Weekly Photo Challenge: From Lines to Patterns

From lines to patterns. We see lines and patterns in the world around us, in nature and things man-made. Sometimes we don’t realize they’re there: on the street, across the walls, up in the sky, and along the ground on which we walk.

Today’s challenge is inspired by Evan Zelermyer‘s stunning urban, abstract, and architectural images from his “Shape, Line, Texture, Pattern” post published earlier this week.

I took these photos at Luxor Temple in Egypt. This temple was founded in 1400 BCE and is located on the east bank of the Nile River in the city today known as Luxor. The numerous columns filled with their hieroglyphics amazed me and I tried to capture them from every angle possible.
