Thursday Challenge: Patterned -

"Patterned"
photograph by Mick Mather
A completely untouched photograph, aside from cropping, for the Thursday Challenge theme, patterned. Once again this week I'm not here ... this is Third Thursday and I'm at an art opening. I'm thinking about smuggling a few bottles of wine into this one. Let me see, where in the world did I stash that Riesling? :)

Yes, it's patterned. And "you're not from here" (Listen to Lara Fabian)?

What's that?
Don't put the Riesling in a mug with holes!

I believe all the world's wine is here in Finland -it's Midsummer Night's Eve and celebrating is starting.
The nightless night is rainy and grey, but that doesn't bother. It's summer.

That pattern reminds me of the Finnish Marimekko-designs.

Your pic, though, has more warmth and colour, I find Marimekko somewhat too clinical and cold.

This is a photograph of that awful looking, orange, construction site barrier fencing. I use the term fencing very loosely by the way.

elegia:
I did love the pattern in this. Now that you say so, where am I from? :)

mary stebbins taitt:
Thanks. As mentioned above, once I cropped the original photograph, this pattern was quite compelling for me.

hpy:
LOL @ the mug with the holes. As I say above, this is a photograph of orange, plastic fencing one might see wherever construction crews are working. It droops, it sags, it blows in the wind ... making interesting shapes that affect the pattern.

susupetal:
I've been wondering how long it would take you to attempt to lure me to Finland! If, as you say, all the wine in the world is now in Finland? I'll be packing my things and moving forthwith! :D

It's that orange, plastic netting that construction sites often use to keep the sidewalk superintendents at arms length! :)
