Is it just me or is pattern photography addicting? I found that once I took my first one, I started seeing patterns everywhere, and I knew I was addicted when I made a category in my photo management software for patterns. It’s amazing how photography can open your eyes to the world around you, so that you see it in more detail.
This photo was taken inside the lobby of the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, England. The Fitzwilliam Museum houses world-class collections of works of art and antiquities spanning centuries and civilisations, including masterpieces by Monet, Degas, Renoir, and Picasso, to name just a few. I was in awe of the magnitude of talent on display, but unfortunately cameras were forbidden within the museum. The only place we were allowed to take photos was in the front lobby, but as you can see the lobby did not disappoint. Believe it or not, this is a picture of the ceiling, covered in many exquisite patterns and beautiful colours. I never get bored of looking at this photo because I think I see something new every time. I just love the old styles of architecture in Europe, with so many fancy designs and details adorning everything.
I always take photos like this, I’m totally in awe of Islamic art, I may just get some together for a blog.
Great idea! You should definitely do that – I would love to see it
