While waiting for my husband in the theater lobby recently, I snapped a few shots of the carpeting, ginned this one up with a bit of editing, and offer it for Challenger’s Choice.  Quite simply, I love the colors and the shapes and I hope you do, too.

Have a week filled with photos and, hopefully, good weather.

    That looks so good. I would have never known that it was a grungy carpet at a movie theater.

    • Patty, although it wasn’t originally this bright, it didn’t seem grungy, which is always nice. But it did have an eye-catching and cheerful look, which is unusual.


  2. Allan G. Smorra says:

    Well done. This is by far the most colorful carpet that I have seen in quite a while. Who’d a thunk? Ω

  3. Theater design is wayyyyy far out, man.

  4. hypnotic and cool. have a lovely week!

  5. Steve says:

    Looks like some sort of spacey type picture. Cool!

    I like your artsy touch – and carpet? never would have guessed – yet now I seem to recall this kind of carpet (or the unedited pattern) at a movie theatre near us – 🙂

  7. It’s a joyous image that evokes adventure and energy. This image is your reward for being attentive to your surroundings. Happy Photo Challenge.

    • Good morning, Sally. It really is joyful and so pleasing, at least to my eyes. Outside this morning it’s not so pleasing–snow. We may get more than a coupe of inches, although I hope not. I’m really ready to be done with snow for this year, even though I generally enjoy it. I know you got some a few days ago, too, which I’m sure you’d rather not have gotten.

      Have a great week!

    That’s a carpet? 😮 Whoa! That is an awesome picture 🙂

    • It is although, as I mentioned, I did play with the color a bit during the editing. But the basic colors and shapes were already there, attracting my eyes. Thanks for the visit and comment.


  9. What a creative choice, Janet. 😊 Great colors!

    • Good morning, Lisa, and thanks. I felt the same way about the colors, even when not enhanced. Great designer and maybe those white spots helps disguise dropped popcorn. 🙂

    I love the colors and shapes, Janet. Well done!

  11. I would never have known it was carpeting, if you hadn’t said so. I love the colours and patterns. A really cool shot.

    Thanks for showing my blog some love. 🙂

  12. Amy says:

    Love this creative edits! Incredible!

  13. Angeline M says:

    I love the colors and design. I’m thinking streamers in a glass of champagne for some reason.

  14. Jane Lurie says:

    Vibrant and jazzy!

  15. Great work Janet. Love the colours

  16. I love it!!! I too have a soft spot for carpet patterns never thought of capturing them. I’m inspired thanks ,, 🙂

  17. You should not have spilled the beans that it was carpet, Janet. I thought it was some kind of cool absract artwork, ( and actually it is!) – It was something I would love to see on my wall in a frame, in the right room. Although I am not so sure, if it is a carpet design already!!! LOL!! Great stuff for this week’s challenge! The colours and sense of movement are really attractive!

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
