Another week, another professional pet photography Project 52 blog circle post. We are at Week 19 this week and continuing our exploration of lines in our work with lines that form patterns. We are, once again, covering a chapter from the book “The Visual Toolbox: 60 Lessons for Stronger Photographers” by David DuChemin. In the book, DuChemin says “…if you add a juxtaposition or break the pattern in some way, that pattern is not only interesting but serves a visual purpose as well.” Well, what better way to break a pattern than with my favorite subject, Mr. Bojangles. 

We, once again, were at one of our favorite local parks, Sharon Woods, and one of my very favorite spots to take pictures of Mr. Bojangles. These lovely iron benches have a great pattern along the back, perfect for this week’s assignment. Mr. Bojangles was not as cooperative for this session, because he preferred standing to sitting; however, that actually worked to break up the pattern more…so maybe he really was just trying to help me out. 


To see more patterns, head over to Future Framed Photography, South Dakota, and then around the rest of the blog circle until you end up back here.
