Jude, over at Travel Words, has challenged us in February to focus on photography involving patterns. This last week in February she has asked us to use pattern as background for a more substantial subject. The challenge in composing the shot, of course, is to let the patterned background enhance the photo, rather than compete with it or overshadow it. Below is a photo of a friend knitting. I wanted to focus on her hands, with her shirt as the background pattern.
