My Shot Challenge: Patterns

Click the full-screen arrows in the upper right to see the whole image!

Look close—patterns are all around you, whether it's a row of chairs, a field of sunflowers, or a stack of fruit. Capturing repeating patterns in your photography can create an image with real impact.


Check out the photos above for some ideas, then snap some pics of the patterns you find! Upload your photos to My Shot with the tag #PatternChallenge.


The challenge ends October 18. Be sure to check back for a gallery of our favorites.
