This weeks challenge was to photograph something that showed
the use of repetition, either on its own, or used as an element of design.
I chose to show it as a design elelment. Repetition is one of the core elements of design.
Repeating an element in a room or vignette or even the fascade of a building
Energy and movement
This room above was photographed in an Toronto Bar.
A series of tall thin windows flanked the one wall.
Here the designer has divided the bench seats,
Hung panels of drapes
Pillows, pillows pillows.
A row of tables, nicley lined up with the pillows
A candle on every table
A glass wall with glass horns for vases with fresh roses.
You can create symmetry in a room that lacks it, by using repetitive elements.
And a series of chandeliers inside square ceiling recesses.
If you wonder why it matters, picture this room with a few tables of varying sizes, an assortment of pillows tossed on the bench and flowers on one table, a candle on the next. The use of repetition here makes it smart and edgy and modern and fresh.
I know that was more than one photo, but I wanted to show the whole room.
Next Weeks Challenge for September 3rd.
Photograph an egg or eggs (in it's shell) in any way that you find artistic.
Eggs can be hard to photograph, especially a white egg on a white background. (a good test of your lighting skills.
