WOW! I lofe this, great lines and perspective. Is it tipping slightly or is that an optical illusion do to the line movement?

I think it must be an optical illusion. I hadn't even noticed until you pointed it out. It certainly was not tippy while we were on it.
So to get this straight then, Mary, since you did not mention the patterns. Do these not strictly count as patterns?

Yes it is a great bridge and sticks in our minds too as some years back Alison and Derek were with us plus Alec who was about 18 months at the time. We hired bikes and remember crossing the bridge. Alec was in one of those little plastic sidecar things attached to the bike.

According to Bryan Peterson, this would entered uunder LINES, not patterns. It's a design but not a pattern. A patterns repeats globally. Like material (generally). Like buttons in a button box or stars in the sky or pebbles on a beach.

It is still a wonderful shot though!

It is lovely repetition, however, repetition of line and design. (not pattern, but eligible as repetition).
