If you're just joining us: This entry continues this week's Thematic Photographic theme - patterns - here at Written Inc. TP is a weekly activity that challenges you to pull out your camera or dig into your archives and share something that reflects this week's theme. It's a serious hoot. Really.

I'm just downstairs from the AM640 Toronto Radio studios, about to head inside for a live interview with John Downs. I've become a bit of a regular on the show, and as their resident tech guru I get to banter with John and an endless array of really cool callers. It's as immediate and vital as radio gets, and it's why I love this medium so.
As I always do before I do anything media-related, I pause for a second and focus on what comes next. I take moments like this because it helps me shift gears and get my brain in the game. I'm in a canyon of tall buildings, and the one across the street is particularly reflective. I decide I like the pattern, so I break out the camera and capture a few images before I head inside. More than a two-dimensional image of a building, I suspect I've captured another memorable moment in my weird and varied life.
Your turn: Quiet moments before you go live. Please discuss.
