Patterns

This challenge had ten components, Patterns is one I liked. I find rigid patterns too stiff and formal and want some chaos out of which a pattern arises. I found this in a picture of rusty old bed-springs Taken some years ago.

The repetitive swirls and wiggly lines was most appealing. I overlaid this with a study of the sun setting through a flamboyant tree in flower (We call it poinciana in Australia). It includes a Chest X-ray of a child which almost disappears into the background, but provides enough alteration in the texture to make a frame around the bright centre. There was little photo processing other than the overlain images and the blending mode to bring the components through.
