Spices from the pantry. There are many colorful spices which are used in cooking and they can be used in creative ways for photo art, not just for cooking. Try to create something which would make a lovely kitchen poster if you blew it up. An example from pixabay... https://pixabay.com/photos/spices-spoons-salt-pepper-1914130/.

The way we were....It is a contest about sharing old photos of ourselves when we were a lot younger from more than 20 years ago. It doesn't need to be a photo taken by us, anyone could have taken it. There would be no constructive critique about improving the shots, just a fun contest which helps members get to know one another better and hopefully promotes more interaction by guessing who the child or young person might be.

Patterns
The word โ€˜patternโ€™ is derived from the French word โ€˜patronโ€™, which describes recurring elements. The repetition of shapes, lines, and textures will often form the basis of your shot.

Thanks for the suggestion Vibeke, can you be more specific? Like the minimum repetitions you had in mind? Does the entire photo have to be a pattern, or can there be other things in the photo?

Patterns can be found in many things, from landscapes to macros like leaves wings, etc. Show us your most interesting pattern.
