Project 52 Photos: Week 36 Pattern

Project 52 Photos: Pattern

September 12, 2015 Sarah Coggins

If you are paying close attention, you might have noticed I failed on posting a photo for last week’s challenge of bokeh. Time got away from me and we went on vacation. I took plenty of photos including this one:

Emerald Isle, NC 2015: Dolphin Jumping

Still in awe that I managed that capture and with my point & shoot camera nonetheless. But no photos with bokeh. It’s something I really need to spend some time practicing. I’ve managed one or two decent shots in the past at Christmas time, but never think to try it other times of the year. And certainly not in a natural way like Sarah did. Loved her photograph with the detail of a simple yellow leaf and bokeh filled background.

Moving onward to this week’s challenge – pattern. Back in February our local library branch was unexpectedly shut down due to damage when a couple of teens put smoke bombs in the book return drop. Seriously. Dylan was on track out from school and I had planned to start taking Elise to the baby story time there in the week or two following once he was back in school. It never happened because of the closure. Fast forward almost 7 months and we finally have our library back!

On Tuesday, Elise and I attended the very first baby story time since it’s reopening last weekend. While smaller than the branch we visited near our first house, I’ve always loved how open & natural lit this branch is. In the back those windows rise to the wood ceiling/roof structure and all you see beyond are trees from the park. It’s truly a special place tucked into an ever growing part of the city.

What caught my eye in the photo and why I wanted to share it this week is the carpet pattern. It’s perfectly aligned to draw your eye back into the rest of the space.

We’ve greatly missed the programs, events, and kids’ books (admittedly Trent & I mostly borrow eBooks for ourselves these days) the last few months and are excited to have the convenience back.

Is your local library an integral part of your life?

Join in the fun at any time. Next week’s challenge is remember. Find the full list on Sarah Halstead’s blog here. Thanks to Sarah, Amy, and Angie for hosting each week.
