52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog

34. Patterns


Yesterday I went on a road trip with a group of photographer friends, including some from the 52 week photo challenge. It was intended to be an outing to photograph shore birds. Lucky for me the morning started out shrouded in fog. I have a thing for piers in the fog, but because I am not an early morning riser I don’t have a chance to photograph many.

I thought the repeating patterns would make a nice shot for this theme. I hope you all do to?!

Morning Fog


Author: Mindy Towns

Hi, my name is Mindy Towns, I live in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Along with several friends I have been participating in a weekly, theme based, photo blog since August 2012. Each year we receive a new list of 52 themes. We then post a photo each week that fits one of the themes along with a brief description about why we feel the photo fits the theme. Over the years I have learned a lot about my camera, new photography technics and also a lot about my fellow bloggers. I've peeked into their homes, met their families and traveled to exotic places through their photos. This year I am challenging myself further by trying to become even more creative in my posts. I found the cutest little Playmobil person complete with a camera and a little dog. She is going to be my little personal assistant over the coming months. I'm going to use many of the photo skills I have learned from participating in the photo challenge along with some new photoshop tools I have been practicing. I hope you will continue to follow my blog as I change things up a bit this year. Perhaps some of you will raid someones toy chest or toss something cute into your Target shopping cart and get a little silly with me. If you want to see examples of my grown up photography please visit one of my links listed on this blogs home page!

  1. I like fog as well. Nicely done.

  2. Lovely moody shot. I like patterns and fogs too. The textures add to the shot well.

  3. Great shot, well captured and presented!

  4. Very appropriate and it gave me a different outlook on the pier.

  5. Really great use of depth, light and perspective!

  6. Very nice Mindy! Much better than the shots I took. I decided I was too close and should have used a wide angle lense. So I am happy to see yours to enjoy! 😊

    • Thank you Carolyn. Don’t give up on yours to soon! You had all the ingredients… the fog, the pier, the water. As you learn more about photoshop you will probably want to revisit them! Don’t delete!!!

  7. I absolutely love this! I love the pier, and the fog just really makes it fantastic!! =)

  8. beautiful and moody, fog is great.

  9. Well done Mindy, but you can’t forget that even as a non-birder, you did capture that extremely rare dogbird on the field trip.

  10. This shot makes me look and ponder and really feel the mood.
