We are half way through our patterns and texture theme, it really is a topic that has caught your imagination. If you look around you where you are sitting right now you will see something that could make a photograph. That’s just what Jenny Owen did for her photo here of her radiator. Its such a simple concept yet really effective.

Gareth Morgan took a more industiral approach, showing the internal pipework of an old boiler for the River Don Engine. John Gorman saw this amazing reflection of the Fountain Precinct building in the city centre. The colours are really vivid and eyecatching. Reflection images usually work best on a clear bright day so the light enhances the reflection, which John has proven here.

Sheffield has no shortage of former industrial units and John Scholey has used Portland Works to follow our patterns theme this week. The windows are repeated in regimental rows and are a great reminder of our industrial past. It proves there is beauty in the most unusual places. In contrast to the man-made structure of the brick arches, John has taken a picture of a cactus in the botanical gardens where nature has formed the most beautiful patterns. The vertical rows of spikes are almost perfectly spaced.

You still have two more weeks to send me your entries before I share them with the Harrison Cameras team to judge. I always carry my phone with me so I never miss a shot, so don’t panic if you don’t have a fancy camera, the competition is open to everyone. You may already have an image that you have taken in the past you can submit. It just has to be taken locally.
