It’s not a surprise that patterns exist in construction. If they didn’t, you couldn’t support a roof, or build a staircase, or have walls. But watching a building in the process of being constructed helps you realize just how many patterns there are. How many patterns can you see on this rainy day?

Even though there are other elements in the photo: the grass, the shrubbery, and off to the right a cement path and a glimpse of the lake. I purposely blurred those elements and kept the two benches in focus. In addition, the benches are front and center in the frame, and a stark black with a small amount of black shadow, all of which keeps the viewer’s eyes focused on the benches. I also angled the shot to avoid emphasis on the graffiti on the front bench and to show off the curvature of the benches’ arms.
