Friday, May 10: This week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is Pattern. Patterns are everywhere. Patterns are sometimes intentional and sometimes accidental. They can be decorative or merely a result of repetition, and often patterns can be in the eye of the beholder to discover them.
Sometimes man makes patterns out of nature, as in these tea farms in Boseong, South Korea.
And sometimes nature makes its own patterns, as in these wetlands in Suncheon Bay Ecological Park in South Korea.
At other times, man makes patterns to show reverence at places of worship, such as this Buddhist temple in Maisan, South Korea.
Or to show reverence to Allah, as in the Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan al-Nahyan Mosque in Abu Dhabi, UAE or the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque in Muscat, Oman.
And sometimes, man makes patterns to show his own ability to create opulence, as at Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi.
