Brenda's Photo Challenge ~ Textures and Patterns~

It's time for Brenda's Photo Challenge again and our hostess this week is Donna from Cottage Days and Journeys. Thanks Donna , at first I thought this might be a tough challenge but then I realized I wasn't thinking of all the possibilities. I really wanted to get some new photos with my new camera but all of this snow made it a little hard to get any. So thanks Donna for a fun and challenging one and here are my photos. This top one is under the patterns theme, with the pattern of the windows. This is the Hyatt hotel in downtown Cincinnati and I also liked this photo because you can see some of the tall buildings reflected in the windows.




And then I took these two photos of the spiderweb and leaf from my folders because I thought they had both patterns and texture to them. Spider webs have such cool patterns to them along with texture.






This last photo I took last week when the ice storm hit. There is lots of texture with the ice in the trees. I don't know if you can see how it sparkles off the trees. That's it for me. After I did this I thought about 20 different things I could do for this challenge. LOL It was fun Donna, thanks so much for being the hostess. I am out of town again so I'll be around when I return. At the last minute a friend asked me to come and visit her in Hilton Head so I am there for the weekend. You don't have to ask me twice to come to one of my favorite places. LOL Have a great weekend!




P.S. Happy Birthday to my sister June today or as Maddie likes to call her Aunt Coco.................

You did great! Wasn't this fun? I could have posted 50 photos and all would have been of different subjects! LOL. I think I like the building shot the best - cool reflections and great composition!

WOW! That spider web is amazing! We had a big one last year in one corner of our flower bed and my oldest grandson (5) thought it was the coolest thing!

Have a GREAT weekend! Hope it's warm where you are. It's suppose to get in the 70's here in Arkansas today. YIPPEE!
