Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge : Patterns

I took some new photos for this challenge but I ended up junking them when I found better ones in my archives. Some of them were in quite brilliant colour and it was almost a shame to turn them into black and white photographs. I decided to leave just a hint of colour in a couple where others are true black and white shots. When you look you can find patterns almost anywhere. My cat has beautiful stripes being a tabby cat. One of the chefs made a work of art from a simple melon and a rooster walking through the snow left some footprints that I thought made a nice pattern. I’ve always loved looking at footprints and handprints. But anyway here is my effort for “Patterns”

You can see the diamond shaped pattern throughout this building. I still think it looks like a giant pot scourer.
Circus Tent
A circus tent covered in bold stripes so it will stand out.
A rooster made these lovely footprints in the snow. There look rather like leaves don’t they?

The red and white flowers were set up to form a cross like pattern.

The melon soon became quite a work of art after the chef finished carving it out.

I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see
