Patterns

How lovely are these patterns? They are from JosephKing's Flickr set, "Security Patterns." He collects patterns from the insides of envelopes – another great idea for what to do with junk mail.

I can't say I've ever stopped to appreciate the beautiful simplicity of the patterns on the inside of envelopes until now. I love when an artist has the ability to make you stop and notice something you've never noticed before, especially when it's something you've passed by a thousand times before.
