Ok…so I was empyting a box of a hundred teabags into two containers yesterday morning. There were four rows of bags and when I got down to the last row I thought, “Hmmm…nice pattern.”

Now I’ve done this MANY times before but never noticed the pattern. Maybe it’s ‘cos I was sitting down this time and the angle was just right.

No big surprise then, that I had to go grab my camera and inflict this on you lot Wink

I just love this Smile
Nothing grabs my attention more than suddenly seeing a pattern, shape, reflection or shadow that you've never seen before, even though you have done the particular action so many times - a great shot Andrew SmileSmileSmile

A well-observed and different pattern.

This is brilliant! I thought at first it was the bunched ende of vertical blinds - wonderful how a good abstract plays tricks with our sense of scale.
