Weekly photo challenge: From Lines to Patterns


Last Friday the latest WordPress photo challenge was issued.  I was immediately intrigued.  I had some ideas, but no time this week to execute them.  Now here it is Wednesday night and the Friday deadline is looming.

I was thinking about one particular photo I had in my archives from our trip to Washington DC last may.  As I searched for it I realized there were a lot of shots from that great city that spoke to lines and patterns.

So I followed the instructions from WordPress to create a tile filled with multiple photos.  If you know me you know how hard that technical stuff is.  So I’m thrilled to show you a photo collage of lines and patterns in Washington DC!

From top left first row:  Ceiling of Jefferson Monument; Arches inside the National Cathedral, apartment buildings.  Second row from left:  Roswell metro station; stairway in Senate building.  Third row from left:  Treasury building at night; Arlington office building reflections from our hotel room.

This was fun.  I still might head out sometime looking for more rural lines and patterns.  Or head into Detroit to see what’s there.  You’ll be the first to see whatever I come up with.  Sooner or later.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. Wowwee…love your “lines” photos! What great representations! Oh and Washington DC is a fab place to visit! Lots of great museums and parks!!


  2. What is so cool about Washington is the varied styles of architecture – always a mix of modern, traditional, and gothic. You really captured a little bit of each. Cool stuff!


  3. that is what is so cool with a photo challenge – until you start looking for a specific thing you never realize that what you are looking for is everywhere 🙂


  4. Those are fantastic, Dawn. My drawing teacher’s assignment to the class for this first week is to see shapes and patterns. Fascinating how things jump out at you when you open your eyes, isn’t it?


  5. Great choices, Dawn! Glad you found the tiled mosaic not too difficult, too 🙂


  6. I think you did a great job, Dawn. Both in the choosing of which photos to include and in the technical tile.


  7. Great job! Love the stair one the best.


  8. This is great, Dawn. So many patterns and lines everywhere we look. Was thinking about this challenge in relation to nature, but there are also many opportunities in buildings and architecture, too.
