The theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge is “From Lines to Patterns” (http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/09/20/lines-patterns/). Today we went to a pop-up sculpture garden in a nearby orchard called “Art in the Orchard” and had an amazing time. (http://www.parkhillorchard.com/art) I took this photo of a shed that was covered in mirrors on the outside and the inside was a huge, walk in pinhole camera obscura. It was amazing. I think this fits the theme with the lines on the reflected image from the seams of the mirrors (part of the cool part of the mirror panels was that they were all different sizes, seemingly “found mirrors”). I took pictures of several of the little signs detailing info about the pieces and the artists, but am kicking myself for not getting this one. All I can find about it on-line is that it’s called “Shed” by Maggie Nowinski (http://maggienowinski.com/)
Here are a couple of my favorites from this week’s collection:
Illuminating the Invisible posted a series of black and white photos from the Otago University campus and wrote about her experience in such a beautiful way: http://illuminatingtheinvisible24.wordpress.com/2013/09/22/from-lines-to-patterns/.
Women Who Think Too Much has a few, very different, entries. One groups is of aerial photos, which I love. This one is a pattern of palm branches and maybe some kind of starfish? I can’t tell, but it’s beautiful (and reminiscent of a mandala). http://womenwhothinktoomuch.wordpress.com/2013/09/21/weekly-photo-challenge-from-lines-to-patterns/
And these, from WryGrass, are of Fort Macon. They really remind me of a fort that we had an amazing time exploring on our honeymoon in Puerto Rico (El Moro in Old San Juan). I took several pictures with similar angles and viewpoints. I love her perspective. http://wrygrass.com/2013/09/21/weekly-photo-challenge-from-lines-to-patterns/
Hope you enjoy exploring some other photos from these week’s prompt.
