This is a pattern in more ways then one down south now.

AH.........clever! Yes there are 2 patterns here. The obvious pattern of squares but the less obvious (?), the pattern of destruction that the south is suffering with.

Well done!

Nice shot, photographically. Not nice for what it represents. Is/was that the causeway that connects the Florida Keys?

Thanks and sorry no, not from the Keys. This is part of I-90 in Mississippi near Gulfport. This is only one of the bridges that look like this (yes more of a pattern). I am a little limited in what subjects I can get photos of at this time. It is kind of hard to find things that fit the Challenge.

Daz, you say you have trouble finding things that fit the challenge. Take a look around you. From where I am sitting, I can see a pattern of vent holes on one of my printers, the spiral form of my pen holder, the buttons on a tv remote, the window blinds, shadows from the blinds (oops, wait a minute, got to go shoot that shadow!). Look at the floor, carpet, hardwood, tile. As I said in the challenge description, patterns are everywhere. Just open your eyes. I don't know how experienced you are in photography but what I am describing is the "art of seeing" a picture.

Keep trying.

Calr, I misspoke. I should have said that the last challenge it was not something I could go out and do. This challenge is some thing that with my limited abilities I can participate in. This one is much more generic (as in you are correct, patterns are all around use). The last challenge was a good one I just could not get out to take advantage of it. When I get my next brake I am going to look for some good patterns.

A very nice shot, Daz. You've made something beautiful out of something catastrophic. Well done.
