Digital Photography: Patterns in the Environment


As I was walking down Ossington, I came across a fence at the front of a house that took my attention. At this certain angle the pattern of the bars are captivating. It was directly at my face level, which made it stand out more than usual. When we take the time to appreciate what is already there, we begin to see beauty within our city and environment.

Taking the time to observe our surrounding gives us the appreciation of the aesthetic feel. Young children can also participate and take part in observing what is around them, and recognizing patterns that exist and are embedded into our atmosphere. Pattern is also an element of art, in which is present in the photograph.

Patterns are seen as repetition that can give the sense of unity. It is easy to catch peoples interest and so this can introduce a new way of looking at things, encouraging early learners to think creatively.
