I am part of a flickr photo club, One After 909. Every month or so we have themed assignments. A few months back we were tasked to find stripes in our environment. I surprised myself with how much I enjoyed this challenge.
When I was in college, one of my teachers was Sean Scully, whose abstract paintings frequently use stripes. It was impossible not to think of Scully's work a bit while doing this challenge, but I realized that his sculptural stripes constructed out of oil piant were actually quite different from the stripes that ended up attracting me. A stripe isn't a stripe isn't a stripe . . .
