I'm linking this post to Paula's Thursday's Special. Her theme this week is Patterns, and here I am posting exactly that. If you like patterns, go and see what delights her talented followers have come up with.




The block by the river my son is contemplating buying yielded a sumptuousness of decaying corrugated iron. There were piles of it lying around, horizontally, overgrown by lantana or held in place by metal weights, and vertically in a panel behind the makeshift kitchen, each offering different arrays of ornamentation. I'm posting my photos in defiance of a grandson who thinks I'm decidedly weird and who won't entertain the idea that when he's my age he might see the charm in patterns of rust and paint. Maybe you'd like to indicate whose view you support?
