You often miss patterns until you get far enough away - or high enough above - to see them from an entirely new perspective. As the Thematic Photographic pattern theme (see here for where it all began) rolls along, I find myself looking for patterns in everything I see. I try to stand in a different place, focus my eyes differently, force my brain to process it differently.
Why? Because life's just a little less precious when we let it all become routine.
Your turn: This photo resonates with me, as it keys off of the classic Malvina Reynolds tune, Little Boxes, (wiki entry, lyrics) that had some less-than-complimentary things to say about suburbia. What say you about suburbia?
