Here are a few more photos from the last few days, for Carmi's Thematic Photographic theme - patterns.
This is a workroom at the Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology. The windows look directly onto the pavement on High Street, and for some reason the lights stay on when the students go home. I have always found the view into the workroom, with its row of garment patterns hanging from a rack on the wall, quite fascinating. These may not be quite the sort of patterns Carmi had in mind...
so here are a couple of photos of patterns from nature, from my walk at Travis Wetland (see yesterday's post)
dead leaves hanging on the trunks of cabbage palms
and the twisty, almost hexagonal branches of a species of kowhai.
