Repetition

I like photography (if you've been to my not-often-updated photo site, you'll know that), but what I really like is repetitive patterns.

In humour, repetition is funny. In nature, repetition is fascinating. In art, repetition can be beautiful (as in this painting by my friend, Won Seok Lim).


And in writing, repetition is rhetorical...

So, imagine my delight when I found this site. "Exactitudes" -- collections of people in more or less the same pose.

Lovely.

Speaking of photography, and beauty, also check out Their Circular Life....and watch the movement of light (and people) over the course of a day.

Reptition always capture my attention. I always try to capture repetition in architecture with my camera. :)

But what is the difference between beautiful repetition and annoying repetition?

Annoying repetition? Maybe if the artist is repeating something ugly in a non artistic way! :)
