Weekly Quick Collage: Patterns



Patterns




“Perceiving the world as well designed and thus the product of a designer, and even seeing divine providence in the daily affairs of life, may be the product of a brain adapted to finding patterns in nature. (38)”

~ Michael Shermer, Why Darwin Matters: The Case Against Intelligent Design





“What we call chaos is just patterns we haven’t recognized. What we call random is just patterns we can't decipher.”
~ Chuck Palahniuk





"Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way."
~ Edward do Bono

    1. Mo, the curlers are from a very old cosmetology text book I picked up at a used book store - the images in it are a hoot!

    1. Thanks, Sue, I'm glad you enjoyed them. The images come from vintage sewing patterns, a vintage cosmetology textbook and a seed catalog.
