Project 52/Framed: Broken patterns

Last week, we sought patterns to bring a sense of rhythm and harmony to our photos.However, patterns on their own can feel somewhat lacking – patterns can set a scene, but do not really create a point of interest to hold the viewer’s gaze.Breaking the pattern in an unexpected way can add the tension and vitality that transforms a scene from interesting to captivating.  Our attention is riveted to object or person that disturbs the pattern, and the properties of the pattern itself are accentuated by the interruption.

Unfortunately, in shooting for this week’s assignment I found that finding broken patterns was challenging in itself. Creating an interesting and high-quality photo using them was an even taller order that I did not quite meet. This is the picture I decided to contribute to this week’s Who We Become collection.


The rest are some of my other attempts.
