Tiled roofs at Stanton Drew, Somerset; 7 May 2013.
Repeating patterns have a great appeal to the human eye. When photographing them, its often good to have an exception – something that breaks the pattern – to act as a focal point in the picture.
Here, the change in orientation of the patterns between the patterns on the two roofs helps, as does the bluish metal along their interface.

ARCHIVE STILL LIFE
This is a new category on this blog – Archive Still Life studies. The Still Life definition will certainly be followed loosely – e.g. some studies may only have been made “still” by the split second opening of the camera’s shutter – and my objective will be to use as many different types / genres of subject matter as possible. Some images will be Minimalist and, in general, I try to make simpler images, rather than cramming them with visual content.
Some new Still Life studies will (hopefully!) continue to appear.
