This image doesn't quite belong, as there really isn't a pattern, but I though the the similarity to robgski's image was interesting. It's a tower at the Grand Canyon. Scan from a chrome.
I see several things grouped in threes in the picture:
3 rings
3 groups of windows
The bottom ring is 6-sided (though not all sides are seen), therefore a multiple of 3
The windows in the groups total 6
On the white-painted wall area 3 chevron-like designs are grouped together
Walking in front of them are 3 people walking close together
3 other people appear in the scene: 1 behind those three, one next to the hexagon, one whose legs only show
There are even 3 benches or short cupboards along the white-painted wall.

This image is not formed from a very repetitive, predictable, and symmetrical pattern, but it is just chock full of repeated images organized in 3s or multiples of 3. I may have even missed a few of them! This image definitely belongs in this thread, and can serve as inspiration to the rest of us participants to not just consider pattern and texture in the most obvious of ways.

Seems I've unwittingly posted triplets.

Not much pattern, but texture

This emphasizes the grain texture from using expired TMax p3200 (exposed at 1600, processed for 6400 in HC-110B) as the medium as opposed to the subject matter. This is the burial ground in central Salem, Massachusetts taken with the 18mm f/11 Takumar-Fisheye.

Cheers, Allan

Pokeweed, definitely a late summer plant. We usually have one somewhere on the property.

Yup, it grows wild all over the place around here.
