I noticed the necks all seem to curl in the same direction...
And who says there's no "S" in flamingo? I can see it right in the pictures!

This pic was taken in Argentina and yes, you guessed it, the Flamingos coil their necks in the opposite direction in the southern hemisphere!

What was exasperating when we visited the Galapagos, which straddle the Equator: every now and then the film would start winding in the opposite direction.

Not much mystery to the monotonous pattern below. As I have cropped, even as I look at it, it raises the question: Where does it end?

14TH century design apparently , used by dervishes to collect donations, part of the permanent collection at the Aga Khan Museum here in Toronto, week worth a visit if you are here

Long time since we were last in Toronto. It's generally drawn us because of the Royal Ontario Museum, primarily for their paleontology collections (or palaeontology if you prefer).

Show your texture, pattern, repetition, shape etc. shots here!

There is a large collection of taxidermied ontario animals courtesy of a great uncle of mine, his house terrified me as a child . No electricity no running water and full of stuffed animals in the middle of nowhere, he was born in it in the 1880s, and the rom is on my list for the weekend (with the AGO) big chihuly exhibit right now

At the ROM take a look at the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition - inspiring and intimidating at the same time.

Must be due to the Coriolis effect...

That is a fine piece of home craft work. In time, I would expect it to be in a museum.

very nice

I have read that an authentic Persian rug must have an intentional flaw in it. Seems like it is believed that only Allah (God) creates something perfect so anything man creates must be flawed.

no idea if that is true but sounds nice to me

I think this semi-macro image of a flower qualifies as a pattern.
