I'm lucky to work near the Seattle waterfront and today took this photo on my lunch break. These are reflections of pier pilings. Puget Sound is salt water but there generally aren't big waves, so there's just a gentle lapping of water against the pier. The unusual patterns caught my eye, and were unique to only one pier.

These types of shots always intrigue me. The patterns here are really unique. They remind me of a collection of traditional west coast native art. Very well seen.

This is an original way to display something people might see every day. It is like an abstract work of art, and I like it. :-) The patterns are very interesting.

I like the monochromatic look here
What a lovely way to spend your lunch break

Lucky for sure, but maybe thousands of persons can see that too, but don't noticed it.
So I am clapping my hands for your shot, well seen and realized. It looks as a modern painting of fishes...

i agree with you, the unusual patterns are very striking. I would have photographed them as well :)
turned out to be almost a black and white photo.
Nice abstract work

Hi,I fully agree with Dyerco this seems to reflect native art.Maybe they in turn were inspired by visions like these.Great shot with timeless appeal.Greetings Wolf.
