Patterns really are your thing!

I thought of you the other day when I was trying (and failing!) to take a photo of an old-fashioned, basket-woven lobster trap.

I'm a great basket fan myself and I love the pattern of this one!

Dina said...

Great idea for a photo.

Aileni said...

Well scraped.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Another cool one. Nicely scraped!

I like that. In fact, I like that a lot. That is a very strong black and white image with a lot of pull and strength.

Carver said...

Wow, I love this. I would have thought it was a ceiling with the sky above if you hadn't told us.

The perfect symmetry - something for a mathematician.

toby said...

Oh, I like that one a lot!

Sometimes the real treasure is at the bottom of the basket!
Lovely monochrome shot, Robin.

Is this because you were a basket case while your husband was away? ;) I am glad he is home and all is right in your little piece of the world again.

Brilliant! I would never have thought to take a picture of the bottom of a basket!

i thought the same thing as Carver

This is amazing! It would make a great quilt design with black bias on a coloured background, or coloured bias on a cream backgroung perhaps...Would you let me copy it and play with a design for myself to try? Please? I was into the stained glass technique a year back but I began too complex and would like to have another go at something simpler- this would be perfect!

Robin said...

By all means Heckety, help yourself :). I'd love to see what you come up with!

Spiderdama said...

Cool shot!:-)

Irene said...

Great image! Perfect as monochrome ... love the pattern!

Dragonstar said...

Beautiful pattern! Just the sort of thing I love.

Thanks for the visit.

Scrape away! That's awesome. Looks like one of those dream catchers that were so popular around here about 15 years ago.
