When I think of repetition and pattern, I immediately think of music. So, I started with a few musical instrument pictures. In this shot of our piano keyboard, I like that one of the keys is a bit out of alignment, breaking the neat pattern.

I think hands make nice subjects for pictures.

We're church shopping right now, and this bicycle wheel was in the window of one of the churches we visited, called "The Table".

This next one is perhaps a bit boring, but I like it for some reason. I like how the spacing of the folds get closer and closer together as you go down.

Fall is definitely here, which is a great time for taking pictures.

Our trampoline netting is of course a pattern, so I tried to incorporate it into some pictures of the girls on the trampoline. The first one is a bit subtle, as I blurred out the foreground netting a lot.

|#10 - Ellie's one-handed cartwheel on our trampoline 1/500s f/7.1 ISO400 50mm|
Hannah wasn't doing anything quite as exciting on the trampoline as a one-handed cartwheel...

King's Park near the University of Manitoba is absolutely stunning in the fall.

I realize now that I should have increased my f-stop and used a slower shutter speed for that one. Not sure why I didn't.
|#13 - bridge in King's Park 1/100s f/3.5 ISO400 50mm|

Okay, that last one has nothing to do with repetition and pattern. I just think Sasha's really cute, and the colours at the park were amazing.
Here are a few repetition and pattern pics that I took with my phone during my recent weekend trip to Minneapolis to watch the Vikings versus the 49ers (I didn't want to lug my big camera around). I cropped the first one a bit to emphasize the repetition.
