Repeating Patterns


I fondly remember the photographic assignments we received from our photography professor at Temple University. Sometimes the assigned shots were simple and straightforward. Other times they required much more planning and thinking.

One assignment I enjoy giving to myself these days is what I call repeated patterns. Some days wildlife is no where to be seen. What is a photographer to do? Take his camera and go home? What fun would that be?

On one such day back in February of this year we came across this bridge and I couldn’t help but see the repeated pattern that presented itself to me. This is certainly not a perfect photo by any means, but it helps me illustrate what I mean when I talk about repeating patterns.

What assignments do you enjoy photographing? What self-assignments do you give yourself?
