Nature's Patterns

Our local Photo Group had a photography workshop last week, led by one of our most knowledgeable members.  He had us outside, paying attention to various camera settings, and looking for patterns.  Later, when I uploaded my photos and looked at them, I was struck by these ones.

Can you tell what they are?

He suggested that we try just looking for patterns, which I did, and found this.

He suggested that we shoot these vertically instead of the usual horizontal.

But actually I found I liked the horizontal version better.

 So have you figured it out yet?

Common bulrushes or cattails, growing in the ditch.

Here's the first view I had, when he took us out to the edge of the road.  The photos above are what I got out of it!  Turned out I enjoyed this workshop a lot, 'cause I like these pictures!

  1. I like these pictures too, Furry. Nice work!

  2. I like these too. The horizontal ones. :) Very artistic.

  3. Pretty neat patterns. I've been seeing these down by the little pond here in town. When I was a kid we used to call them punks.

  4. Lovely shots. I like to look for patterns, too. These are really great.

  5. lovely, and now I am using my camera more, I see everything in such a different way. Cheers,Jean

  6. It is so often about looking for something different in the ordinary! I have a few pics along this idea that I need to share!

  7. Oh nice idea for a way to look at nature. I too like the vertical...No, I didn't know what they were but they bring back fond memories of playing with them as a child at the cabin..Thank you for linking into Nature Notes..Michelle
