When the 'Patterns' theme was announced for Self Portrait Challenge, I was hoping to find a wall like this to use as a backdrop. Want to know where I found it? On my normal route to work.
I'd passed it probably thousands of times and never noticed it. It's interesting how sometimes we use patterns and routines to keep things simple and predictable, but often, these same patterns and routines prevent us from seeing beauty right under our noses.
I didn't mean for this to fit thematically with my previous entry for Photo Friday, but I guess it does, huh?
...and I generally consider myself to be a reasonably observant fellow.
