Holiday Colours, Shapes and Patterns!

Over the past couple of years, my eyes have been opened to seeing more pattern in everyday life. Our holiday was no exception:
Striped wood pole roof. Ashes and Square grate after the braai [barbeque]Quaint bridge with metal rounds in the Kruger Park. Slatted blind from our bedroom window and silhouette of my favourite man in the world!Dusty stripy barbed wire fence to keep the Game out. Long colourful early morning queue to get into the Kruger ParkAnd a really beautiful early morning scene of fruit pickers sitting round fires in the fields before the day's work!

Oh, what a delightful collection. I love the bridge! And of course the fruit sellers and other vendors are such a part of our daily "patterns".
Lovely (-:

Welcome back! Looks as though you had a lovely holiday. Winter is definately the best time to go to Kruger, wish it wasn't so far from Cape Town!

Welcome home! What a wonderful collection of 'found' patterns! (Stripes are obviously a recurrent theme... echoing the beautiful zebra from your previous post :)
