Our photo challenge for the month of January is Repetition and Patterns. Each photo challenge has a set of guidelines, which are listed below. Please be sure to read everything below, before submitting your image.
 
CHALLENGE:  Repetition and Patterns
 
Repeating patterns are a daily part of our lives and one of the most powerful elements in art.  From the products on the grocery store shelves,to the pickets on a fence, they are ever visible. We may not always be aware of them, but once you start looking for patterns and shapes, you'll be surprised how many you find!

TIP: If you are having difficulty seeing patterns, I've found that exploring your subjects from a variety of angles helps. Get lower, look up, look down, be creative!
 
RULES:  Find a repetitive pattern or shape. A good rule of thumb is 3 or more for repetitive patterns and shapes.

IMAGE: Only ONE image per member may be submitted. Additional entries will be deleted.
 
JUDGING: The top three images from the submissions will be judged and critiqued. Points will be awarded for every submission as well as additional points for winners. See Challenge Points below for more info.
