Repetition & Pattern by Jason

I think we need to say a little more about the photo's we show... what we like why we chose them, the choices we made when shooting them. anything like that so we can try to convey the why not just the, technical, how. I think the why is important too. Go into as much or as little detail as you are comfortable with.

#1A  Planter, Stephan Juba Park 1/40, f/5.6, ISO 200, 35mm

I saw this same pattern on the rail bridge on the eastern edge of the park but thought this planter offered more interest as you can see through it. I realize the sky is over exposed but with the black painted metal it would have been difficult have everything exposed properly. I have also translated it into a B&W which I like.

#1B (as above)

I like the pattern on the Public Safety Building. I always have... (Not enough to get arrested...) I like the concrete fins and the 70's vibe. I like how the warmth of the day comes out. I even like the 3 red lights.

#2 The Public Safety Building 151 Princess 1/100, f/8, ISO 200, 18mm

This has a few patterns on it. The corrugated metal, the brick buildings and the zigzag of the fire escape. I tried to compose this so each element added some visual interest to the photo.

#3 The new addition to Pantages Playhouse. 1/20, f/8, ISO 400, 24mm

Like Lisa, I too tweaked my back ally shot. the light was fading so the original had kind of a cast to it. I don't see a problem using editing software. I like to use it to show what I saw not what the camera captured. (Yes these are NOT always the same.) I did the same to my photo of the Emptyful sculpture in the reflections assignment.

#4 Downtown Back Alley. 1/30, f/4.8, ISO 400, 30mm

I thought "The Cube" would make a perfect subject. Here I crammed the lens into one of the large holes to capture the inside of The Cube. I like the pattern of light and shadow on the ground and the pattern of the back wall. The magenta light breaks up the mono-tonal quality the photo has.

#5 The Cube, Old Market Square. 1/400, f/5.6, ISO 200, 55mm

Here is one more of The Cube, but from the outside. I like the forced perspective this pattern has.

#6 The Cube, Old Market Square. 1/800, f/3.5, ISO 200, 18mm

I'm not sure what this is aside from a sculpture. The coiled tubing gets coloured fluid pumped through. I found it in Old Market Square and liked it right away.

#7 Tube sculpture Old Market Square. 1/160, f/6.3, ISO 200, 60mm

#7 Tube sculpture Old Market Square. 1/100, f/6.3, ISO 200, 60mm

The Federal Heritage Building is another one of my favorites. It is Art Nouveau in my books. I liked the ferocity of the stylized bison above the big front archway.

#8 Federal Heritage Building 269 Main St.  1/100, f/8, ISO 200, 29mm

These two are travel pics. But they fit the criteria perfectly. I like the quirky festive funness! this shows.

#9 Orchard St. Mall, Inside the Christmas tree, Singapore.  1/60, f/4, ISO 200, 18mm

#10 "Mill City" area Minneapolis Minnesota.  1/250, f/8, ISO 100, 26mm

 6.  WAG entrance  f/5.6  Shutter Speed 1/250  ISO 1000  Focal Length 85mm
I thought this shot looked so much nicer B&W

 7.  Another shady back alley  f/4  Shutter Speed 1/250  ISO 100  Focal Length 18mm
I know we are shying away from editing, but when I saw this picture I knew that with some edits it would look so much more interesting.  I think so.

8.  Speedy's Cage  f/4  Shutter Speed 1/40  ISO 800  50mm lens
Not only are the bars on the cage repetitious, this guy's entire life is.  Run on wheel.  Drink water.  Eat.  Sleep.  Repeat.  
9.  Fence on Grandeur Avenue  f/1.4 Shutter Speed 1/400 ISO 250  50 mm Lens

aaaand a few more reflection shots!
