Extra Photos #3, 4 and 5: More Textures and Patterns

One of my ideas for my photo project was to feature a photo that was simply a texture or pattern. (You can see the one I ultimately selected here.) I took an hour out of an afternoon to wander around, looking for subjects that would give me something interesting. I started by exploring around in my car, because that’s where the camera was. There were plenty of options here. The interior of the car had several patterned fabrics, and textured surfaces throughout. I considered featuring this one, the intricate patterns on the fabric of the backseat.

After exhausting my options with the car, I took a walk. I headed over to a rubberized running track. I figured the surface of the track would give a good texture. I was right. I took a few close up photos of the surface. The first few were off the edge of the track. Then I focused in on an area where a white strip was painted over the red surface. It gave an interesting two-dimensional aspect to the photo. Here they are:
