it. They all ate like royalty, and then waddled back down the walkway to the watersports centre, where they hopped in and out of the canal basins
I could be some time with this particular part of the challenge !(sic)
I mean where to begin – I’m a bit of a foodie. I enjoy my food – not just the meats but the pasta and vegetables as well. Christmas time sees a smorgasbord of delights, from Spiced Ham to cheesy pasta bakes – not forgetting of course Christmas pudding and Battenburg Cake
My Nephews are partial to a bit of Jelly and custard at Christmas, and for the adults aside from the Christmas pud, there’s usually the Content for a trifle on the go. But this year they helped make something really special – a tray of gingerbread men…now I don’t know if any of them escaped the Christmas table but one or two of them definitely did a disappearing act…
