Pattern — the photo subject of this week — is wide. Patterns in nature, man-made patterns or more abstractly … behavioural patterns. The latter would be a little harder to illustrate . In any event, I’ll grab this subject as an opportunity to write something. It’s been a while … not due to lack of will — just haven’t had anything pressing to write about. Today, I thought about C.B. Wentworth, fellow blogger and accomplished writer, who blogs from a coffee shop most of the time. Grabbed my iPad and went to Starbucks. Thought perhaps a change of environment would do the trick, but it didn’t. It was Saturday, and a whole different crowd than the usual, high-tech that usually frequents my Starbucks of choice. Think I’ve written about that before … how quiet it is in there, everyone hooked up to something! Today there were families with children, screaming at the top of their lungs. That didn’t work, so instead I walked in to the adjacent book store and browsed instead.
Now … for patterns — I love patterns in nature … they intrigue and awe me! Not only the zebras, giraffes and cheetahs I see on TV, but also closer to home … the back of a Blue Jay, for example. For this challenge, I chose the Loon. His pattern is terrific, but he keeps eluding me and my camera. The rare times the Loon appears here, it’s in the very center of the lake … way off, regardless of which side you’re on. So here’s the the most decent shot of a Loon I’ve ever got.
