Oh boy! I like this topic.

I'll start with some squiggley lines on a brick. I realize that this is pushing it, but I think it's interesting, and I want to hear some reactions to it.







This is an interstate overpass section from New Orleans

I like the patterns in the brick in the first shot. I don't know it meets Vanessa's requirements or not. She can decide. Can you provide any more information about the brick? Is it historical? Is it hand made?

The second shot definitely meets the challenge but is not very artistic. It needs something to liven it up.

I don't know anything about the history of the brick. It is part of a retainer around a flower bed at my grandmother's house.



With the interstate shot, could you please offer some suggestions as to what might "liven it up"?

Perhaps widening the shot to show something under the bridge such as a building or landscape. If that bridge (overpass) crosses over another road or highway, you could include some vehicles on that road to give scale and perspective to the shot. An airplane or helicopter flying under the bridge would be nice....just kidding?

The squiggly lines look almost like cuneiform writing in the fist shot.

I agree with Cal, the second shot lacks something. A vanishing pont would help or repetitive pattern.

I think the first image fits nicely...there are lines...squiggley, but they are lines.
