Repetition, Repetition, Repetition

Exploring with a Camera is looking at repetition this month.  Here's what I found:

Repetition of Object

Love the shape of the signage at the Saatchi Gallery, and the repeated message it gives.

In contrast to the natural shape of the palm trees.  Though in their own way they seem to me to be shorthand for exotic, film, Hollywood (they were actually taken in Cannes).

Repetition of colour

Love this olive colour.

Repetition of Shape

Circles seem to feature in my photography a lot, whether I have styled the shot myself....

........or spotted it out and about:

Repetition of Line
Drawing the eye into the image:

Repetition of message

Guess where this is!

Repetition of light

Little mini light sources, repeated.  Love the glow they provide and the visual interest beyond the candle flame itself.

Combining elements

Love the repetition of the letter blocks and flags....with some repeated lines and light/light reflections on the buildings, drawing the eye in and giving a cohesive whole.

I didn't realise quite how much repetition I would find in my photography until I started looking and there is no doubt that repetition is a valuable way of pulling elements together into a harmonious whole.

Click on the link for more explorations, it's always fascinating to see other interpretations and ideas.



  1. I love the repetition of lines with the fence & the shadows, a great collection of repetition.

  2. Brilliant! I really like your tea-n-scone shot, and the beautiful olive shutters. :) Happy weekend ahead!

  3. Beautiful examples of repetition - I think we all found that we use the concept of repetition much more than we imagined. Love your use of circles and that wonderful olive color.

  4. Super collection of shots illustrating repetition. I've greatly enjoyed viewing them and especially like the bridge-fence and shadows shot. Thanks very much for taking a look at my blog and commenting.

  5. Hi Becs! You found some great examples of repetition. I really love the table setting photo -- such nice composition and colors! The fence with the shadows is really lovely too. Have a relaxing weekend!

  6. Fabulous exploration, Becs! You found some great repetition in your archive. Wonderful variations on repetition, too. Thank you so much for linking this in to Exploring with a Camera!

  7. Excellent examples of repetition! I love the repeating colors; your composition is great and these are beautiful windows! The repeating lines that lead into the photo is fantastic; it's also beautiful composed!!
