I've had a hard time looking for patterns even though I know they are all over the place. And what's up now I simply cannot compete with. I wish I had a macro But I got a few filters that I stack on my current filter on my 50mm 1.8 lens. I don't know what they are called but it kind of allows me to take closer up pictures. Nothing as good as a macro lens though. So I gave it a shot.
These are just blah aren't they? Oh well. I tried!!

and this one I put up yesterday but I think I'm just getting patterns, textures and lines confused oh well! i thought it looked cool at the time. Not so sure anymore.

I think they're all great pics! I think any of those except the bubbles would make a great pattern entry! (I just think the bubbles aren't a true pattern, JMO--I still love the pic though!)
My faves here are the placemat (?) #2 or the tablecloth #3!

For not having a macro I think these are great. I especially like the 1st one and the bubbles.

Just chug-chug-chugging along.
thanks! #2 is part of a painting I bought in Paris i was a bit surprised at how close up I can get with the filters. The only downfall is that not all of the picture is crisp, like in #3. I had my aperture at like 7 or something and that was no good. I'll have to experiment some more.
all of these have patterns!!! I love the first one, that's really cool! and the bubbles is cool too ... it's similar to one I took today, actually. I'll be adding that to *my* pattern thread later. ha ha ha
I know what you're talking about with the filters. those are pretty cool, actually. I think I might ask for a set for Christmas. not buying a macro lens any time soon, I have my eye on a good zoom lens that I'm saving up for.

I really like #2, which looks great for a non macro. If it helps, I do not have a macro lens either, but a macro converter that you attatch to the end of whatever lens you are using at the time (a bit like a filter I guess, but no need to stack them).
