SPC Challenge ~ Patterns wk 1

A new month means a new challenge from self portrait challenge. I have really enjoyed jumping in and participating. The theme for August is patterns - "Pattern has a lot of meaning to a persons life. Family history, personal history and cultural history all can be mined to work within this theme........use patterns to accentuate your self, to bring added meaning to the image, to tell a story or point to your history."



I couldn't decide whether I liked it better in color or black and white. The light plays on the all the colors and tones in the first but the lack of color and simplicity of the second seems less distracting and quieter. What do you think????

I don't mean to go against the majority here but I think I like the B&W better. If the assignment is patterns, the stripes really seem to jump out more on that one.
You are really good at these challenges. I have noticed several of yours were top picks last month.

interesting that so many liked the color. I thought it would have been the other way around.
