Patterns occur all around us. Many are seen in nature and our culture has included many of these to design and beautify our surroundings. Our advertising incorporates many patterns to help identify certain brands. As I looked around for some good examples to photograph, it seemed my camera was always somewhere else. Reckoning that there must be nearby examples, I began looking for patterns around the house. There they were. Those tissue boxes really did have patterns that help to brighten them. Gone are the brand logos (they are torn off when opening the boxes) and the rather drab-looking boxes one had to hide in another box to make it presentable. Actually, they have become rather bright and cheery — in spite of — A-CHOO!!!
