I am back this week with Project 52, where the hosts pick a theme and we all come up with an original photo to go with the theme. I have not kept up as much as I would have liked but this week just worked out perfectly.
This weeks theme is Pattern!
It really ends up being perfect, in a way that I wish I had planned it but I didn’t which makes it even more fun really. I was taking a photo to post to my personal Facebook account to show someone back in Colorado how a table project turned out. I was struggling getting the lighting right, and trying to see the woodgrain of the table, as well as capture the true color of the refinished table. Its a beautiful purple, with a satin finish.
I am in love with this table, and someone was just throwing it away! But that is a whole different post, and a month long process of making the table pretty. Turns out that when I am struggling with a photo in one area, I sometimes manage to catch another point of view without even trying. Confused yet? I have had a lot of coffee today, and am on a rambling marathon I think. Anyways, the point is, table photos might not be perfect but I did manage to capture the geometric pattern in the carpet quite well without even trying.
Normally, had I tried to take a carpet photo all you would have seen was a lack of vacuuming, or the pattern would have disappeared completely. I am pretty sure my camera likes to hide things like that one me, just to keep me on my toes!
One of the hosts, Sarah Halstead has a beautiful summer flower photo up this week, as well as the linky for adding your own pattern photos this week.
