Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern

The patterns of this scene jumped out at me, as I set out to capture a rather ordinary set of deck stairs, rising from the soil and mulch, and finished with wooden, cross-hatched trellis.

I had been drawn to the contrast of the competing patterns in the shot; the wood grain, the long shadows of the stair-treads cast by the morning sun, and the staunch uprights. I deemed this set of patterns and grains to be interesting, beautiful and worthy of a photograph.

I soon realized that the star of my impromptu show was actually a diminutive critter, safely camouflaged and hiding from me beneath the stairs, in the shadows. Perpendicular, horizontal woodgrains, are a suitable canvas indeed, on which to capture the curvilinear, complex-patterned, coat markings of my new little friend.


I'd appreciate your feedback (Please, leave a comment)!
