Finding Patterns

One of my favorite things to do is to find patterns in my environment by focusing in on an object or set of objects - not showing the entire scene. Here is one example, using stone pavers and a pedestrian barrier at Valley Forge National Historic Park:


A large area around a monument was paved in this overlapping shell pattern. I was fascinated by how the arrangement almost created an "optical illusion" effect. It looked like the ground itself was curving.
